File transfer specialist Axway has opened a new office in Melbourne in a bid to expand its footprint in Australia and New Zealand.
The company has also appointed former Layer 7 Technologies regional sales director Colman McCaffery as new vice president, sales and operation, A/NZ to lead the aggressive push into the region.
According to a company statement, this strategic investment will strengthen Axway’s capabilities with 20 sales and technical experts in ANZ.
It now has an existing customer base of more than 100 organisations.
In his new role, McCaffery will attempt to drive sales productivity and customer satisfaction for the Axway 5 Suite in alignment with the company’s mission in Australia and New Zealand.
The Axway 5 Suite combines application integration with B2B, MFT and API management to help organisations govern the flow of data across enterprises, Cloud and mobile.
Axway chief executive Christophe Fabre said the expansion was a key step in the company’s global strategy.
“We are constantly expanding our geographical footprint to strengthen our market position and the delivery of our solutions to our customers,” he said.
“With the addition of Colman’s expertise and talent, we hope to grow our customer base in line with the clear demand for data flow governance solutions in Australia and New Zealand.
“As regional businesses take advantage of our broad portfolio, including the Axway 5 Suite, they will open themselves to new opportunities in the marketplace, giving them improved business productivity and the competitive edge in their respective fields.”
