DeWitt was appointed in November and succeeds Peter Harte, who will now cover Europe, the Middle East, and Asia as Kronos’ Vice President of Enterprise Sales.
DeWitt takes up this role after relocating from Kronos’ global headquarters in Boston, where he served as Vice President of Business Development. He has over 15 years of technology, strategy and leadership experience across North America and APAC. Prior to joining Kronos, he served as the Vice President of Finance and Strategy at i2 Technologies and is an alumnus of the MIT Sloan School of Management.
“Australia and New Zealand have some of the most complex HR environments in the world,” DeWitt said. “They really bring the ‘fair go’ attitude to business to protect the rights of employees, but the highly regulated conditions can make it genuinely difficult for businesses to get it right. Kronos’ expertise is in helping businesses simplify the complexity and implement systems that make it easy to take the right actions repeatedly. My strategy to achieve strong growth and profitability is the same as we advise our clients – focus on customers and people. We have implementations in over 100 countries around the world and in the last five years we’ve invested heavily in R&D, so we’re in a very strong position to guide Australian businesses as they grow.”
According to reports, Kronos has partnerships with more than 700 customers in Australia and New Zealand.
