Reactivating Techday's presence in the channel space

30 Nov 17

Techday, like any business, is constantly evolving.

Thanks to that evolution, I now have the privilege of introducing myself as Techday’s new ChannelLife Australia and ChannelLife New Zealand editor. Perhaps you have seen my name and face popping up on some of the latest articles.

I am truly excited to be a part of this incredible team and to have the opportunity to research, wrangle and write news about the A/NZ channel.

I have always had a keen interest in technology, from gadgets to systems, and perhaps it says something about me that I very much look forward to learning all about the solutions and services that exist to support the distribution of consumer tech.

One of my main priorities, aside from ensuring the continued quality of ChannelLife content, will be getting out to events so I can become thoroughly familiar with this vast field.

If you happen to see me out and about, exploring what the channel has to offer, don’t hesitate to shake my hand and introduce yourself - I sincerely would like to meet you and learn about what you do.

You can find a short profile about me on Techday’s ‘Meet the Team’ page and learn a little more by adding me on LinkedIn.

If you want to get in touch with me directly you can email me at benm@techday.com or call me on +64 9 973 5964.

Don’t forget to keep up to date with channel news by signing up the ChannelLife newsletter for Australia or New Zealand or by following @ChannelLifeNZ or @ChannelLifeAU on Twitter.

I am excited to become an active and contributing member of the channel community in Australia and New Zealand and intend to make ChannelLife your go-to for all your channel news.
