M-Files Corporation has appointed Kevin Leong as channel account manager for Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) regions.

In this role, Leong will help accelerate the growth of the company's intelligent information management software solutions in ANZ.

Leong will continue to build the M-Files brand in the region by working with channel partners to provide simplified and streamlined intelligent information management solutions to their customers.

This includes identifying and recruiting new partners, and working with existing partners to provide them with training and sales and solution expertise.

Leong's 12 years of experience consists of sales and technical support, including troubleshooting and solutions.

Prior to joining M-Files, Kevin was a solutions consultant at Konica Minolta Australia, where he provided a range of technology solutions to customers across IT, supply chain, human resources, finance, and procurement.

He started his career in technical support for Mercy Health before joining the service desk at Healthscope. He then went on to become network and systems administrator for MEGT Australia Ltd.

M-Files alliance and partner manager ANZ Chris Smith says, “Kevin Leong brings both sales and technical experience to the role, which gives him a unique perspective on understanding business problems as well as how to apply technology to address them.

"This means he can provide valuable insights to channel partners in creating solutions for customers that meet their needs. M-Files is always looking to add value and expertise to the local team with roles in the technical and sales arenas.

On his appointment, Leong says, “M-Files is recognised as a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant and has a lot of growth potential in the region.

"I look forward to being a part of this growth by driving deeper engagement with partners and leveraging new opportunities. Particularly with COVID-19, there are many more organisations looking at ways to intelligently manage their information.

"This includes industries such as professional services. M-Files and its partners are in a unique position to help them address this need.

M-Files offers AI-powered intelligent information management solutions to connect all documents and information, across every platform and repository, then analyses them to place them in context.

This makes it possible to serve up the right information to the right people right when they need it, and automate information-driven business processes, while maintaining complete control and compliance, the company states.

Many organisations in more than 100 countries (including NBC Universal, OMV, SAS Institute, and ThyssenKrupp) use M-Files to manage their business information and processes.
