Virtualisation and Cloud infrastructure company, VMware, has appointed Kerrie-Anne Turner as its A/NZ head of channels and general business. Turner’s first day in the office is February 15.

She replaces John Donovan, who departed the VMware A/NZ business in November last year and joined ForgeRock as its new A/NZ and ASEAN regional vice-president.

VMware said with a 25-year career in the information technology sector, including 15 years with software company Symantec, and holding both global and regional senior executive roles, Turner brings to VMware a comprehensive management and leadership skillset and the strong industry experience required to help continue the company’s current trajectory into 2016.

Before joining VMware, she held dual roles of vice-president Asia-Pacific and managing director Australia at StayinFront and was responsible for the company’s strategic direction, its operational productivity and sales growth targets in the Asia-Pacific region. She held these positions for more than six years.

Prior to that, Turner was the A/NZ managing director at MessageLabs for more than a year. She was also an Asia-Pacific advisory board member at the company.

Turner was the managing director of the StayinFront Group Australia between 2007 and 2008.

She has also held a number of roles in Symantec – as its senior director of global services between 2001 and 2007, its director of channels and strategic alliances between 2000 and 2001, Asia-Pacific marketing director in 2000, general manager of India and sales and marketing manager of South-East Asia between 1997 and 2000, and its channel sales and marketing manager between 1995 and 1997.
