We are proud to announce the senior appointment of Tony Pearson, who will be Neto’s first Director of Sales Channel Development. With this appointment, we will be able to facilitate stronger partnerships and benefit retailers.
Pearson comes to Neto after spending in excess of 20 years in various senior management roles within Telstra, which owns 51 percent of Neto after a successful acquisition in 2015 and most recently with the Vita Group which is Telstra’s largest partner.
“This is a very exciting opportunity for me,” Pearson said. “Neto isn’t a startup company any longer, but it carries out its business in the spirit of one, and I see a lot of potential to build on the powerful foundations that it has already developed in the market.”
Pearson’s key task within his new role is to increase awareness, through Neto’s partners, of what true omni-channel retailing looks like. Too often Australian retailers maintain completely different technology environments for their online platforms and their in-store POS system, and this means they are often not running as effectively as they should be.
“We have a partner network of some 500 organisations,” Pearson said. “That’s a powerful community of expertise and innovation that we can leverage to help improve how retail is done in Australia for businesses of all sizes.
“My goal is to deepen our engagement with those partners and help place Neto at the centre of the conversation about the role technology has in the current retail environment.”
Pearson’s appointment comes as Neto continues to scale upwards, following the successful launch of its in-store POS solution earlier in the year.
“Demand for these technology-driven solutions to common retail pain points has never been stronger, as Australian retailers come to understand that they need to compete on a global scale now,” Neto Director and COO, Jason Titman, said.
“We are very excited to have Tony Pearson on board. The experience that he brings from Telstra – which has some of Australia’s largest partner networks of all – will be an immense advantage as we find new opportunities to deepen engagement with our partner businesses.”
