Belkin's MD Ian McLean has stepped down

IT veteran Ian McLean has left the managing director post at Belkin, leaving the door open for Stephanie Ogden, a former sales director for the business to take the helm.

Ogden is currently managing director for A/NZ and South East Asia for Kobo Inc. Prior to Kobo, she was a former sales director for Belkin, “who had previously played a significant role in the growth of Belkin locally over her 13 years at the company,” a company statement said.

McLean, who’s reportedly leaving the business to pursue other opportunities, was crowned managing director in 2011 after Patrick Domingue left the role to be transferred to Belkin’s US operations.

ARN discussed the matter with McLean, who said he was not ready to divulge his future plans at this stage.

Prior to landing at Belkin, McLean was responsible for the storage business at Seagate, held the VP of Asia-Pacific sales role at Netgear, and was the head of sales and marketing at Netcomm.

“We are very grateful to Ian for his many contributions to Belkin. His positive impact on the company will benefit us for many years to come,” Belkin International founder and CEO, Chet Pipkin, said.

“I have enjoyed working with Ian over the past few years and I thank him for his dedication and service to Belkin.”

Pipkin praised Ogden’s record and prior experience with Belkin.

“In Stephanie we have a leader who knows our business intimately, has strong existing relationships with our key customers, and a drive that will undoubtedly be instrumental to our ongoing growth in Australia and New Zealand. I’m delighted she is returning to Belkin.”

Ogden said she is pleased to be returning to the company.

“I am thrilled to be re-joining Belkin at such an important time in the history of the company, and excited by the opportunities still ahead of us in Australia and New Zealand. I’m looking forward to leading and growing the A/NZ business, combining Belkin’s strong history of global innovation with robust and vibrant customer relationships locally,” she said.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
