Jabra has hired a new managing director with a ‘proven track record’ for the Australia and New Zealand region.

Based in Sydney, David Piggott will be responsible for managing the company’s market presence in Australia and New Zealand, overseeing new revenue opportunities, and driving customer and partner relationships.

Piggott joins Jabra with more than 20 years’ experience in the IT industry. He has held senior executive global roles within the sales and channel organisations at Cisco, Avaya, Telstra and Touchbase.

Most recently, Piggott worked at Cisco for four years where he was regional manager – service provider sales, and had responsibility for growing the business year on year.

According to Jabra, his achievements included successfully building the regional cloud strategy with SingTel Optus across their collaboration and IaaS offerings.  

Prior to this, Piggott worked for more than three years at Avaya as global account director. In this role he delivered unified communications and contact centre technical and commercial solutions for key global accounts across Australia and New Zealand.

Other senior roles have included contact centre sales specialist with Telstra Enterprise and Government, and business development management roles at Touchbase in both Australia and the UK.  

“We’re very excited to welcome David to Jabra and believe that with his knowledge and skills with customers and channels, he will continue to drive success with our audio solutions,” says Mark Leigh, Jabra president APAC.  

“He has a proven track record in sales and business development within the IT, networking and customer contact industry, and will be a real asset to Jabra as we grow our business in Australia and New Zealand."
