As Managing Director ANZ, Pacific, Maree, who joined Interactive Intelligence (Nasdaq: ININ) eight years ago, has been responsible for growing company sales, managing partner relationships, supporting company acquisitions and boosting the company’s employee base which now numbers more than 120 people across Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
Maree’s appointment to the Asia Pacific role comes at a time as the company continues to ramp its presence across the Asia Pacific region and, according to Maree, witnesses “increased sales momentum for cloud-based contact centre solution deployments.”
Maree said that during the past 12 months alone, Interactive Intelligence has launched new office locations in Perth and Auckland, hosted its inaugural ANZ user conference and was named Frost and Sullivan’s 2013 Australian Contact Centre Applications Vendor of the Year.
“In addition, the Asia Pacific region as a whole provides a major opportunity for our cloud-based contact centre solutions as companies seek to harness the productivity, scalability and cost savings which both hybrid and cloud infrastructure solutions provide. I look forward to expanding my remit to include Japan in 2014,” Maree said.
