Aruba Networks has officially announced its new South Pacific channel leader Tristan Rajah, who takes over the role effective immediately.

Rajah will be based in the company's Sydney office and will report to Aruba South Pacific director Pat Devlin.

“I am very proud and excited to begin this next chapter with Aruba. Over the past decade, I have had the chance to work alongside some of our industry's best minds across our partner and customer community,” says Rajah.

“I look forward to hitting the ground running, speaking with new and existing partners on how we can make business easier for them, as well as broadening the resources and solutions on offer to our partners.

Rajah has been working with Aruba for more than 10 years, moving up the ranks from graduate to sales and territory development. He was promoted to channel lead from his position as mid-market sales manager, where he led the team to build a strong business pipeline and with Aruba customers.

Rajah will now lead the company's channel strategy to deliver value to Aruba partners and end users, and to grow the channel community across the South Pacific, Australia and New Zealand.

The company continues to develop its Edge Services Platform, an AI-powered and cloud-native platform that automates and protects the edge. Rajah will be key to developing Aruba's network innovation for its partners, particularly those interested in managed service capabilities.

Pat Devlin says that Rajah has been a longstanding member of the Aruba family and has demonstrated his expertise throughout his career.

“I love the fact that Aruba is one of those rare places where people can come and grow a career, and Tristan is a great example of this.

“Having moved from strength to strength, I am confident Tristan will thrive in his new position. Most importantly, I am looking forward to the energy, engagement and enthusiasm he will bring to our partner community,” adds Devlin.

Aruba ANZ former channel sales manager Deke Rayner-Harvey has joined Aruba's parent company HPE in a new role.

“We congratulate Deke on his new position and are delighted he remains part of the HPE family. Deke's contribution to Aruba over the past five years as SMB and channel sales manager is unparalleled and we wish him every success in his new role,” concludes Devlin.
