US-based IT management software vendor, SolarWinds, has opened its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Brisbane.
The local office will provide sales and customer support as well as services for the Asia-Pacific region. Doug Hibberd, who was formerly SolarWinds’ global research and development team staffer has stepped up to become the company’s general manager in Australia.
A development team will be on the ground to focus on localising the vendor’s products in a bid to enter new markets in the region.
According to SolarWinds, it chose Brisbane as a hub for broadening its partner opportunities.
"Brisbane was a clear choice for us," Hibberd said. "The team we are building in Brisbane will be tasked with several priorities in the coming 12 months from supporting the continued expansion of our presence in region, to preparing our product suite for entrance into new markets.
“We believe that this community has the talent pool and local support needed to help us achieve our goals."
