Commvault (NASDAQ:CVLT) says its new business strategy for ANZ in FY20 supports its “significant year-on-year growth and major contribution to the very successful year for in APAC”.
Bastow has been appointed as APAC senior director WW Alliances and Commvault said the strategy would focus on its technology alliances ecosystem.
Comvault said Bastow’s primary objective will be a “multi-pronged engagement to underline Commvault’s commitment and success as a partner with the likes of Cisco, Hitachi and Amazon Web Services (AWS)”.
“Australia has always been at the forefront of utilising best-of-breed technologies and there’s no better time to be working with our strategic partners to keep driving incredible value by getting the most out of their data.”
Bastow’s appointment coincides with the new restructure and expansion of the local sales team, an effort Commvault said is driven by its area vice president Rob Malkin to provide new and existing customers and partners with the “best people, processes and technologies to realise the full value of their data”.
According to Commvault, in just under a year, Malkin’s leadership of the ANZ market has witnessed a major surge in subscription sales, alongside significant growth and eco-system expansion in the ANZ Service Provider market.
The company also announced that, as it continues to invest in the ANZ based resources to support both partners and customers, Mark Adams, has also been appointed as Director, Enterprise Accounts for ANZ.
“Australia is a top market globally for Commvault in terms of revenue and is a key growth market for us in APAC. We are committed to providing this market with the best people, processes and technologies to optimise operations, meet stringent service levels, and realise the full value of its data – regardless of time and location,” Malkin said.
“Commvault’s track record of success over the past 12 months has further positioned our ANZ business operations for its next phase of growth and profitability. We have extensive customer support operations and Executive Briefing Center based here in Sydney.
“Our customer support reputation continues to be second to none in the market and a key reason we remain the partner of choice to an expanded distribution and alliance ecosystem, creating improved value for our customers and partners alike.”
