Barracuda appoints Andrew Huntley to lead APAC sales

21 Jun 18

Cloud-enabled security and data protection solutions provider Barracuda Networks has announced the appointment of Andrew Huntley as regional sales director for A/NZ and Pacific Islands.

Based in Brisbane, Huntley is responsible for building on Barracuda’s sales momentum across the region, which is the result of the success of its channel program in attracting the highest calibre partners and a growing list of customers that are adopting the company’s cloud solutions.

“The Pacific region is an important market for Barracuda as we continue to extend our position as a cloud security and data protection solution provider,” says Barracuda Networks Asia Pacific Sales vice president James Forbes-May.

“Andrew’s demonstrated leadership, sales and channel skills naturally align with Barracuda’s commitment to helping customers use cloud innovation to safeguard their networks, data and applications.”

With more than 22 years of business development and channel experience, Huntley first joined Barracuda in May 2017 as territory account manager.

Huntley’s channel and customer knowledge of the A/NZ and Pacific Islands markets are second to none and was the natural choice to lead and drive the region’s growth and delivery, which has for the past 14 months been focused around partner recruitment, development and enablement.

Huntley joined Barracuda from Arcserve, where he spent over three years as a partner account manager for ANZ and the Pacific Islands.

Prior to that, Huntley spent more than nine years as a channel account manager for Datastor Australia.

“As cybersecurity and data protection increasingly gain traction with businesses in the Pacific region, cloud computing is becoming the clear way forward,” says Huntley.

“We’re committed to working with our partners and customers in the best possible way to empower them to have advanced protection without impacting their day-to-day operations.”
