Icon Integration announce expansion into New Zealand

Icon Integration, the Australian supply chain and data analytics consultancy, has announced it will open a business entity in New Zealand.

The formal expansion into NZ will see the company opening the doors to a physical office and running its consultancy practice from the ground.

Icon Integration is an agile consultancy with niche focus in SAP supply chain execution as well as data and analytics.

According to the company, significant client growth in New Zealand in the past twelve months resulted in the requirement to deploy a local business entity and consulting practice.

The New Zealand business is headed up by Johnny Balich, who has more than 10 years working for Fonterra in senior roles for supply chain, logistics and data management.

According to a statement, Johnny’s core vision is to create the local hub required to implement the large SAP supply chain transformational projects across the country.

With seven people currently on the ground including Chris Orme and Amit Sharma, Icon are targeting to build a robust delivery capability.

According to Icon, this new business entity demonstrates the company’s commitment to New Zealand, as well as the growth in emerging enterprise level digital technologies in the supply chain and distribution functions.

The increase of data, analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning and cloud provide a massive opportunity in the local market, Icon states.

Icon Integration has four practices across Australia and New Zealand, and services more than 100 clients across the broader Southeast Asia market.
