Nigel Peach has joined management consultant Digital Lifecycle Group (DLG) as partner for managed services.
In the role, Peach is expected to establish the company as a data-driven sourcing organisation with a focus on ongoing supplier value management.
“Peach brings significant industry and commercial expertise to the Group, but most importantly his specialist expertise in sourcing and knowledge of the IT landscape and the suppliers within in it,” DLG executive chairman Ian Woollett said.
“I welcome his appointment and believe Peach will not only build on our capabilities, he will further drive our mandate to successfully deliver tangible digital outcomes for our clients.”
Before joining DLG, Peach served as IBM's Australian channel chief until February this year. He held the role for six months after joining in September 2017, having taken over the role from Rhody Burton, who left in May 2017.
Prior to that, he worked at Pure Storage as its regional director, as well as stints with Servian, Dell EMC, and HP.
“There’s currently a gap in the market that DLG will address. You can’t transform to digital without transforming your own sourcing and vendor management and this is where we can help,” Peach said.
“Digital transformation is driving a fundamental shift in cost bases and associated skills. I look forward to assisting clients to align their operating models, cost base and suppliers to the digital world.”
Last week, DLG acquired Sydney financial management software vendor ClearCost as part of its plan to become a “complete digital lifecycle provider”.
