Exclusive: SnapperNet eyes trans-Tasman venture

01 Apr 10

Director Richard Paul has told The Channel that the New Zealand-based distributor has its sights set on Australia.

Speaking to The Channel about how the firm’s first quarter is already ahead of expectations, director Richard Paul hinted that SnapperNet is looking at a trans-Tasman venture later this year.

He said, “Aside from having a more focused team and getting some product specialists on board, we have an opportunity with one of our vendors to go into Australia but that’s something we’ll know more about by May."

SnapperNet is also looking to take on new staff. “We’re going to start looking for some new talent to look after a specific area within our business,” Paul explained. “It’ll be someone to look after the UTM firewall, security space or someone to look after the voice over IP space. Or someone to manage our level one brand business."
