Global application delivery networking provider F5 Networks has appointed former Acionex and Autodesk senior sales executive, Rob Malkin, as managing director sales for the Australia and New Zealand region.

Prior to F5, Malkin, with more than 18 years of experience in the IT industry, was the APAC sales director for Autodesk and also worked at Agile PLM (Oracle) and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

He has worked across cloud and hybrid technologies within manufacturing, architecture, engineering, telecommunications and infrastructure industries across the US and APAC markets.

“Rob comes to us with extensive transformational experience as well as channel management experience across the region,” said Emmanuel Bonnassie, senior vice-president, sales, Asia Pacific, F5 Networks.

“This expertise is important as we are revitalising our market strategy to drive thought leadership in hybrid cloud and application security in A/NZ.”

According to Malkin, the technological landscape of Australia is undergoing a vast shift.

“Hybrid cloud and security-as-a-service is set to massively expand as companies accelerate their digital transformation and demand the skills that a specialist vendor can provide,” he says.

“F5 has had strong growth in the region and I look to expand this with a renewed focus on our target markets.”
