Harry Guy joins the company after building out the APAC region for monitoring platform LogicMonitor where he was first employed in late 2018.
ConnectWise says that as the first man on the ground in region, Harry Guy established a strong presence across go-to-market functions and successfully grew the team to over 15 staff whilst significantly improving new customer acquisition and customer retention.
Prior to that, Guy held senior roles at Oracle NetSuite and Autotask in the UK.
Katrina Evans joins ConnectWise and most recently held the role of Senior Marketing Manager at SolarWinds for APAC. Prior to that, she was a Senior Manager, Integrated Marketing at Symantec (now Broadcom).
