Application performance infrastructure vendor Riverbed Technologies has today announced the appointment of former Females in IT chair, Terrie Anderson, as regional sales director for Australia and New Zealand.
Ian Raper, regional vice president, says the position was a new role, which reflected Riverbed’s ongoing success throughout Australia and New Zealand. He says the company had experienced a number of major client wins across both countries which was underscored by the expansion of Riverbed’s Australian headquarters, relocating from North Sydney to larger offices in the heart of Sydney late last year.
Riverbed’s Australian distributors are Distribution Central and M Tech, and Westcon NZ in New Zealand.
Anderson has more than 20 years’ experience in the IT industry with companies including Symantec, RSA and Cisco. Most recently, Anderson held the role of vice president Asia Pacific sales for software authentication platform, Entrust.
“Terrie’s extensive experience in both the development and leadership of global sales teams will be invaluable as more companies turn to us to help them take advantage of the benefits the hybrid enterprise has to offer,” Raper says. “She is extremely well respected in both the Australian and New Zealand IT industries and will play a pivotal role as we continue build on our recent successes.”
