Symantec has appointed Lucas Salter as the company's new country manager for the enterprise business in New Zealand, effective April 1.
Salter has been with Symantec for the past five years and has over 15 years of IT industry experience. Prior to his new role, Salter was the territory account manager for Western Australia. Over the years he has held sales and channel roles at Symantec, Data#3 Limited and CYBEC Pty Ltd.
He will now manage the day-to-day operations for Symantec's New Zealand enterprise business including sales, channels, distribution and systems engineering. He will be responsible for leading the New Zealand team across both Auckland and Wellington and will be relocating with his family to Auckland over the coming weeks.
“We’re creating a senior management role in New Zealand to better meet the needs of our enterprise, SMB and government customers,” says Craig Scroggie, vice president & managing director, Pacific Region, Symantec. “New Zealand continues to be an important market for Symantec and we’re confident that the wealth of sales and channel knowledge Lucas brings to this role will help to make Symantec an even greater strategic vendor with our channel partners and customers in this region.”
Stuart Preston, previously the national sales manager for Symantec in New Zealand, will remain with Symantec as a Wellington-based account director. “Wellington, and the public sector, is a significant market for our New Zealand business, and Stuart’s new position enables him to focus on this key location,” adds Scroggie.
