Security vendor, Check Point, has appointed Craig McGregor as the company’s new director of channel sales.
In his new role, McGregor will be responsible for enabling Check Point partners to increase revenue and delivery of the vendor’s cyber-threat solutions.
McGregor joins Check Point from Symantec where he was national partner manager for more than three years.
During this time, he was responsible for managing Symantec’s largest partners in the A/NZ region and incorporated business and marketing planning, executive relationship management, sales pipeline development and partner enablement.
Prior to Symantec, he held a five-year stint as channel sales manager for A/NZ at Adobe Systems, where he was responsible for all aspects of Adobe's channel and direct channel sales team management.
“We are delighted to have Craig drive our channel sales team for the Australian market. His skills and experience are highly prized in supporting our resellers and managed security service providers achieve maximum success,” Check Point Software regional managing director, David De Laine, said.
“At the same time, his knowledge and understanding of how to propel channel enablement for leading technology vendors will be highly advantageous in enabling our channel to deliver on technology that helps to differentiate and add significant value to our customers, while simultaneously maintains partner profitability and rewarding performance,” he added.
