Polycom ANZ has appointed two new channel directors to help drive growth and distribution initiatives, furthering the company's goal of creating the 'workplace of the future' for all customers.

Industry veteran Tina Bandilovski has been promoted to channel director ANZ. She will work on strategy and execution for the ANZ channel and Telstra business.

She brings more than two decades of experience in the channel and Australian ICT industry, including seven years at Polycom. Prior to working at Polycom, she held the business operations manager position, Telstra Conferencing and Collaboration.

Mark Braxton will take the role as Polycom's distribution director ANZ. Braxton will commit to the 'critical' task of managing the company's distribution strategy for the short and longer term. Braxton has fifteen years experience in the tech industry. He joined Polycom in 2008.

“Polycom prides itself on building strong partner relationships and Tina will continue to harness our partner base across the region, building on Mark Braxton’s work over the past couple of years. Tina will work closely with partners to deliver the best in-market solutions that not only add value but provide measurable results for our customers,” comments Tony Simonsen, Polycom ANZ managing director.

“Our distributors will play an important role in the future success of Polycom across ANZ. I’m confident that Mark will ensure we have the right growth strategy in place to meet and exceed their needs in the unified communication arena," Simonsen concludes.
