Security vendor Sophos is on the hunt for a country manager after growing at the rate required to open a local office.
Australia/New Zealand head Zoe Nicholson has had responsibility for both countries for the past year, but Sophos now wants to recruit a leader for its New Zealand operation.
“We’ve managed to grow the business enough to warrant [an office] which is a good sign. It’s easier when you have to do the next follow up if you can say ‘when do you want us to come back?’ rather than ‘I’ll be back in three weeks’,” she says.
The person will be based in either Auckland or Wellington, and Nicholson hopes they’ll be on board by the company’s new financial year in April. “That would be ideal. Even if I could get someone by the end of February or March I’d go for that.”
