New in Auckland

01 Mar 08

StorageCraft, a rapidly growing provider of disk-based backup, disaster recovery, system migration, data protection, and security solutions has recently appointed a NZ Country Manager to head its new Auckland office.
Felix Tsang will head the NZ office of a company that 18 months ago was unheard of in Asia Pacific.  Asia Pacific Regional Manager, Greg Wyman, said that when he joined the company 15-16 months ago, no one in the Asia Pacific region had even heard of StorageCraft, and there were neither partners nor customers.  In that seemingly brief time, StorageCraft’s Asia Pacific business has grown to justify a dedicated NZ Country Manager, and the company hopes to expand to Wellington in the coming months, with channel managers and technical staff in both cities. 
Both Tsang and Wyman see huge opportunities for reseller partners in New Zealand, as the company’s market share has climbed from zero to nearly double digits in little over a year.  Currently, over 200 resellers are making up to 50% margin on StorageCraft products in New Zealand.  Tsang encourages any resellers hoping to learn more to contact him directly at felix.tsang@storagecraft.com.au.
