McLean to leave Netgear

McLean to leave Netgear

Locally based Asia-Pacific boss to consider his options

After a decade with the company, Netgear vice-president of Asia-Pacific sales, Ian McLean, has announced plans to leave the company at the end of June.

"I get a 10-year itch it seems because it was the same when I worked with NetComm," he said.

McLean spent a decade working with NetComm, rising to the position of sales and marketing manager, before joining Netgear.

With no immediate plans to jump into a fresh challenge, McLean is planning to take his family back to the UK for a holiday and will use the time to assess his options.

"I have been talking with Netgear about this since the beginning of the year," he said. "I don't yet know whether I will be staying in the industry but this gives me some time to talk about what's going on. I haven't been able to do that so far because I wanted to do the right thing by Netgear."

The huge Asia-Pacific geography McLean is currently responsible for, which includes India and Japan, will be broken up into northern and southern divisions but neither of those roles will be based in Australia.

Locally, Sue Ponder will continue to run its channel business with Ryan Parker heading up telecommunications.
