Charles (Charlie) DeWitt firmly believes that employees are a company’s most valuable asset and is passionate about helping organisations worldwide bring this concept to life. As managing director of the Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia (ANZSEA) region for Kronos, DeWitt oversees a thriving ecosystem of customers and partners, and works with his team on go-to-market efforts for strategic workforce management solutions.
In 2018, DeWitt made the move from Kronos headquarters in Massachusetts to its regional ANZSEA headquarters in Sydney, Australia to help expand and strengthen the company’s footprint in the local market. He spends much of his time travelling across the world and educating organisations of all sizes on strategic workforce management, product innovation and the use of data to empower employees and drive better business outcomes.
When DeWitt joined Kronos in 2004 as vice president of business development, he was instrumental in driving corporate strategy, including forging key partnerships, competitive intelligence and ensuring that Kronos solutions meet the unique needs of financial services, healthcare, hospitality, logistics, manufacturing, public sector and retail industries.
Prior to joining Kronos, DeWitt served as vice president of finance, and then vice president of strategy, for i2 Technologies (now JDA Software), a provider of supply chain planning and optimisation solutions. In these roles, he led his team to determine strategic responses to shifting competitive and economic conditions on a tactical and operational level.
DeWitt holds a bachelor’s degree in science from the University of Maine, as well as a master’s degree in management and chemical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
