Riverbed has appointed Former Females in IT Chair, Terrie Anderson, as its first regional sales director for Australia and New Zealand.
Anderson has more than 20 years experience in the IT industry with companies including Symantec, RSA and Cisco.
Most recently, she held the role of vice president Asia Pacific sales for software authentication platform, Entrust.
Riverbed regional vice president, Ian Raper, said the position was a new role which reflected Riverbed’s ongoing success throughout Australia and New Zealand.
He said the company had experienced a number of major client wins across both countries which was underscored by the expansion of Riverbed’s Australian headquarters, relocating from North Sydney to larger offices in the heart of Sydney late last year.
“Terrie’s extensive experience in both the development and leadership of global sales teams will be invaluable as more companies turn to us to help them take advantage of the benefits the hybrid enterprise has to offer,” he said.
“She is extremely well respected in both the Australian and New Zealand IT industries and will play a pivotal role as we continue build on our recent successes.”
