He will be tasked with sharing his knowledge in the local Drupal community, offering training, encouraging local meetings and assisting partners with tenders, architectural issues and customer engagements.

Tine Sorensen also joins the team as technical account manager.

Other appointments include Chris O’Neill as a client advisor and Daniel Worthy is part of a new global team responsible for the uptime and scalability of the Acquia Cloud, which is an open Cloud platform for Drupal, built on Amazon Web Services Elastic Compute Cloud.

Worthy will be responsible for designing and developing tools that automatically deploy, maintain and monitor LAMP-based hosting environments, as well as researching, specifying and testing hosting infrastructures.

Acquia opened its Asia Pacific headquarters in Sydney in November last year.
