Melbourne Microsoft partner Readify has hired Dimension Data’s former Victorian state manager Andrew Phillips as national sales director.
Phillips spent nearly ten years at Dimension Data as ACT branch manager and the last three as Victorian state manager. His resume also includes time at Unisys, Nortel, Meta Group and Getronics. Phillips starts in his new role today.
Readify’s managing director Graeme Strange called the hiring a “coup”, pointing to Phillips’ 30 years of experience in the technology industry.
The appointment follows a year of expansion for Readify, which bought analytics firm Huegin Consutling and a stake in brand and user experience design agency Folk. Readify is also actively looking for senior .NET developers and senior .NET consultants for its Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane teams.
Readify was scheduled to list on the Australian Stock Exchange this year, but Strange told CRN previously the listing is now scheduled for May 2016.
