US-based third-party IT maintenance services provider Curvature has expanded to Australia with an office in Sydney and a satellite office in Melbourne.
The company also appointed Darren Clarkin from Cisco as country manager for Australia.
"This move ignites our ability to partner more closely with Curvature customers and partners across this vital region," Curvature chief executive Peter Weber said.
"By opening offices in Australia, we can respond to escalating demand for our vendor-agnostic services while freeing local customer teams from daily support burdens."
Curvature offers customers end-to-end services, 24/7 global support, advanced hardware replacement and complete IT asset life-cycle management under a consolidated worldwide contract.
The company has operations in 11 other countries, plus more than 100 staffed service centres and 600 parts locations globally.
Clarkin joined Curvature last year after working as APJ director for global and large accounts for Cisco. He also worked at VMware and printing services provider Lanier Worldwide.
"I'm thrilled to join Curvature and help building a sustainable operation in the ANZ region," Clarkin said.
"Our value proposition is compelling to any organization faced with the constant need to innovate while still maintaining legacy IT infrastructures.”
Curvature APAC general manager Jason Ogden said Clarkin is tasked to drive further momentum in the region.
"Our service delivery model has been well established in Australia for nearly a decade," Ogden said.
"We're excited to have an experienced leader of Darren's caliber ensure that our clients and partners benefit from rapid, hands-on support and expert IT services execution."
