Kaseya names new APAC leaders increase channel engagement

29 Jan 15

Cloud-based IT management software provider Kaseya has announced two new appointments to its APAC business.

The company named Kellie Hackney to the role of APAC sales director, and appointed Craig Allen as technical director for APAC, with both roles effective immediately.

The company says this latest pair of leadership appointments demonstrates Kaseya’s continued commitment to growing a strong APAC channel business, one the company says will be uniquely structured compared to other vendors in the space with Kaseya field teams strategically aligned to support Kaseya resellers.

“I’m energised and excited to be moving into this new role and to have the opportunity to drive further success for Kaseya,” says Hackney.

“Kaseya continues to strengthen its position as the leading provider of cloud-based IT management software with both product innovation and a strong customer focus.

“I will continue to use those strengths to increase our channel engagement and grow our customer-base in APAC.”

Kaseya says Hackney brings a wealth of experience and insight into APAC channels.

Prior to joining Kaseya at the end of last year, she served for eight-years as the senior manager for partner management with Citrix Asia-Pacific. Prior to that, she held various roles over eight years with Express Data, including IBM business manager.

In his role as technical director, Kaseya says Allen will continue to strengthen the effectiveness of both pre and post sales technical teams and build upon his strong record of success in delivering on the business objectives of Kaseya’s customers and partners.

Prior to joining Kaseya, Allen served as chief information officer at itLab, where he had operational oversight of systems performance and was responsible for improving technical efficiencies across the business. 

“I’m looking forward to continuing the development of Kaseya’s professional services offerings and boosting our product training and consultancy projects to meet the varied needs of our clients across Asia-Pacific.” Allen says.

Commenting on the announcement, Kaseya’s vice president of sales for APAC, Spencer Young says, “I’m very excited to have both Craig and Kellie in these critically important leadership roles.

“Their insight and industry experience will help further drive success and recognition for Kaseya in our APAC markets.
