Hitachi Vantara has appointed Adrian Johnson to the roles of vice president and managing director for Australia and New Zealand.

He will be responsible for managing the business and operations in the region, focusing on the partner ecosystem, business strategy and business growth.

Johnson said recent changes in cloud technology – such as true multi-cloud strategies and hyper-converged infrastructures and data analytics – have made way for “exciting” progress in the industry.

“I am excited to work with the A/NZ team to offer Hitachi Vantara expertise and our growing portfolio of technology and services to build the capabilities of our partners and customers in support of this progress.”  

Previously, Johnson was working at Liferay as general manager for A/NZ for over three years.

Johnson also worked at Code 42 Software, Dell, Fuji Xerox, Computer Associates and Sun Microsystems.

Daniel Chong, senior vice president and general manager of Hitachi Vantara APAC, said Johnson’s appointment coincides with Hitachi Vantara’s growth in the A/NZ region.

“Adrian will drive local co-creation opportunities and innovative data-driven strategies that aim to deliver business value and accelerate digital transformation for our customers and partners.”

Johnson replaces Hitachi Vantara former vice president for A/NZ Nathan McGregor who has been appointed the VP for data analytics and IoT for Asia Pacific with the company in April 2019. After McGregor's appointment and before Johnson's appointment, Tony Wigham, sales director for A/NZ was the acting managing director.

This appointment follows the promotion of Marc Fiala to senior partner business manager and channel leader for A/NZ back in April.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.
