Former CA, IBM and Telstra exec Chris Gibbs has been appointed MD of BMC Software in Australia/NZ to lead ‘all aspects of building a strong competitive position for BMC.’

Reporting to BMC Asia Pacific President Gavin Selkirk, Chris Gibbs' appointment as new A/NZ MD follows BMC’s recent Exchange user conference, where the company unveiled its Digital Enterprise Management strategy – a set of IT solutions designed to help organisations make the transition to a digital business, from mainframe to mobile to cloud and beyond.

BMC APAC President Selkirk said: “Chris has more than 25 years’ experience in IT sales and sales management, which makes him the ideal person to lead one of BMC’s most important markets in the Asia Pacific region.

“As we continue on our high growth trajectory in ANZ, where many of our customers are transforming into digital businesses, building a strong competitive position for BMC with our new digital enterprise strategy will require strong leadership and an unwavering strategic focus.”

Gibbs said: "I'm pleased to be joining BMC at what is an exciting time in the company’s history following its move to private ownership. The newly-unveiled Digital Enterprise Management strategy is attracting a lot of attention and has been designed to help our customers modernise, digitalise and transform their existing technology – this positions BMC as an industry role model with a strong competitive advantage."
