Websense, the specialist in cyber attacks and data theft, is strengthening its position in Australia and New Zealand with the appointment of John Roxburgh as new territory manager.

Based in Auckland, New Zealand, Roxburgh is responsible for increasing Websense’s footprint in New Zealand, with a focus on generating new business with local mid-market and enterprise customers.

He will also take the helm of Websense’s partner programme, working with new and existing partners to increase their profitability, and manage the company’s relationship with Avnet - Websense’s exclusive distributor in New Zealand.

Roxburgh joins Websense with over 18 years’ experience in IT business development, most recently having served as business development manager at Westcon Group. In this role he looked after EMC for more than seven years.

At Westcon he was responsible for driving new business, retaining existing customers and developing the company's partner ecosystem.

“New Zealand is a growing market for Websense and I’m looking forward to working with our partners and customers to offer IT security solutions that enable local businesses to better manage risk and protect themselves from a variety of emerging threats,” says Roxburgh.
