Data analytics veteran Craig Larmer (pictured above) has been promoted to the position of Consulting Director at Stellar.

Craig joined Stellar in 2011, and had been working as a Lead Consultant with a range of Stellar customers, including Toyota, NZDF, Global Dairy Trade and Fletchers.

“There’s always a lot happening in the data and analytics world,” says Craig, “and part of my new role involves keeping an eye on what’s going on and working out how to apply the best ideas to help our existing and prospective customers.

“The rest of the role is about making sure the many projects on the go are continuing to deliver the consistently high-quality solutions that Stellar is known for. It’s a big step up for me but I’m definitely ready to take on the challenge!”

Craig has 20 years of commercial IT experience, and has worked with a wide variety of database and business intelligence products including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, Wherescape RED, Crystal Reports, Cognos ReportNet and Metric Manager.

“During his career Craig has completed projects in many industries including professional services, pharmaceuticals, public sector, financial services and insurance,” says Travis Barker, Consulting Partner at Stellar.

“This new role will see Craig working at a more strategic level within Stellar and for our customers.”
