Extreme Networks lures Owens from Oracle

Extreme Networks has appointed James Owens, formerly Sales Director Asia-Pacific for Oracle Corporation, as Regional Director Australia and New Zealand.

His objectives include the rapid expansion of business in New Zealand through providing channels partners with leads, marketing backup and technical support.

Owens says: “The networking community likes the direction in which Extreme Networks is evolving its Ethernet switch technology, which is already delivering tomorrow’s networks today. We are taking networks from the physical, to virtual to cloud.

“This helped to lure me from Oracle, as did the company’s value proposition around ‘aware’ networks, where I see a substantial upside for Extreme Networks. Flexibility of action was another attraction, as freedom from the constraints of a large corporation allows me to be flexible with our messaging to the marketplace.”

Before joining Oracle in 2007, Owens was Director – Sales Consultant for Cincom Systems. His experience in information technology sales spans 20 years.
