Software vendor Flexera has promoted seven-year company executive Hugh Darval as director of Australia and New Zealand.

Darval previously held the position of major account manager, director & manager of Asia Pacific (APAC) Telebusiness & Alliances, and APAC Channel Alliances Manager.

Prior to Flexera, Darvall worked in Channel Sales at Quintiq, where he focused on backend systems, analysed large amounts of data and monitored events, and he also worked at CMO Global as well as being account manager for Expo Hire.

“Flexera thrives in Australia and New Zealand with Hugh at the realm,” said Vincent Smyth, senior vice-president of Worldwide Sales at Flexera.  

“His industry experience, proven track record and can-do attitude fits right in with our entrepreneurial culture – where technology professionals thrive and individual contributions really count. Hugh’s candour and passion to keep score is a great asset and enables his team to meet and exceed goals, objectives and commitments to our employees, customers and partners. I congratulate Hugh and look forward to working with him more closely in his new role.”

“As the leading global player within the software supply chain, Flexera has always been a fantastic place to work,” said Darvall.

“Since joining the company, I’ve been able to work with Australia and New Zealand’s software developer communities, as well as some of ANZ’s leading businesses to develop solutions that fix the dysfunctional software supply chain. I am excited to take on this new challenge and look forward to working with my team to continue the growth we’ve achieved in ANZ.”
