Former Brocade country and channel manager Greig Guy has emerged from his sabbatical as the new ANZ channel manager for Quantum.
"We're looking forward to working with a channel-focused expert who will continue to expand and align our local channel relationships," said Quantum Asia-Pacific channel sales director Anne Collins.
Guy had a nine-year tenure at Brocade Communications that included a stint as Australia country manager. He left in December as ANZ partner manager to take a "sabbatical", according to a Brocade spokesperson in March.
Guy was also channel director for four years at Hitachi Data Systems Australia.
"I’m eager to work with our existing channel partner community to give them the sales and presales support they need to create demand in the market, as well as welcoming new partners on board in the coming months," said Guy.
Quantum is a US vendor that claims to have 100,000 global customers. The company launched a local MSP program in October, to provide channel partners with backup-as-a-service and disaster-recovery-as-a-service.
