Sydney based cloud provider Vault Cloud has appointed Linton Burling its new head of sales and marketing in a push to drive greater engagement with its channel.
The community cloud provider is in the enviable position of being one of the only locally hosted clouds to have its source code verified by the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD).

“He will be heading up a growing team focused on developing our proactive marketing and sales channels and building brand awareness across new market opportunities.”
Vault said its refreshed partner focus will aim to satisfy market demand for an ecosystem of solutions delivered through a central skilled supplier.
“We are at a pivotal point as an organisation,” Burling said in a statement. “We are refining our partner offers to focus specifically on strategic partnerships, reseller relationships, and technology partners to ensure we’re delivering reciprocal benefits to each other, and our customers.”
“This will continue to complement our focus on providing wholesale capabilities for our partners as they service our larger customers.”
