Cisco's NZ partner team takes shape

24 Aug 10

Last week we reported that Cisco’s commercial business in Asia Pacific had shown some of the fastest growth across the company in the recent years and that by placing an increasing focus on channel relationships, the firm sensed continued growth.

When contacted by The Channel, Suzanne Hansen said that her new role “is directly connected” to the APAC changes. She will now head up a new commercial and partner marketing outfit.

Other changes to the firm’s operations are more related to Cisco’s expansion throughout New Zealand.

Hansen confirmed that Kevin Sullivan has been promoted to South Island Business Manager while Charles Odlin steps up to Virtualisation Product Specialist for the data centre market. Raig Kleinhans and Chris West have been named System Engineers and Matt Taylor has been hired as Service Provider Account Manager. Kevin O’Connor was also named as Account Manager.
