Dell Australia boss resigns
Dell's Angela Fox.

Replaced by Angela Fox.

Long-running Dell Australia and New Zealand managing director Joe Kremer has resigned from the top job after more than a decade with the PC maker.

The company announced today Kremer would be stepping down to spend time with his family and to "pursue personal and philanthropic interests".

Kremer joined Dell in 2003 and was appointed ANZ boss in 2005.

He will be replaced by Angela Fox, a New Zealander who was previously vice president and general manager of Dell’s services business across Asia Pacific and Japan, based in Singapore.

Kremer said in a statement it was extremely gratifying that an executive he had hired into the business in 2007 had been named his successor.

"It is a testament to [Fox's] achievements that she is returning to run the business in ANZ," Kremer said.

Fox will relocate and begin in the role on July 7.

The top-level reshuffle comes as Dell posted a 7.8 percent increase in Australian sales in the 12 months to 31 January 2014.

But the PC maker's local profits dipped slightly, down from $11 million to $10.2 million.

Kremer was "reluctant" to discuss specifics around numbers, but said the company had enjoyed some "strong shared gains across most of our lines".
