Data management and storage vendor, Veritas Technologies, has hired former Brennan IT consulting and services general manager, Luke McLean, as its new director of consulting services in the Pacific.
The move for McLean comes after roughly three years at Brennan IT, most recently as a member of the senior leadership team, where he was responsible for leading combined teams of approximately 160 people across managed services, project services and IT services.
McLean has also done time at Thomas Duryea Consulting - before the company's acquisition by Logicalis in 2015 - as NSW general manager, and has previously held the role of Asia Pacific services director at Insight.
In his new role with Veritas, McLean will be responsible for leading the consulting services team in the Pacific region and drive bookings for all of the vendor's services offerings.
"As the newly appointed lead of the Veritas Consulting Services team in the Pacific region, my priority is to grow and lead the business to maturity through scaling out our internal consulting capacity and capability, as well as continuing the path to invest and effectively leverage our partner ecosystem," McLean told ARN in a statement.
"Our goal is to ensure that our customers comprehensively leverage and achieve a true return on their investments in Veritas technologies."
McLean's appointment comes roughly two years after Symantec revealed it would sell Veritas to an investor group led by The Carlyle Group for US$8 billion amid an increased focus on security.
Now, as a relatively new independent private company, McLean said that the vendor's focus is on continuing to strengthen its brand through the ongoing development of its core and emerging products.
For its part, Brennan IT has made some changes to the role McLean stepped out of at the end of June, merging the position under the newly created role of chief operating officer, to which Dayle Wilson has recently been appointed.
"As we strive towards our purpose of making our clients lives easier, the COO will support this strategy by providing a seamless customer experience across all products and services," Brennan IT CEO, Stephen Sims, told ARN.
"By providing consistency in delivery and a single point of contact for all client issues we will be better aligned to our customers and the outcomes they want to achieve."
In July, Brennan IT revealed it was gearing up to hit new heights after breaking through the $100 million revenue mark in its 20th year of operation.
To reach these growth targets, the technology provider said it is focusing on optimising and future-proofing its own IT infrastructure, as well as developing the services and solutions portfolio in line with the customer needs.
