Former APAC DocuSign executive Brad Newton has joined data management vendor Cohesity as managing director for Australia and New Zealand.

Newton joins Cohesity with 20 years of sales leadership experience across Australia, New Zealand, and the broader Asia Pacific region.

He joins Cohesity following six years as vice president for APAC at DocuSign, which provides digital transaction management, and prior to that, he was chief operating officer at Hills Limited, an Australia system integrator for consumers and businesses.

Newton has also held senior enterprise sales positions at Symantec, Citrix, and Avaya.

Based in Sydney, Newton is responsible for expanding sales and deployment of Cohesity solutions across the ANZ region, and his appointment comes as the software company “radically simplifies modern data management, expands its cloud services, and enables organisations across the region to do more with their data”.

“What Cohesity has achieved in a short space of time is really impressive,” said Newton.

“Business operations and IT have changed dramatically given Covid-19, with leaders looking to lower their expenses, support critical IT functions remotely, and accelerate the transformation of legacy data infrastructure that can be complex and time-consuming to manage. To stay competitive and thrive in these times, customers need to modernise their data management strategy.

“Cohesity’s innovative data management approach is unlike anything on the market today in terms of scale, breadth, and choice. I look forward to working with the Cohesity team and our outstanding partners to deliver even more value to our customers in a multicloud world.”

Cohesity says the hiring of Newton follows an expanding data management market in Australia and New Zealand, estimated to be worth around AU$700 million.
