Red Hat has promoted Enzo Compagnoni to Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) Regional Vice President and General Manager.

In his new role, Compagnoni will be responsible for leading the Red Hat business in ANZ, helping to drive the digital transformation success of customers and partners across the region.

Compagnoni has over 25 years of experience in the enterprise IT industry under his belt and has been with Red Hat for more than six years, most recently as ANZ Senior Director for Enterprise Sales, ANZ.

Prior to Red Hat, he has held various leadership roles in technology companies, including EMC, PeopleSoft and PTC.

“One of the reasons why I joined Red Hat six and a half years ago was the company's openness and transparency, a natural trait for a business built around open source software,” Compagnoni says.

“I felt as though I could turn up to work and be exactly who I am, which is an important factor for someone who values authenticity.

“As we continue to grow as a business, I will work to help bring different parts of the business closer together.

“It is my goal to create a fully aligned team so that we continue to be crystal clear on Red Hat’s mission in ANZ of providing industry-leading enterprise open source products and services to our customers.

“I’m also looking forward to engaging with customers from different industries, and of course, with our strong ecosystem of partners.

“From an internal perspective, I'm here to serve the teams across ANZ, not the other way around. The new role I’m stepping into affords me the tools, resources and visibility to become a cheerleader for the local team.

“As I become more involved in Red Hat’s broader business across Asia Pacific, I’m looking forward to becoming an outspoken advocate of the business and associates in ANZ.”
