Lincoln Goldsmith, previously Mobility Sales Director , has been promoted to the position, reporting to the President of Acronis International and Executive Vice President of Asia Pacific, Japan & Emerging Markets, Jan-Jaap Jager.
Jan-Jaap Jager said Goldsmith takes on the role while Acronis is actively building momentum in the region.
In addition to its recent acquisitions of BackupAgent for service providers and the nScaled Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service portfolio, Jan-Jaap Jager said next week the company will be announcing the release of new Acronis Access solutions including data access, sync and share editions for small to midsize businesses (SMBs) and larger enterprises.
Jan-Jaap Jager said one of Goldsmith’s priorities is to strengthen and develop the Acronis ANZ distribution channel, and he will host representatives from seven local partners at the ‘Accelerating Growth with Acronis’ Partner Summit, being held in Singapore from 19 to 21 November.
“Due to the widespread acceptance of cloud, mobility and backup in ANZ, this region will be a very important growth point for Acronis within the coming years,” Jan-Jaap Jager said.
“With his deep knowledge of our marketplace and the Acronis channel, the new drivers for partners’ success and the value of our technologies, we know that Lincoln is the right person to deliver on our expectations.”
Goldsmith said his focus would be on leveraging Acronis’ expanding product set to engage with the right customers and the right partners to increase the company’s growth across the two countries.
