Simone Rose exits Symantec

Symantec New Zealand channel sales manager Simone Rose (nee Milne) has left the company abruptly. Her position has been dissolved locally and will now be handled from Australia.

Sources close to the company suggest Rose’s role was made redundant.

Symantec would not discuss why Rose left, but it did confirm her duties will be taken over by Australian-based Pacific retail sales managers Michelle Thompson and Dave Berthelsen. They will work with Symantec’s local channel partners and retailers.

“It is corporate policy not to disclose the reasons for an individual’s departure from the company,” says a Sydney-based Symantec spokesperson.

In a statement the company thanked Rose for her contributions and wished her all the best.

Rose’s departure follows the sudden exit of Symantec’s managing director for Australia and New Zealand and vice president of the Pacific region, David Sykes, and regional channel director, John Donovan last November.

At the time, the vendor stated it had made the changes to streamline the company’s Asia-Pacific and Japan business operations, so that it can reinvest into other areas of the business.

Rose was contacted for comment, but did not return calls at the time of going to press.
