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.
