Based in Sydney, Buckley is reporting to Colin Brookes, senior vice president of Sales and Services for Asia Pacific and Japan.
Buckley succeeds Erin Butler in the role, with Butler returning home to the United States to pursue a new opportunity as Customer Success for the Americas East region with Citrix.
Citrix says Buckley will be responsible for “driving Citrix’s 2020 ambitions to boost employee experiences through intelligent workspaces, and delivering consistent growth across all sectors in both markets”.
Prior to joining Citrix, Buckley previously held senior operational and sales positions at Riverbed, McAfee, Symantec and Dell.
Commenting on Buckley’s appointment, Colin Brookes said: “As a business, we strive to support organisations in Australia and New Zealand to stamp out workplace complexity and unlock employee productivity and creativity. I am confident in Keith’s leadership to help Citrix achieve these ambitions and we’re delighted to have him on board”.
“We also thank Erin Butler for the leadership and passion she has brought to the Australian and New Zealand team over the past 12 months. We will always find ways to keep great talent within Citrix and we wish her all the best as she returns home to a new role with us.”
“I am thrilled to join Citrix at a time when traditional approaches to business productivity are being challenged and rewritten. Citrix will remain at the forefront of conversations about better ways of working that meet the needs of both business leaders and employees,” said Buckley.
“I look forward to working with the Citrix team and meeting our partners and customers over the coming months, to understand how we can bring our extensive knowledge and experience to industries in Australia and New Zealand in 2020 and beyond.”
