ICT solutions and services provider, Dimension Data, has promoted Peter Prowse to the global role of group vice-president of strategic partnerships. Prowse was formerly the company’s Australia datacentre business unit general manager.
As a result of his promotion, the company has named Nathan Vandenberg as its datacentre business unit general manager.
In this role, Vandenberg will work with organisations to deliver business outcomes through optimisation of the design, implementation and management of all aspects of datacentre infrastructure, from storage and virtualisation to back-up and recovery.
Prior to Vandenberg’s promotion, he was the national manager for Dimension Data’s datacentre business unit, and led a team of sales people, architects, consultants and engineers responsible for expanding the datacentre business.
Dimension Data Australia CEO, Rodd Cunico, said when Vandenberg joined Dimension Data six years ago, it was clear he would be a future leader within the business.
“One of the top competitive issues facing organisations today is the need to become an agile, digital business. Nathan understands the journey our clients are taking, and that optimising IT muscle in the datacentre not only overcomes complexity and reduces cost, but is a critical aspect in a successful transformation.”
The company has also named Ed Phillips as its end-user computing business unit general manager.
In this role, Phillips will lead Dimension Data’s enterprise mobility and workspace productivity strategies. He will also work with clients on the benefits of a modern user-centric workspace, including end-user experience and environmental sustainability, as well as efficient service delivery options.
A key part of his role will be to help clients quantify and address the implications that transformation projects have on IT infrastructure, security, compliance and governance.
Cunico said Phillips has been a key member of Dimension Data’s leadership team since joining the business in 2010. He most recently held the role of NSW solutions manager.
“Since 2010, Ed has played a critical role in educating and navigating our clients through a disruptive time in the technology industry,” Cunico said.
“The wave of digital transformation initiatives sweeping Australia relies heavily upon rethinking not just how technology enables the end-user to work differently, but also requires an attitudinal shift to ensure organisations boost their innovation and productivity credentials. Ed’s expertise will be an invaluable resource to our clients looking to make this shift.”
