Integrator NSC on track to be 15-strong this year

Communications and network integrator NSC Group’s local plans have come to fruition, with the establishment of two branches and 10 staff hired so far.

It plans a local launch for resellers later this month or early in September.

Since the Australian company established a presence in late May, New Zealand country manager Mark Wallendorf says the company has hired 10 staff as planned, including five who used to work for Sun Microsystems in New Zealand. It has also opened offices in Auckland and Wellington.

In Auckland, the company has hired three salespeople, three pre-sales engineers and a public relations/administration representative. In Wellington, it has two sales staff, and two presales engineers. The Wellington team includes former Sun country manager John Mazenier, who began on July 1 as a sales executive. NSC Group still plans to have 15 staff here by the end of the 2009 financial year, says Wallendorf.

“They [the five new staff] will be spread over Auckland and Wellington. The roles are pointing in the direction of service engineers.

“We’ve picked up a high calibre of Sun people and we also have an advantage in that we are Sun-centric. We’ll concentrate on the Sun market.”

NSC does not rule out recruiting further staff from Sun if the opportunity arises, says Wallendorf.

The company also represents the Avaya agency. “We’ve been having serious talks with Avaya,” he says. “With [Avaya] distribution now going through Distribution Central that has helped us, as a start-up entity. They’re building their [Avaya] business and we’re building ours. We’re assisting each other to see how we can build the market.”

Although Avaya and Sun Microsystems accounts for the majority of its business, Wallendorf says the company is talking to other vendors including Aruba Networks and Juniper Networks. Aruba is the company’s preferred wireless network partner, says Wallendorf.

“We have to look at what the customer wants and what they require.”
