Technology lifecycle solution provider Greenbox Systems has brought in former Data#3 exec Phillip Dickman as its new chief executive.
He will replace founder Shane Mulholland, who will assume the executive chairman role after leading the company since 2000.
“The combination of Greenbox’s position as a leader in IT lifecycle solutions and Phil’s extensive experience allows me to take a step back from working in the business to work on the business,” Mulholland said.
“Phil’s success in driving revenues and managing mergers and acquisitions means he is ideally suited to achieve our required directives.”
Dickman will be responsible for managing Greenbox’s day-to-day operations, with a particular focus on its sales strategy.
He most recently was Data#3’s national sales manager for infrastructure solutions, and was with the company from 2014. He also held various sales roles in Davidson Recruitment, Onthehouse Group, GBST and Suncorp.
“The number of malicious and inadvertent threats to data security continues to increase, and organisations across all sectors – and especially government and large enterprise – are focused on minimising risk by protecting their assets both virtually and physically,” Dickman said.
“The importance of these tactics is only compounded by initiatives such as the Notifiable Breach Disclosure (NBD) scheme and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which outline strict requirements for the way in which data is stored and handled, making accountability a top priority.”
Greenbox Systems manages its customers’ IT assets end-to-end, from pre-deployment and installation, right through critical data sanitisation and disposal to ensure sensitive information is effectively destroyed when a device is replaced.
In March, the company launched an IT lifecycle services facility in Canberra, the Canberra IT Commissioning Centre, adding to its sites in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
