LAN Systems has extended its reach further into the ACT, opening a new branch office in Canberra.
The company has appointed David Smith as ACT business development manager and is hiring a new sales team for the area.
"David has a sound background in defence and strategic consulting," said LAN Systems group general manager Nick Verykios. "So he will be able to support our Canberra customers well beyond normal distribution services.
"We recognise that there are a lot of opportunities in Canberra," he added.
Although LAN Systems already operates in the ACT, the area was previously serviced from the distributor's Sydney office. The move brings it into a market typically serviced by the likes of Tech Pacific and Express Data.
The new office will provide resellers with face-to-face support, faster order processing and greater sales and technical support, according to the company.
