Kaseya's former managing director A/NZ, Dermot McCann, joined Optus Business yesterday as its enterprise sales director.

McCann confirmed to ARN that he left the IT management Cloud company at the end of the last quarter, just before Christmas.

"We had a strong quarter, and I felt it was the right time to leave and pursue an exciting opportunity elsewhere," he said.

McCann started his new role at Optus Business on Monday, but told ARN he would not be doing any formal interviews until he was settled into his new role.

McCann has been Kaseya's Australian boss for four years, and said he is proud of what he has achieved there, and leaves behind a great team. A successor has yet to be appointed.

At the time of print, Kaseya had not responded to requests for comment on the above.

McCann previously spent eight years at IBM, in a variety of leadership positions, and before that was general manager IT (CIO) at Logical Australia.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
