Jabra has appointed Jessica Schmid as ANZ Channel manager in a newly created role within the company.

The headset and speakerphone vendor says the position will help exploit the rise of the mobile worker, with Schmid responsible for Jabra’s partner system and customers following her move from Ethan Group.

Schmid comes to the role with experience in sales development and management of Ethan’s strategic customers, including government, while performing key assistance in the ecommerce rollout of Ethan’s website and product solution offerings.

“It is a particularly exciting time for Jabra,” says Fulvio Toniotti, managing director Jabra ANZ.

“With the rise of the mobile worker, businesses are encouraging BYOD and there are new opportunities for Jabra’s product range.

“With our new channel manager and the ongoing sales initiatives, we are uniquely placed to meet the diverse needs of ANZ businesses in unified communications and contact centre solutions.”
