Lisa Fortey has been promoted to the newly created role of national sales manager.

Fortey will lead her team with a new sales structure in place aimed at accelerating our growth and the success of our customers.

She joined Logicalis Australia nearly eight years ago and brings over 20 years of sales and leadership experience to the new role. She has spent the last two and half years at Logicalis successfully leading the Victorian sales team and has been instrumental in redesigning the new national sales team structure.

The new sales structure will see the formation of industry vertical teams, each headed by a national sector lead.

This is to leverage the company's expertise and achievements, especially in the public, education and healthcare sectors, with teams also focused on the commercial and enterprise markets.

Playing pivotal roles in this new structure will also be the sales operations and customer success practice, which now reports directly to the national sales manager, along with the strategic partner and alliances team.

"Through the establishment of industry focused sales teams, our talented team is better positioned to meet the increasing challenges our customers face and seize opportunities that come with taking a cloud-first approach," Fortey says.

"It also means we are better aligned with our strategic partners, and I believe it showcases our expertise and experience to the market.

"I could not be more excited to work with our brilliant team in helping our customers architect the change they need in their business," Fortey adds.

"Lisa's leadership experience and customer focus, along with her strong vendor relationships is why she is considered a trusted advisor in our industry," Logicalis Australia CEO Anthony Woodward says.

"The new sales team structure under Lisa's leadership is well positioned to continue to help our customers accelerate their digital-first aspirations and meet our ambitious growth targets."
