Enterprise cloud vendor Nutanix has appointed David Gage as its Australia and New Zealand channel director.

"David is passionate about the ANZ channel and will not only be key to driving our Elevate program in the region, but he'll help drive our overall business and channel strategy," said Nutanix APJ senior director of channels and OEM Jacob Pereira.

"His experience gives him a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities on all sides of the channel. This will help us partner more effectively and enable our partners to grow and become more profitable."

Gage has 25 years' experience in the IT industry. He joins Nutanix from fintech startup CCube where he served as managing director.

He previously worked as managing director of Westcon-Comstor Australia, SMS&P director at Microsoft Australia. CEO of Express Data, general manager of Dimension Data Learning Solutions, general manager of licensing at Dimension Data, general manager of Express Online, and Queensland state manager at Express Data.

"The pandemic has led to a surge in IT investment, with the channel playing a pivotal role in solving the challenges enterprises and Government organisations face," said Gage.

"Partners need proven, innovative technology – like Nutanix – to help them converge their datacentre, databases and now clouds, particularly as hybrid cloud becomes the environment of choice."
