Ultimately our customers and partners are central to the success of our business and they will remain key to our operational realignment and therefore our ongoing success.”

Prior to joining SYSPRO, Stummer held executive positions in private as well as publicly listed companies including KPMG, Accenture and IFS. He holds several degrees, including a Master’s degree in Information and Communication Technology from the University of Melbourne.
