Michael Murphy - Intergenite Profile
What do you do?
I am Intergen’s new Northern Regional Manager and have overall responsibility for the function and profitability of the Northern Region and building our overall identity in the Auckland marketplace.
How do you make a difference?
I bring strengths in project governance to the role, and add value by providing oversight in this area. Having been in the IT industry in New Zealand for 15 years, I have a very strong network and can bring Intergen together with organisations with which we can work cooperatively in the market.
What do you love about your job?
I just started – so ask me again in six months! I’m looking forward to getting back to what I know. In my last role I deliberately made the career choice to take a sales leadership role in an area in which I had no domain knowledge (hardware). I built my skill set as a professional sales manager, and now I am looking forward to getting back to a domain that is well known to me and applying the general business and team management skills I’ve developed in my days at HP, bringing these two aspects together into this more general role.
A bit about yourself…
I’m married to Hilary and have two sons, John (14) and Christopher (11). I live in St Heliers and came to New Zealand from the UK 15 years ago, when we came here on holiday and never left. We definitely call New Zealand ‘home’ now. My main hobby is football and I keep myself busy outside of work coaching two reasonably successful youth football teams.
