Milionis joins Zscaler with more than 25 years of experience working in the enterprise IT, telecommunications, and consulting sectors across business development, channel partner enablement, and sales management programs.
"We are delighted to have John heading our ANZ channel partner community at this time. His extensive experience in sales, consulting, and channel development, will continue to drive our escalating growth," Zscaler head of alliance and channels APJ, Foad Farrokhnia, says.
"He also has terrific skills from his experience at several dynamic, growing companies where he was instrumental in scaling their channel partner network from the startup phase all the way through to regional expansion, Farrokhnia adds.
