Phil Cameron has left his CA vice-president of sales post to join IBM as its new A/NZ business partner organisation director.

Cameron steps into the role previously occupied by Andrew Baker, who has moved into IBM’s growth markets business unit as the Avnet client director. The growth markets include Asia-Pacific, Brazil and Russia.

Cameron joined CA in October last year and previously spent 18 months as the managing director at Lenovo.

For several years he was also the channel manager for both Lenovo and IBM. Prior to that, Cameron worked with Toshiba. He was also inducted into the ARN Hall of Fame in 2008 for his contribution to the IT industry.

Avnet marketing director, Michael Costigan, said IBM was one of its major suppliers not only in Asia, but also globally.

"With Andrew on-board we're very excited because he brings years of experience with him in the channel and he was instrumental in 2001 in getting the Avnet relationship in Australia off the ground," Costigan said.

Baker's role would provide more focus and the ability to introduce some of Avnet's programs driven from North America and EMEA into the Asia-Pacific level, he said.

"We'll have a much more strategic engagement. It's a sign that Avnet is growing its Asia-Pacific presence," he said.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
