Zscaler has appointed Sean Kopelke as country manager of Australia and New Zealand, recruiting the channel security veteran from FireEye.

Based in Sydney, Kopelke joins the cloud security company with over 20 years of experience across the industry, and will be responsible for overseeing Zscaler’s business expansion on both sides of the Tasman.

“Security has never been more critical for organisations and we welcome Sean’s insight and leadership in providing clarity and support to our customers and partners,” Zscaler vice president of Asia Pacific and Japan, Scott Robertson, said.

“His new business development experience across the Asia Pacific region will be invaluable in developing strategies that will successfully engage with customers and partners across the Australian and New Zealand markets.

“He will play an integral role building value relationships and substantially adding to the experience, skills base and business knowledge of Zscaler’s partners in the region.”

During his career in the IT industry, Kopelke has held a number of senior sales and technical management positions, including responsibility for new business development across the Asia Pacific region.

Kopelke was previously director of global service providers and managed security service providers across Asia Pacific and Japan for FireEye.

In this role, he was responsible for leading a team of global account managers to develop partnerships with the region’s managed service providers, integrators and global and regional telecommunications companies.

Prior to that, Kopelke held several senior management roles at Symantec for ten years, including as senior director of sales specialists and technical sales organisation across Australia and New Zealand.

In this role, he led a team of business development managers, solution architects and pre-sales engineers providing a broad range of technology from data centre and information management, backup and recovery, through to cybersecurity and information management.
