LiveTiles, an Australian start-up offering user experience solutions for Microsoft technologies, appointed Owen Brandt as its new vice president for the Asia Pacific region on 11 January.
The newly created role is a part of LiveTiles' growth strategy following its ASX listing in September.
"Role focus would be to lead relationships with key customers and LiveTiles partners in APAC, including Microsoft and Rhipe,” Brandt told CRN.
“Like many, I have been closely following LiveTiles’ progress over the past 12 to 18 months and have been really impressed with the level of innovation."
Brandt was previously the alliance director for Sitecore, where he was responsible for Asia-Pacific partner strategy. This included strategic alliances with Microsoft, Accenture, Avanade, Deloitte Digital, Oakton and Ogilvy.
LiveTiles chief executive Karl Redenbach said: “Owen is an individual whose reputation precedes him and we are excited to have him. I am certain our customer and partner networks across APAC will enjoy the benefit of Owen’s experience over the coming months, just as I know our broader business will.”
LiveTiles is a global technology company with offices in New York and Melbourne that offers modern user experience-focused technology solutions to the enterprise, education and SMB markets.
It was spun out of Australian Microsoft partner nSynergy when the Sharepoint reseller was acquired by Rhipe, formerly NewLease.
The ISV's solutions include LiveTiles Design for SharePoint and Office 365, LiveTiles Build, LiveTiles Push Notifications App and LiveTiles Mosaic for Office 365 Education.
