New career challenge for Cashmore

New career challenge for Cashmore

Andrew Cashmore has left Citrix to build and head New Zealand operations for wide area data services vendor Riverbed.

Cashmore departed Citrix last month after nearly eight years, leaving the vendor without a local country manager. Colleen McArthur is now the channel sales manager here.

Citrix has also seen its second Australia and New Zealand operations chief leave in the last 12 months, with the exit of Karl Liebman last month to return to the US. Gary O’Brien left the same role in May last year.

Enterprise sales director Rob Willis has filled in for Liebman since his departure and will now become the Australia/New Zealand area vice president.

Cashmore's new role continues his tradition of establishing a company's presence in New Zealand, the first was with Cheyenne Software (that was acquired by CA). “That’s what I do, I take leading edge technologies to market,” he says.

The local market is ripe for Riverbed technology, says Cashmore.

“With the emerging realities of IT such as the centralisation of infrastructure, bigger pipes and faster links, Riverbed will become a big player.”

Riverbed is distributed locally by Datastor. Owner Vic Dickerson says Riverbed’s direct presence will be positive for his company. “Up until now we’ve been doing everything. Now we’ll work together as a team,” says Dickerson.

Cashmore is working from Riverbed’s central Auckland office and is looking to hire a systems engineer.

Riverbed already has an office in Sydney and more than 15 worldwide.

The vendor showed it was increasing its profile here by presenting last year at Datastor's Forum and Gen-i's Bizgo.
