New general manager for SolutionsPT
Published: 20 July 2016 - Sarah Mead
Industrial IT provider, SolutionsPT, has announced the promotion of Sue Roche to General Manager. SolutionsPT specialises in providing industrial IT services to assist manufacturers in improving operational efficiencies, through operational intelligence, disaster resilience, cyber security and mobile technology solutions. The company is also the sole-authorised distributor in the UK and Ireland for Schneider-owned Wonderware.
Sue, previously Business Unit Manager of SolutionsPT’s Wonderware UK & Ireland division, will assume full responsibility for all of SolutionsPT’s operations and will report directly to the Board, whilst retaining her position as lead on Wonderware UK & Ireland.
Sue has been with SolutionsPT for eight years and has played a key role in shaping the company’s evolution from traditional SCADA provider, to industrial IT experts capable of providing fully integrated industrial hardware and software solutions. Her appointment as General Manager is part of SolutionsPT’s market strategy to go ‘beyond HMI’ and deliver solutions which embrace cloud, mobile and virtualisation technologies to meet customer requirements for high availability and resilience.
Sue has presided over Wonderware UK and Ireland during a period of substantial growth for the business which has seen it take on a number of significant projects for both new and existing clients, adding some of the largest and most influential businesses in the UK to the company’s books. This has included a major sales expansion with a leading water and wastewater customer, whilst significantly growing the company’s presence in the dairy sector.
Sue said SolutionsPT is firmly focused on continuing this growth and working with Wonderware parent company Schneider to become the UK and Ireland’s leading SCADA and industrial IT supplier. She said: “We’ve had some fantastic wins over the last few years and have expanded into new sectors such as Infrastructure as well as growing our presence in key markets such as Food and Drink and Life Sciences. Wonderware will continue to be at the centre of our offering but we believe that our complementary industrial IT expertise, which includes mobility, cyber security and a managed service offering, will enable us to work with clients and the Systems Integrator community to deliver a holistic solution capable of delivering real efficiencies.”
