Cloud content management provider Box has appointed a regional leader for Australia and New Zealand, with former Pegasystems managing director Scott Leader to take up the role.

Box, which has a physical presence in ANZ with offices in Sydney and Melbourne, announced the appointment of enterprise veteran Leader as regional vice-president of Australia and New Zealand, and says the company will be better placed than ever to expand into ANZ and accelerate its international growth.

“We are on a fast trajectory and we’ve seen great opportunities to grow our business in overseas markets,” said Box chief operating officer Stephanie Carullo.

“We’ve appointed an ANZ leader to help us capture the enterprise market as it transitions to a digital workplace. Scott is a seasoned enterprise veteran, and I’m thrilled he’s joined Box to help us maximise our opportunity in an exciting new territory.”

Leader has more than 25 years of experience in revenue and growth roles across finance and software at companies such as Reuters, Bloomberg, Australian Securities Exchange, NYSE Euronext and SunGard.

Prior to joining Box, he held the role of managing director of ANZ at Pegasystems for four years, where he was responsible for directing the revenue and growth strategy for the ANZ region.

“I’ve watched Box grow in the US, across Europe, Japan and Canada, and there’s a huge opportunity to build the business in ANZ,” said Leader.

“I’m thrilled to join Box at this exciting time, and I’m looking forward to helping to bring the power of its cloud content management capabilities to enterprises across Australia and New Zealand.”
