Software vendor Flexera has promoted its Asia Pacific (APAC) alliances manager Steve Shaw to be its first country manager for Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).
In the role, Shaw will manage the growth of the company across A/NZ through direct and channel sales and will report to Ken Horner, the vendor's global chief revenue officer.
ARN understands that Flexera has previously had sales managers in Australia, but not a country manager until now.
“Organisations are looking to transform and unlock the full value of their IT estates. Flexera is in a unique position to help them do exactly that,” said Shaw.
“I’ve spent more than two decades at technology companies in APAC, including Telstra and Oracle, and understand the complexities of today’s IT environments.
“I’m very excited about the opportunity to help our partners and customers manage hybrid IT estates and drive digital transformation through Flexera One.”
Shaw joined Flexera in 2019 as APAC alliances manager. In addition to his time at Telstra and Oracle, Shaw has also worked at Crayon, Cloud9+9, 8x8, Avaya, LexisNexis, GTECH, icon Communications and Worldcom.
Flexera recently held its annual awards with New Zealand ICT services giant Datacom becoming one of three partners to claim APAC region partner of the year due to its recent wins and customer engagement with complex government and healthcare organisations.
