Molloy eyes Pacific growth with new APC post

Jason Molloy aims to grow APC’s newly-awarded business in the Pacific Islands, having traded management of the vendor’s brand at distributor Datastor for a business development role at APC.

Molloy spent three years at Datastor, but joined APC earlier this week. He is looking after a territory which encompasses New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

APC was awarded control of the Pacific Islands territory in August due to local success with the product, says Molloy.

“I want to grow the APC business there and develop new partnerships.”

Local APC country manager Andrew Kirker says the Pacific Islands is an important growth area for APC. The company has distributors in Vanuatu, Tahiti, New Caledonia, Fiji, the Cook Islands and Samoa.

“We have distributors set up in the islands in order to provide local support and assist ANZ resellers when they make sales in the territory,” says Kirker.

Molloy says he is joining APC at a time of growth and it is an opportunity to extend his career boundaries.

“After three years at Datastor, I felt I had gone as far as I could in the role.

“You never stop learning in IT and I’m keen to increase my knowledge of datacentres.

“APC is a fast growing company and there is strong interest from organisations in datacentres and virtualisation. I’m looking forward to working with the APC team.”

Prior to joining Datastor, Molloy worked in management roles for automotive companies such as Bridgestone Tyres.

“I was always the default IT guy at the automotive companies I worked for and all my friends work in IT, so I decided to get in on the action.”

Kirker says Molloy’s diverse background and experience with datacentres will be invaluable. “He will be looking after end users, but also assisting the channel to sell stock.”
