Citrix on hunt for new local channel boss as Belinda Jurisic departs

09 Mar 17

Citrix is on the hunt for a new local channel manager as churn in the industry continues with Belinda Jurisic the latest vendor channel boss to move on.

Jurisic, who has been Citrix’s ANZ channel sales manager for nearly four years, will leave Citrix at the end of this month ‘to pursue other opportunities’.

Citrix says it is actively backfilling the role ‘as it is a critical platform to Citrix Australia and New Zealand’s success and growth’.

“Citrix remains committed to our partners and the ANZ market and will ensure a smooth transition, working closely with our customers and partners to ensure there is no impact to the business,” the vendor says.

It thanked Jurisic for her contributions to the business.

During her time with the company, Jurisic has pushed strongly for channel partners to get involved more in the midmarket. Last year she told ChannelLife she saw it as a space where leverage with partners was at its greatest.

“It is where our partners really have the ability to lead the sale… by leveraging their own services that they are offering out to their customers,” Jurisic said.

Prior to her role at Citrix, Jurisic was channel sales director for Hewlett-Packard.
