Brocade has appointed Jason Baden as Senior Director of Australia and New Zealand, with the former Juniper Networks Regional Sales Director tasked with driving the vendor’s business across both sides of the Tasman.

Replacing the departed Gary Denman, Baden will be based in Sydney and report directly to Brocade Vice President of Asia Pacific Japan (APJ), Adam Judd.

Bringing more than 15 years of technology management and business development experience, Baden joins Brocade from Juniper Networks, where he spent the last eight years in a variety of strategic business and account management roles.

“As we continue to build on our leadership as a pure-play networking company, Australia and New Zealand is a strategic market for Brocade and our soon to be integrated Ruckus Wireless business,” Judd said.

“Jason’s demonstrated leadership skills and track record as a challenger and disruptor naturally align with Brocade’s commitment to help customers capitalise on network innovation to transform their business.”

Prior to Juniper Networks, Baden held various business development and strategic account roles at AXS-One, Airwide Solutions, and Optus.

“No other networking vendor is as uniquely placed as Brocade is today: it is 100 percent focused on developing innovative and comprehensive solutions for network transformation,” Baden added.

“It’s an exciting time to join Brocade, and I look forward to helping our customers move to New IP network architectures that are virtualised, open, and agile, as they leverage next-generation technology opportunities for a competitive advantage.”

Baden will assume his new role beginning on July 25.
