Melbourne-based distributor, Multimedia Technologies (MMT), has hired Michael Johnson as its new general manager of sales and marketing.
Johnson previously spent six years with TR Corporation where he was the general manager of TR Telecom, a company that was later bought out by Lan 1.
In his new role, Johnson will focus on organic growth for the distributor by looking at ways to extend its partner program and educating resellers on the vendors it represents in the market.
“We haven’t clearly defined what areas of the business we want to grow, but one of the things Multimedia has been renowned for is the success we have in the SMB space,” Johnson said. “When you’re strong at something, you might as well build on those strengths for that growth rather than focus on your weaknesses and forgetting about the strong parts of your business.
“We have three tiers of vendors in our company and we’ll focus on our top tier vendors that have a strong recognition in the Australian market that we want to become their number one distributor for.”
In April MMT appointed Graeme Reardon as its new NSW state manager. Reardon was previously the managing director of Linksys Australia.
