EMC ANZ boss to lead South East Asia

02 Nov 10

David Webster, currently the President of EMC Australia New Zealand, will take up the senior leadership role for EMC South East Asia as well as looking after the EMC business in ANZ.

Webster will now be responsible for driving strategic growth across both the ANZ and SEA regions.

Each of the ANZ and SEA regions will have its own management team under, overseen by Webster.

Steve Leonard, President, EMC Asia Pacific & Japan, said, “David's success in building a healthy long-term foundation of growth for EMC in ANZ, together with his experiences in Asia earlier in his career, makes him the ideal candidate to build upon the great portfolio of businesses we have today in South East Asia.”

Based in Sydney, Webster will continue reporting directly to Leonard.
