As Fujitsu's current Australian CEO, Rob Vawdrey, moves up the ranks into the company's international business unit, ex-Kaz group executive Mike Foster has been bumped up the roster to temporarily steer the business until a new head can be found.

Fujitsu announced yesterday that Vawdrey, CEO of the Australian business unit, is set to move up to take on the role of corporate senior vice president of the company's Global Business Group.
Vawdrey will fill the spot vacated by Richard Christou who resigned his post to serve as a corporate executive adviser in the company's Global Affairs business.
While a replacement can be found for Australia, EMC Software, AT&T, Telstra and Kaz veteran Mike Foster will take the reins of Fujitsu Australia, alongside his current role as group executive director of sales and business development for Australia-New Zealand.
ZDNet Australia asked Fujitsu today if there was a view to make Foster's appointment to the Australian head role permanent; however, the company offered no comment.
Foster came on board with Fujitsu after the company bought Telstra's Kaz business group for $200 million back in 2009, taking the helm of sales operations across Australia-New Zealand.
Foster told ZDNet Australia post-integration that his coming on board with Fujitsu was the result of a "good deal" between both parties.
