Acronis plans channel manager boost

Acronis plans to bolster its channel team as a resource  for partners to help grow sales.

The vendor's new country sales manager for A/NZ Simon Howe said "who or how many" was yet to be finalised.

"We'll be delivering actual Acronis resources to assist partners in sales activities," he said.

"We're extending our resources internally to deal with the channel. We already have a national distribution manager on board for our three distributors.

"We want to extend our sales presence, so we'll be adding channel managers to our presence."

Howe said the past year had been strong for Acronis. He said the vendor wanted to use this year to raise partner growth rates in line with those experienced by Acronis.

He believed the new Acronis staff resources available, combined with other partner program offers including training and certification, would place partners well to achieve growth prospects.

Howe replaced Bill Taylor-Mountford, who has been promoted to president for Asia Pacific and will relocate to Singapore this month.

Acronis make onsite and offsite backup, disaster recovery and security products.
