Jo-Anne Ruhl is the new vice president and managing director of Workday Australia and New Zealand.

Stephen Jack, who previously held the role for more than four years, continues as a director with Workday Australia - New Zealand, helping advise and support Ruhl on business and customer strategies.

Ruhl joined Workday in 2018 and successfully led and helped grow Workday's ANZ mid-enterprise and customer experience team. She has built her career in the technology industry in a variety of leadership roles over the last two decades, including roles at Oracle and Infor.

Workday Australia and New Zealand, which has been operating in the region for more than a decade, continues to see strong customer momentum with organisations such as The Warehouse Group, Carlisle Homes, Chorus, and Swyftx, having selected Workday to support their businesses in the changing world.

"Jo-Anne's ability to build high performance teams and deliver on strong customer and business outcomes perfectly aligns with leading our ANZ business into the next phase of its growth. It is always a pleasure to promote from within and Jo-Anne is ideally positioned to partner with our customers on their digital transformation journey," Workday Asia Pacific and Japan president David Webster says.

"I'm so excited to take on this opportunity at Workday, leading a strong and dynamic team and continuing the growth of the ANZ business," Ruhl says.

"As I take on this new role, I see an even greater opportunity to partner closely with our customers, as they look to deploy innovative finance and HR solutions to support their needs in the changing world of work."
