Antivirus vendor, Trend Micro, has announced several new appointments amid a reorganisation and expansion of its channel operations.
Newly appointed channel account manager, David Jordan, joins its Melbourne office. A former Surf Control channel manager, Jordan said he was attracted by the large product range that Trend Micro offered.
He will report to Australian channel director, Graeme Burt, who said the team servicing the channel had been increased from two to seven staff during his 12 months with the vendor.
It also included ex-Ingram Micro staffer, Greg Boyle, who filled the position of distribution manager four months ago.
Boyle liaises with distributors Ingram Micro, ChannelWorx, Alstom IT and Firewall Systems.
As previously reported in ARN, Firewall was recently appointed to sell Trend's managed services offerings.
The appointments were a reflection of the push towards the SMB sector, where current reseller numbers of 1000 would be increased to 1500 by the year end, Burt said.
