Business Development Manager - Wellington
Patrick joined Qual IT after 20 years as a Senior Consultant in the Wellington recruitment market. Since 1999, Patrick (or Paddy as he is known internally) has been working across the I T & T sector. Starting at the end of Y2k was an interesting time.
Over the past 18 years the sector has changed rapidly, not only in terms of technology but also, and more especially, in the way in which business consumes technology. There is now a far stronger partnership between the business and technology and conversations are more focused on business outcomes than which piece of kit or application you are using. Patrick is equally comfortable working at the people side of solutions/services delivery or the business side.
In his role as BDM, Wellington, Patrick is looking to build on the successes and the reputation that Qual IT has gained over the past 13 years. Key to this will be to ensure that the wider market is aware of the increasing range of Assurance / Testing services that Qual IT provides, as well as the broader service offerings such as Consultancy and Business Analysis that we are bringing to market.
Outside of work, family-life is pretty all consuming with two teenage boys. Patrick is passionate about sports and still an active participant in golf, surfing and the gym (though the football is now just a vicarious pursuit following the youngest around the football field of Wellington). Advocacy for the ASD community is always front of mind as well.Patrick Lane's LinkedIn Profile
