Brocade has opened a Canberra-based office dedicated to federal business and supporting Brocade’s Federal Government business.

Several new positions have also been filled in both the Sydney and Canberra offices across IP sales, technical support, account and channel management.

Brocade is also on the lookout for an additional four people in the coming quarter in positions such as Application Delivery Products Sales, Application Delivery Products Systems Engineering, Regional Sales Manager and Strategic Account Manager.

New appointments include Adam Doyle (Pre Sales, IP, Federal Government), Pat Devlin (Enterprise Sales, IP, NSW), Chris Bull (Service Provider, Australia and New Zealand), Christian Navarette (Channel Manager, Volume, Australia and New Zealand), Jason Finlayson (Channel Manager, Value, Australia and New Zealand), Ben Stewart (Technical Support Engineer, IP) and Bernie Parczyk (Support Account Manager, Australia and New Zealand).

Existing Brocade employees Mick Slack and Trevor Jones will move to newly created roles taking responsibility at Brocade for Hewlett-Packard ES across Asia Pacific.

Graham Schultz, Brocade’s Regional Director - Australia & New Zealand, said: "We are delighted with the growth of Brocade in Australia. We have seen a strong increase in IP related customer enquiries following our recent Brocade One announcement and the newly expanded team will help us meet demand.

"Federal Government business is an important focus for us and the addition of the new Canberra based office is a significant step in the right direction for Brocade’s federal business,” Schultz added.

Brocade recently signed up Connector Systems as an Alliance Partner Network distributor for its IP infrastructure products in New Zealand.
