AMS Company Update: October 2020

2 Oct, 2020

We are into the final quarter for 2020, daylight saving has begun and the AMS team is also into full-on saving mode.  

We’re saving on commute time with most of us still working from home in level 2.0.  We’re saving on travel with borders locked down and being based on the North Shore, Auckland’s Harbour Bridge disruption.  But most of all, we’re saving the best of 2020 for the last – a not-so-subtle teaser for something big that’s yet to come.

But what we can talk about are some exciting new appointments and promotions within the AMS Team. Congratulations to:

  • Christ McDermott – IT Operations Manager 

Chris is now responsible for all AMS IT, including our cloud offerings and all internal IT services for the AMS team.

  • Nick Schubert – Software Development Manager 

Nick is now responsible for the development team – a significant role that covers everything from the technology they use, to delivery and team building.

  • Sarah Hare – Technical Services Manager 

Looking after the technical support side of the business including customer service.

  • Gail Lees – Continuous Improvement Consultant 

Working with our AMS Outsource team to ensure we continue to improve on our service delivering including customer led innovations. 

New and returning team members

We also welcome Bronwyn Cochius our new Service Desk Analyst who will be working with Sarah and Jamie in the Support Team.  And rejoining our Auckland team, having flown through quarantine in coming back from the Philippines, is our Professional Services Consultant, Roger Smith. Great to see the AMS team continuing to grow.

Milestone celebrations

Finally, we are celebrating those who have reached some significant milestones with AMS.  Congratulations to Software Developer, Jack Wu, who has been with us for five years this September and Hogan Oh in our Insurance team who notched up a significant 10 years with AMS in November. 

AMS is indeed lucky to have such a talented bunch working on our team and particularly thankful for the ongoing dedication in working around Level Two restrictions. We are hopeful of being able to get-together, in person, to celebrate as a team but in the meantime, it is a virtual morning-tea all round.
