The Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA) is planning to further its channel reach with Ingram Micro ANZ joining the association.
The membership also means New Zealand-based server storage business unit general manager Terry Dunn has been appointed to the SNIA board of directors.
In his board role Dunn will focus on increasing SNIA ANZ’s local presence and range of activities.
Chairman Craig Scroggie says the addition of Ingram Micro has the added benefit of bringing a New Zealand focus to its programmes.
“We look forward to providing a wide range of vendor-neutral content to Ingram Micro, its channel partners and their customers. With Ingram Micro’s broad reach into the channel its assistance in helping to drive SNIA ANZ’s strategic education programmes into the channel will be invaluable.”
Ingram Micro ANZ vice president and managing director Jay Miley says Dunn will be a valuable addition to the SNIA board.
“He’s tremendously experienced in this industry, and combines a thorough knowledge of the technologies, products and vendors with a deep understanding of industry issues.”
