VM Ware steps up Wellington operation

04 Aug 10

New Zealand Regional Manager Tim Dacombe-Bird has said that the company’s new Wellington office will allow for increased growth as the firm’s investment in New Zealand continues.

“We are moving from our existing serviced office to a new VMware office due to the growth of the New Zealand team,” said Dacombe-Bird. “We have a number of functions previously delivered out of our Australian offices that we are now at a scale to deploy locally.

Professional Services, Inside Sales and increased Technical Account Management resources are being deployed locally to give better service levels. “In additional we are expanding our Enterprise Account Management team in Wellington to better manage customer and partner relationships,” added Dacombe-Bird.

The company’s new Wellington office will have presentation and demonstration facilities.

“We expect this growth to continue specifically around our Virtual Desktop and Private Cloud solutions, enabling our existing customers to get increased value from their VMware investments,” Dacombe-Bird continued. “We also expect growth around our acquisition products such as the IONIX management tools, rebranded as VMware Enterprise Management.”

Recent additions to the team are:

Michael Webster, Professional Services Consultant
David Morahan, Systems Engineer
Adam Saunders, Inside Account Representative
Patrick Hanley, Technical Account Manager

Terry Love, Enterprise Account Manager, will join the company this month to manage a number of Wellington-based accounts. He joins from Citrix and previously Sun.
