ITL Down Under
Meet Kerry Cowan, Sales Director at Innovative Technology (Asia Pacific) Pty Ltd in Brisbane, Australia.
G’ Day! I’m the new guy based in Australia …
Originally from New Zealand I emigrated to Australia with my wife and two daughters over 15 years ago. Although daunting at the time it turned out to be one of my better life choices as it has provided many opportunities for all of us.
I’ve worked in various sales roles over the years, shortly after arriving in Australia I gained a business development position with a slot machine manufacturer where I stayed for over 12 years. I had the opportunity to work and live in Macau China, with responsibility for some key accounts in Macau as well as responsibilities for Cambodia, Philippines and Vietnam.
The company was bought by a U.S corporation and 3 years later I relocated back to Australia and was given responsibility for business development, focusing on new business markets, where I remained until the company was sold again.
I am really excited to join ITL. I will be covering the Asia Pacific region, to build and develop our business throughout these important markets. I’ve been looking forward to meeting the ITL team and to starting my new role. I’m extremely proud to have been given the opportunity to establish the new ITL Asia Pacific office in Australia. Located on Coronation Drive in Brisbane just outside the CBD, ‘Coro drive’ as the locals refer to it, is a great location!
I’ve been in the UK all this week for product training and had a chance to meet some of the team. I’ve had a great time in Manchester; everyone has given me a friendly welcome, making my first visit to Oldham a very positive and rewarding one. I managed to see some of the sights of the city and I look forward to working with everyone over the coming months and years ahead.
