Enterprise resource planning provider SYSPRO has appointed Rob Stummer as its new chief executive officer of Asia Pacific.

Earlier this year Stummer was appointed as CEO of SYSPRO Australiasia, where his success helped to grow the company across the region. Now his mandate includes Asia Pacific as a whole.

Stummer adds, “APAC is a dynamic market to operate in as it has some of the most advanced manufacturing systems in the world.  I'm looking forward to putting my experience to use in further building this region and SYSPRO as a whole. Ultimately our customers and partners are central to the success of our business and they will remain key to our operational realignment and therefore our ongoing success.

Prior to joining SYSPRO, Stummer held executive positions in private as well as publicly listed companies including KPMG, Accenture and IFS. He holds several degrees, including a Master's degree in Information and Communication Technology from the University of Melbourne.
