Mr McGee joined Hitachi Data Systems in 2006 and has held a number of senior sales and solutions roles with the company, supporting customers in various sectors including government, banking, mining, manufacturing and insurance.
"We are increasingly focusing on providing our customers with continuous cloud infrastructure that enables a non-disruptive shift to a new model of pay-per-use computing," he said.
Mr McGee's predecessor, Adrian De Luca, was promoted to the role of Asia-Pacific CTO last year.
