Sandra Tuohy has been appointed as the new state manager for Fujitsu's Western Australia and Northern Territory business.

In her new role, she will be responsible for mentoring and leading the sales and service management teams across the states, and working with customers to deliver best results.

“With a new leader in Western Australia and Northern Territory who is empowered to make a difference, Fujitsu anticipates that customers across the region will benefit significantly from Sandra's return to West Australia," says Conway Kosi, vice president sales and customer service management, Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand.

“Sandra is highly regarded for her ability to mentor and inspire large sales teams by leading from the front, and prides herself on her ability to establish and maintain genuine customer relationships," he says.

"This is important as Fujitsu continues to work closely with customers in a co-creation approach to solve their business challenges.

Tuohy has almost 20 years of experience within the information technology and telecommunications sectors. She has held a number of leadership positions, most recently as marketing and alliances director at Thomas Duryea Logicalis, where she was responsible for significant year-on-year growth in professional services, building out the sales teams in Sydney and Melbourne, and strengthening channel relationships.

“I'm excited to join Fujitsu to help to grow our business with customers throughout Western Australia and Northern Territory, and I'm pleased to be back in WA," says Tuohy.

"Fujitsu's co-creation philosophy aligns closely with my own values around collaboration, so I'm looking forward to achieving excellent outcomes for Fujitsu's customers in the region," she says.

Fujitsu specialises in information and communication technology (ICT), offering a full range of technology products, solutions, and services. The company reported consolidated revenues of 4.0 trillion yen (US $36 billion) for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019.

In Australia, Fujitsu successfully completed the implementation of an Emergency Services Computer Aided Dispatch (ESCAD) system for Ambulance Tasmania in December 2019.

It completed the integration of emergency systems across all emergency service organisations in Tasmania, including Police, Fire Service, Ambulance, and State Emergency Service.

“Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand is honoured to have helped to streamline the emergency response process for Tasmanian Emergency Services,” says Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand CEO Mike Foster.

“This is a great example of how digital transformation can deliver real business value and, in this case, contribute to saving lives across Tasmania.

At the time, the company also outlined the megatrends and business opportunities of retail.

Fujitsu has compiled these insights into a report, entitled Fujitsu Future Insights Digital Transformation in Retail.

In the Digital Transformation in Retail report, Fujitsu describes its vision for the future of digitalised retail services and proposes how retail and other industries will be transformed by its digital technologies.
