Cloudian announced several new regional appointments, including Evan Duryea as channel director for Australia and New Zealand, ASEAN and Oceania, as the company steps up its regional expansion.
Based in Melbourne, Duryea brings more than 20 years of experience to the role.
"I've known the regional Cloudian team a long time and have been following their success in driving Cloudian and its partner presence in the region," Duryea says.
"Cloudian doesn't just lead in its own right; it's fast become an integral part of other major technology solutions through its alliance partnership network. That provides huge value to the channel as it fits into the bigger picture of what they're looking to position and sell to customers.
"I've sat on the other side of the channel table for decades, and I've seen the good and bad of how vendors approach and work with the channel. Partner experience is too often missing from vendor channel managers' CVs, and I'm looking forward to leveraging it for my role and expanding Cloudian's channel presence and depth across the region."
The data management company has also appointed Sydney-based Anna Christensen as ANZ and ASEAN head of marketing and Sydney-based Norman Joe as ANZ regional sales manager. Christensen brings extensive marketing experience, including roles at IT distributors NEXTGEN and Exclusive Networks, while Joe joins from Commvault and has considerable prior experience from a range of roles at Dicker Data and IBM.
"The depth of IT and channel experience Evan, Anna, and Norman bring to the table will be a catalyst for Cloudian and its partners' continued growth and success in the region as we work to meet customers' evolving data management and protection needs. We'll also continue our recruitment drive across the region over the next year," Cloudian ANZ, ASEAN, and Oceania regional director James Wright says.
