The Australian arm of the multinational IT industry body CompTIA has announced the election of its maiden executive council.
Cloud integrator HubOne's managing director Nick Beaugeard has been appointed chairperson, with Kaseya Asia-Pacific sales director Kellie Hackney in the vice chairperson role.
"I’m honoured to have been named chair of the CompTIA ANZ executive council. I look forward to working together with this great team of IT executives to achieve our shared goal of a healthy, innovative, and prosperous local IT landscape," said Beaugeard.
Former IBM stalwart and now Westcon alliances director Phil Cameron, The Missing Link general manager Karen Drewitt, Nexus IT principal Sean Murphy, Distribution Central chief Nick Verykios, Avnet director Mark Johnston, Staples Australia head of technology Karl Sice, and Citrix channel manager Belinda Jurisic round out the nine-person council.
"It’s great to have a mix of vendors, distributors and resellers represented in the new executive council," said CompTIA community director for the ANZ Channel Moheb Moses.
"There is also a good balance between large and small companies, and men and women, which means we can genuinely address the needs of the community. The purpose of CompTIA in ANZ is to foster channel business development through networking and collaboration, which will be facilitated by this team of people."
