<p>Australia, 6 July, 2004 – 3Com Corporation (Nasdaq: COMS) has appointed Mr. Bob Ilievski as its new marketing manager, ANZA and India, as the company pushes further into the Asia Pacific enterprise market.</p>
<p>Currently based in Melbourne, Mr. Ilievski will be responsible for devising 3Com’s regional marketing plan in Australia, New Zealand and India to strengthen the company’s profile in the enterprise networking space. A crucial part of his mission will be to raise awareness of 3Com’s ability to deliver a broad range of high performance products and solutions that offer tangible returns on investment and improved total cost of ownership.</p>
<p>“My key objective is to align all activities with our key partners to build greater confidence in the market. The IT sector has picked up recently and my mission is to show customers that 3Com is a premium contender in the enterprise networking space,” Mr. Ilievski said. “Additionally, we will consolidate our already solid small and medium enterprise (SME) standing and channel profile to build on our success”.</p>
<p>Mr. Ilievski will work closely with the local sales and channel teams, which were boosted earlier this year with the appointments of David Richardson and Simon Edwards to the roles of enterprise and channel director respectively. Drawing on his extensive experience in business management, he will ensure that 3Com’s marketing strategy meets overarching local business objectives and global corporate goals.</p>
<p>Prior to joining 3Com, Mr. Ilievski held senior roles in business and marketing throughout Australia and Europe. More recently he spent seven years in Sweden as Ericsson’s Senior Business Manager for its Mobile Internet division where he managed sales teams that secured over $900M (AUD) of business.</p>
<p>Mr. Ilievski holds a bachelors degree in Engineering (Electrical and Electronic) (Honours) from Victoria University. Outside of 3Com, he enjoys sailing, golf and AFL.</p>
