Dicker Data NZ growth continues with Aerohive deal
Today wireless vendor Aerohive announced it has appointed Dicker Data as a distribution partner in New Zealand. The appointment will leverage the networking capabilities and reach of Dicker Data to grow Aerohive’s business in the local market.
Rhys Taylor, Aerohive NZ country manager, says, “Dicker Data completes Aerohive’s partner channel in New Zealand. We have grown a great deal over the last couple of years but feel we still have plenty more to achieve. Dicker Data’s partnership is key to us achieving this.”
In addition to logistics, Dicker Data NZ will provide marketing and partner enablement services to drive reach and sales for the NZ partners.
Phil Presnall, Dicker Data NZ general manager of sales and marketing, says, “Aerohive is a perfect fit for our organisation, we have strong networking expertise, and with our focus on cloud. Aerohive also aligns strongly there. We are very excited about the growth opportunity this provides.
Aerohive products will be in stock and ready to ship from early September from Dicker Data New Zealand.
With a cloud management approach and innovative hive structure for access points to communicate with each other, the brand has been highly successful in New Zealand schools. The focus for the vendor seems to now be on turning that success into a wider commercial & enterprise success.
As well as being NZ country manager, Taylor is currently caretaking the Regional Sales Director role for Aerohive in ANZA.
