Centrify names new regional sales manager

Derek Morwood will be responsible for Australia, New Zealand and India

Unified identity management company Centrify has appointed technology industry veteran Derek Morwood as regional sales manager, responsible for Australia, New Zealand and India.

Morwood was previously employed by Lan1, Opengear, Snapgear and Stallion Technologies.

He takes on the new role after two years as internal sales representative for Centrify.

Morwood has been tasked with recruiting more partners for Centrify in Australia, New Zealand and India and appointing a new internal sales representative at Centrify’s Australian office in Brisbane.

In Australia and New Zealand, Centrify sells 100 per cent through channel partners.

The announcement follows Centrify’s recent appointment of Niall King as Senior Director APAC Sales, operating out of Centrify’s Silicon Valley head office and Japan.

Morwood said his primary focus was to support partners to win larger enterprise contracts.

“In the US, Centrify has half the Fortune 50 companies and 60-plus government agencies as clients,” he said.

“Our goal is to build our momentum to win more of these blue chip accounts in Australia and the broader region.

"My regional sales role frees me up to focus on these sorts of opportunities, both in Australia and in New Zealand, where we have a lot of great potential. I also believe India will become huge for us.”

Centrify last month announced it has become the first company in the Identity-as-a-Service market to pass the milestone of supporting more than 2000 customers in the cloud.
