IBM Australia and New Zealand has expanded its senior leadership team with the appointment of Kate Tollenaar to the role of Director Government & Enterprise, ANZ.

IBM says Tollenaar will report to Australian and NZ Managing Director Nick Flood, and notes that “with over twenty years of experience in defence, Kate has worked across a range of roles including AI, ICT delivery, change management and strategic planning”.
