Hybrid wide area network (WAN) provider, Silver Peak, has appointed former Juniper Networks executive Anthony Sarkis as Sales Director for A/NZ.
The new roles aims to accelerate growth and adoption of the company’s SD-WAN solution within A/NZ.
Sarkis claimed Silver Peak is in a good position to capitalise on the burgeoning SD-WAN opportunity.
“I see huge opportunities for Silver Peak in Australia and New Zealand and look forward to working with partners and customers in the region to build on our success in reducing the costs and complexity of WAN connectivity by using broadband.”
Silver Peak vice president for APAC, Doug Farndale, said, “many companies in Australia and New Zealand are eager to find ways to use the Internet to connect their users to applications and reduce their networking costs.”
“These are exciting times in the industry and specifically for Silver Peak. We are thrilled to have someone of Anthony’s experience and proven track records join our team.”
During an 18-year IT career, Sarkis spent eight years at Juniper Networks, working across channels, commercial sales, as a wireless sales specialist and looked after major accounts. Prior to this, he had stints with Aruba Networks, Tech Pacific Australia, RPM Technologies and Timelink.
