New senior role at Symantec

06 Mar 2012

The New Zealand branch of Symantec will have its own country manager from April 1, replacing the previous national sales manager role, the company has announced.

Five-year Symantec veteran Lucas Salter has been appointed to the role, and will be relocating from his current residence in Western Australia to Auckland over the coming weeks. Former national sales manager, Stuart Preston, will remain with the company as an account director.

Craig Scroggie, VP & managing director, Pacific region for Symantec, says Salter’s selection is part of his advancement through Symantec’s management development programme.

Salter was one of three internal candidates, and in the end it came down to his experience in Western Australia matching what he was likely to face in New Zealand.

"The market dynamics here are pretty similar to the types of places he’s had success,” Scroggie says.

"People in Western Australia don’t want to do business with you unless you’re set up there and they know you’re going to stick around, and it’s the same here.”

Preston remains an important part of the team, Scroggie adds, working with high-value enterprise and government clients in Wellington.

The changes aren’t official until April 1, but in the meantime you can check out Salter’s LinkedIn profile here.
