Symantec Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) SMB and channels vice president, David Dzienciol, will be leaving the security vendor after working there for 13 years in various roles.
Symantec APJ public relations group manager, Debbie Sassine, said Dzienciol will leave Symantec at the end of April to pursue a “new career opportunity”.
“He was instrumental in building the channels, global strategic partners, telecommunications and the SMB business across the region,” she said.
“We would like to thank David for his contributions and wish him all the best for the future.”
Former CA Technologies managing director and current Symantec.cloud Asia-Pacific and Japan vice-president, Brenton Smith, will now take over the reigns of the APJ channels, global strategic partners (GSP), and SMB business while still heading up Symantec’s Cloud business.
Symantec is entrusting Smith with the duties based on his past experience with the channel, as well as having built a partner strategy for Symantec.cloud as part of his current role.
“Brenton has delivered exceptional results for the Symantec.cloud business and we are confident he will continue the strong momentum that David has built in our channels, GSP, telecommunications and SMB business,” Sassine said.
While Dzienciol was based in Hong Kong for his position, Smith will remain based in Singapore despite the expanded role.
The role of Symantec APJ channels and alliances director, Jeff Arndt, will remain unchanged and he will continue to head up the channel business in Australia and New Zealand.
“The channel and the SMB market remain vitally important for Symantec’s growth strategy in the Pacific region, and Jeff will focus on continuing to grow strong relationships with our channel partners and build a highly successful channels team,” Sassine said.
