Australia-based Avalanche Technology Group, best known as parent of the company that distributes the AVG security software brand in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, has appointed a Chief Technology Officer as it looks to expand its portfolio of technology partnerships.

In the newly-created role, Kevin Yank, former CTO of online media company SitePoint, will be responsible for identifying and evaluating technology and business opportunities, as well as taking ownership of the group’s internal systems.

In addition to his experience, Yank will bring his skills as an author, speaker and trainer, having written one book on web development and co-written to more. 

Peter Cameron, Avalanche CEO, says the company is looking to repeat its success with its AVG division.

"Kevin’s appointment, with his expertise and commitment, will ensure we have the right team to provide outstanding technology solutions for the Australian, New Zealand and regional marketplaces,” Cameron says.
