Email security provider Mimecast has appointed 20-year ICT industry veteran Craig McGregor as Channel Director, Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).

McGregor – who was most recently Director, Channel Sales APAC at SailPoint - joins Mimecast with experience in ANZ channels with international technology vendors, including with Microsoft, Adobe and Check Point Software Technologies.

“We’re a channel-focused company and strive to understand all of our partners’ businesses, making sure Mimecast is critical to their success,” said Nick Lennon, Country Manager, Australia and New Zealand, Mimecast.

“I’m convinced Craig will play a key role in supporting our partner’s growth. His background and extensive networks will help our partners deliver their business plans.”

McGregor said, “Mimecast is investing heavily in the channel and I’m looking forward to build strong relationships with our partners.”

Mimecast says McGregor’s appointment marks the culmination of a busy year for the company and, in addition to reaching more than 1200 customers and more than 120 partners within the ANZ region, it recently established a direct presence in Brisbane, Perth and Auckland to bolster its on-ground support.

And last month Mimecast launched its Cyber Alliance Program, providing customers with access to ready-to-use integrations from vendors.

In the past 18 months, Mimecast acquired Ataata, a cyber training and awareness platform that helps change security cultures in organisations, and Solebit, which led to the introduction of Mimecast’s Threat Intelligence Dashboard capability.
