Former HP executive Rob Mesaros has joined Currie Group in the newly created role of strategic executive advisor. Mesaros joins the business after 15 years with HP, many of which were spent abroad, in various senior executive roles.
In this new role, Mesaros is responsible for reviewing Currie Group’s end-to-end business operation, with a focus on business planning and strategic improvement initiatives.
Additionally, he will work closely with the business’ staff, key customers and partners to ensure future success.
“I am excited to be joining Currie Group in a senior advisory role at such an important time for the company and industry’s evolution,” Mesaros said.
“I have always respected Currie Group’s vision, and most importantly its attention to driving the right customer centric transformation. The digital transformation of industries is just heating up, and I’m confident that Currie Group, coupled with their vendors, will continue to play an important role in driving that transformation.”
Most recently, Mesaros served as the vice president and head of 3D printing and digital manufacturing for Asia Pacific and Japan at HP, at the company’s Singapore operations. Mesaros said he made the move as he wanted his family to be closer to home.
“Personally, the time has come for my family to return home. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at HP, from meeting many wonderful people to experiencing diverse cultures and business environments. I want to thank all of the HP teams I have been a part of, and the many HP channel partners, for providing me with a platform to learn and grow,” he said.
According to HP Australia and New Zealand managing director Michael Boyle, Mesaros made “very significant contributions” during his tenure at HP.
“During his 15-year tenure, Rob made very significant contributions to HP in a variety of roles across the region, including as managing director in Australia and New Zealand post HP separation in 2015 till May 2018,” he said.
“We thank Rob for his leadership over many years both here in Australia and abroad and we look forward to working closely together at Currie Group.”
Currie Group executive chairman David Currie welcomed Rob to the team saying, “Currie Group is a long-standing partner with HP and having Rob join the group in the capacity of strategic executive advisor makes sense on many levels.
“Rob’s experience in running business operations in A/NZ and across the region, as well as his deep technical knowledge of the print industry, is complementary to our business model and our future direction. We look forward to working with Rob and all our partners to chart the course for growth and future success.”
