Just two months into the job, recently-appointed ANZ channel director for Citrix, Neville James, has signalled his intentions to foster growth in this country, appointing an experienced partnership manager to the role of channels development manager, New Zealand.

Hamish McNee comes to the role following two years as New Zealand country manager for Avaya. Prior to that he spent 10 years working for Nortel across roles such as country manager New Zealand – enterprise, channels & partner manager New Zealand, and Vodafone ANZ account director.

James says McNee will be responsible for driving capability and engagement with key channels in this country, as well as managing the relationship between Citrix and Microsoft.

"Hamish is well known in the New Zealand channel space,” James says, "and we are confident of his ability to use his wealth of experience to benefit our channel partners and customers.”
