WhiteGold names Richard Crabb NZ country manager

A new building and a budding team for the distributor

WhiteGold Solutions has set up shop in Auckland, having appointed Richard Crabb to be the distributor's country manager. The company, which has sold into New Zealand from Australia until recently, announced that it has put in place a local team. In addition to Crabb, the company has appointed an inside sales representative, and is currently interviewing sales engineers.

WhiteGold is currently distributing Fortinet, Barracuda, Allied Telesis, Kaspersky, FireEye, Solera, nCircle, Meraki, and Zscaleras in New Zealand, but anticipates bringing more brands from its Australia portfolio in the coming months. The company appointed Crabb as country manager for New Zealand and the Pacific Island in August, according to LinkedIn. Crabb comes to WhiteGold from BrightStar, where he was the ICT and UC manager, and has 25 years experience in IT. “The first piece of the puzzle was to hire a country manager with the credentials to start up and grow a channel business to match our operation in Australia," says WhiteGold sales director Jonathan Odria, in a statement. "Richard is a well-respected channel identity and has successfully operated in the local NZ channel for many years, developing trusted relationships from Enterprise to SMB level.”
