He joins the company with more than 25 years’ experience in the IT industry and was previously an account director at NSC Group, where he was responsible for new business development for the organisation’s range of contact centre and unified communications solutions targeting government and large enterprises.
Reid previously worked as sales director at workforce management software specialist, GMT Asia Pacific.
Prior to that, he held sales management positions at AAP, Callscan, Touchbase, Inchcape Telecommunications and Avaya Communications.
Kathy Murphy also joins Interactive Intelligence as Territory Manager for Victoria based in Melbourne. Equipped with more than 20 years of sales experience in ICT at management, vendor, application and operational levels, Murphy was most recently a principal consultant at Scotwork Negotiating Skills.

Interactive Intelligence vice president Australia, New Zealand and Japan, Brendan Maree, said Kath and Les brought proven ability in new business development.
