Symantec director of channel and alliances, Jeff Arndt, has left the vendor and Klasie Holtzhausen has joined as senior director of Pacific channels.
Arndt has been with Symantec since 2006 and took on the top channel job in 2011, following the departure of Steve Martin.
Holtzhausen was previously the channel director at rival security vendor, CA and has also spent six years working at IBM.
Symantec vice-president, Pacific region, Brenton Smith, said Arndt has left Symantec to pursue other opportunities.
“With Klasie’s long channel experience and background, I’m delighted he’ll be joining us," Smith said. "I’d also like to thank Jeff Arndt for all his contributions and wish him well for the future.”
CA is currently hunting for a new channel director.
