Fresh from an alleged New Zealand operations restructure last month, Allied Telesis has promoted Scott Penno to APAC marketing director.
The networking and wireless vendor says Penno will be responsible for managing brand awareness, supporting partner and alliance marketing while working closely with sales teams across the region.
“We are delighted to promote Scott Penno into this newly create regional role," says Jakub Duch, MD of APAC Sales, Allied Telesis.
"He has the unique industry experience and market understanding to help drive our business forward in key markets.
"As companies in all markets grapple with network convergence challenges, Scott’s recent experience is highly prized and we look forward to him launching marketing programs that will enable us to strategically engage with our customers and partners."
After originally joining the company in 2003, Penno was appointed Australia Country manager in 2007 during which time he has delivered consistent revenue growth in high profile public and private organisations across the education, health, hospitality, government and supply chain markets.
Penno has previously worked with a number of systems integrators, including GPM Internet, KNX Asia Pacific and Gennex Consulting with a specific focus on communications and security-related technologies.
