SnapperNet, the data communication products distributor for IT service providers, has reaffirmed its commitment to the Cradlepoint range of solutions with the announcement of Shane Williamson as Business Development Manager.
In this role, Williamson will be responsible for identifying and working with partners to grow the Cradlepoint business in New Zealand.
Cradlepoint provide solutions that power the always-connected distributed enterprise - joining data, cloud, security and the evolving IoT with intelligent networking.
According to SnapperNet Director Richard Paul, the potential for expansion in the M2M and Internet of Things space is “massive” across New Zealand.
“Shane has extensive experience in the networking area and in-depth understanding of Cradlepoint products,” he says.
“He will communicate the merits of these products to customers and build the brand in New Zealand using his strong business development skills.”
Williamson comes from a background in the networking and telco space, working as Enterprise Services Manager at HP, as well as other local roles at Vector Communications, Juniper Networks and Gen-i, now Spark Digital.
“I always try to understand customers’ business issues or new ideas and translate these into solutions that deliver successful outcomes to business needs and objectives,” Williamson says.
“I hope to be able to bring this expertise to my new role at SnapperNet.”
A key part of Williamson’s role will be helping Kiwi partners and resellers to build solutions for customers with Cradlepoint.
“People now want to connect things that haven’t previously been connected,” he adds.
“Cradlepoint provides the perfect way to do this in a secure manner in challenging environments.
“For companies that are shifting their business computing to the cloud, Cradlepoint offers products that can provide protection from a WAN or Internet access failure that could have a significant financial impact on their business.”
