Veeam has crowned Gary Mitchell as its new A/NZ vice president, stepping into the role that Don Williams vacated in October.

At the time, Williams said he decided to resign to reset, take a break and dedicate more time to his family.

Mitchell maintains more than 25 years of experience in sales, consulting and operations with IT organisations across Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

His extensive career features regional management roles in large technology vendors such as CA Technologies, BMC Software, Enterasys/Extreme Networks and RSA/EMC.

Prior to joining Veeam, Mitchell was the APJ director at Perfecto Mobile where he was responsible for establishing the business in the Asia Pacific region with subsequent staff and customer growth in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, China and India.

Mitchell said he had already spent some time with the team, looking into how it can expand the business even further in the region and will be adding about 10 extra staff to its channel team.

"We'll have some more channel partner managers, people to focus on further enabling channel partners and additional inside channel sales people. We're in expansion mode in 2018," Mitchell told ARN. 

Mitchell’s appointment news coincides with Veeam’s 2017 results, which the company said it saw 19 per cent growth in year-on-year total bookings across Australia and New Zealand, as well as 46 per cent growth in renewal bookings with 2731 ProPartners and 9531 total customers as of December 31.

At the same time as Williams’ resignation in October, Shaun McLagan - formerly of Dell EMC, RSA Security, CA Technologies, Hewlett-Packard and Oracle - was appointed as senior vice president of Asia Pacific and Japan for Veeam, with the A/NZ role falling under his remit.
