Exclusive Networks has appointed Jeff Clynes as country manager of New Zealand, recruiting the distribution expert from Arrow ECS NZ.
Reseller News can reveal that Clynes is tasked with expanding the distributor’s footprint across the country, alongside driving expansion through partner and vendor networks.
“Jeff’s extensive distribution experience and strong relationships in the New Zealand market made him an obvious choice Exclusive,” said Jonathan Odria, managing director of Pacific at Exclusive Networks. “Jeff is well suited to build on our year-on-year growth of 60 per cent in New Zealand, and take us the next level.
“We are continuing our investment in New Zealand and have recently moved to larger new premises, we will have two additional new resources join in the next two months as part of growth strategy.”
Clynes - who replaces Mike Nugent in the role - joins from Arrow ECS NZ, having held the role of Kiwi sales manager for more than two years, during a three-year stint with the distributor.
Prior to Arrow ECS NZ, Clynes spent five years at Westcon-Comstor in New Zealand, first as a client manager and then as business manager of APC by Schneider Electric, Blue Coat and Check Point portfolios.
