30 Sep 13

Wynyard Group continues to expand its global workforce and footprint, with a number of key strategic appointments in Australia, US, UK and Asia.

As part of its global growth plan, the security software provider has doubled its global sales force this year as it aggressively executes a plan to deliver on key growth and customer service milestones.

This latest recruitment round sees Wynyard bolstering its global Government and Financial Services sales capability with six senior sales appointments.

In Australia, the company has appointed Barney Mulcare, who has a 30 history of delivering technology solutions to government agencies, joining the team as Sales Director Government.

Wynyard has also appointed ex-law enforcement advisor Mike Cavanagh to manage growth opportunities in Asia. Cavanagh has been appointed Sales Director for Asia and will be based in Bangkok, close to Wynyard’s law enforcement customer base in the region.

Wynyard Managing Director, Craig Richardson, says the sales team had been recruited from the ranks of well-known, multi-national software and services companies bringing strong industry experience and networks across a Wynyard’s target government, financial services and critical infrastructure markets.

“We are delighted that such a high calibre and well-respected group of people have chosen to lead Wynyard Group’s growth," he says.

“Wynyard has attracted some of the world’s leading industry experts, data scientists and software engineers and we are pleased to have such great new talent join us to help execute our growth plan, expand our customer base and deliver exceptional customer service.”

Richardson says the company has a clear four-step global growth plan focused on expanding its customer base through rapid innovation, extending its global direct sales and partner distribution network and leveraging its specialisation in crime science.

Other appointments:

In the US, Wynyard has made three key appointments. Kyle Lamborn has been appointed Director of Federal and State Programs based in Washington DC, while Tim Rush and Mark Kusiak have been recruited as Sales Directors for the West Coast and Mid-West respectively.

In the United Kingdom, Wynyard has also recruited Stephen Gorman as Sales Director Government.
