Citrix has appointed Phil Caleno to the newly created role of Netscaler ANZ senior manager.
Caleno will be responsible for driving channel business for the Netscaler offering, which provides application acceleration, load balancing and web security technologies to companies.
Based in Sydney, he will report to ANZ product sales director Bede Hackney.
Hackney says the vendor has created the role in response to strong growth in the application delivery controller, WAN optimisation and VPN technology fields.
Prior to joining Citrix, Caleno was systems engineering manager at Bluecoat.
He also worked at F5 Networks for five years as technical director and principal consultant.
