F5 Networks managing director, Tony Bill, and channel sales manager, Tanya Lord, have both left the company.
Lord confirmed to ARN that she had left F5, but would not comment any further while details are being formalised.
She had been with F5 since only March this year, after joining from Dell where she had been for the previous six years.
ARN was unable to get a hold of Bill or F5 Networks' SVP/GM for APAC, Emmanuel Bonassie, at the time of going to press, but an official statement from F5 Networks reads:
“Tony Bill, Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) at F5 Networks, has today announced his decision to step down from his current position, to pursue other opportunities and challenges.
"During his tenure, Tony’s leadership has played an integral role in sustaining F5’s strong momentum in the ANZ market. In particular, Tony has been instrumental in driving continued revenue growth, as well as expanding F5’s ANZ customer base.
"We wish Tony all the very best in his next endeavour and thank him for his huge contribution over the past year. While a search for Tony's replacement is firmly underway, Emmanuel Bonnaisse, Senior Vice President in Asia Pacific at F5 Networks, will oversee all commercial operations on behalf of F5 in ANZ."
Bill joined F5 in November last year. Prior to this role, he spent more than a decade in numerous positions at HP, including that of A/NZ Personal Systems Group vice-president and general manager. He is credited with growing the vendor’s sales revenue five-fold during the tenure.
