Acronis ANZ general manager Lincoln Goldsmith has parted ways with the company after nearly two years.
Goldsmith will join Cisco Meraki in an Asia-Pacific regional channel role, with the official title to be announced on Monday.
An Acronis spokesperson told CRN: “We regret Lincoln's departure, we are very proud to have played an important part in his professional career.”
Goldsmith joined Acronis in April 2014 as a sales director for mobility, and was promoted to general manager seven months later.
It’s not the first time Goldsmith has worked in an Asia-Pacific channel role. Before joining Acronis, he was director of channel sales for ANZ and APJ for storage vendor Virident Systems from September 2013 to April 2014. He was also CommVault Asia-Pacific’s director of channel from April 2012 to July 2013.
Acronis is on the lookout for a new general manager to head up the local channel. Until a replacement is found, Acronis vice president and GM of sales for Asia-Pacific Steve Goh will run the ANZ operations.
Goh joined Acronis in October 2015 after more than 22 years in the IT industry, including six years at Hewlett-Packard, four years at EMC, and nine years at Microsoft. His most recent position prior to Acronis was senior director for Microsoft Asia Pacific’s OEM division, a role he had held since 2012.
Acronis is an international data protection, disaster recovery and secure access solutions vendor. It lists Data#3, Insight, Chill IT and Computers Now among its Australian partners.
