Fujitsu General recognises best in ANZ

Delegates from Australia and New Zealand came together in June to celebrate the company’s top performers and plan for future success at the 2022 Fujitsu General Conference.

Held in Hobart, Tasmania, the conference was an opportunity for the delegates to learn about the company’s key priorities for 2023 and beyond, while also recognising the success, innovation and hard work achieved over the year. Delegates also visited Tasmania’s Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, a rehabilitation centre for injured and endangered wildlife, where Fujitsu General made a $8,000 donation.

One of the key focuses of the conference was Fujitsu General’s desire to align its business success with its corporate social responsibility. Workshops and presentations delivered by a range of guest speakers discussed how Fujitsu can enhance its customers’ experience while simultaneously playing an important part in the community, environment and society in which it operates.

Philip Perham, Managing Director, Fujitsu General Australia and New Zealand said the conference was a great opportunity to reconnect and refocus on what matters most to Fujitsu General, including customer care, company culture, and commitment to the community.

“Fujitsu General is a market leading brand and that doesn’t happen by resting on our laurels. The annual conference is a valuable tool to determine the best way to drive successful personal and business outcomes. When we understand what matters to the community, our customers and our team, we can confidently make decisions that align with those needs.

“We also use this time together to celebrate achievements, milestones and fantastic work performed by our team, without whom Fujitsu General would not be what it is today.”

The conference concluded with a gala awards night that recognised individual team members for their notable performance during the previous financial year. The winners included:

  • Business Manager of the Year (Retail) – Rob Joncevski (WA)
  • Business Manager of the Year (Commercial) – Kady Jamal (SA/NT)
  • Business Manager of the Year (Dealer) – Raquel Tubieros (VIC)
  • Business Manager of the Year (New Zealand) – Mark Lentz
  • State Manager of the Year – Brendon Macpherson (WA)
  • Field Technician of the Year – Ben Seal (SA/NT)
  • Innovation Award ANZ – Fujitsu General Marketing team (Website Project)
  • Culture and Values Champion AU – Dana Nelson (QLD)
  • Culture and Values Champion NZ – Nicole Sole

Fujitsu General also welcomed Peter Cashel to the ANZ executive team with a promotion to General Manager of Sales.

Peter joined Fujitsu General as an apprentice in 1997 and has held various roles over the past 25 years in the product and sales teams, most recently as Head of Sales.

“Peter is a highly valued member of the Fujitsu General family. This well-deserved promotion provides him with a seat on the executive team, and we are excited about the contributions Peter will bring to the leadership team and the business. His approach to Fujitsu General’s strategic goals, his commitment, focus and determination on delivering results will certainly greatly influence our ongoing success,” commented Perham.
