Network monitoring specialist, Paessler AG, has made two key appointments to strengthen the company’s market position within the Asia-Pacific region.
George Wilson has been appointed as senior sales manager for A/NZ operations and Adrian Lau will be senior sales manager for Asia, where he is primarily responsible for creating new revenue streams in Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan.
Both based in Sydney, Wilson and Lau will collaborate closely on reinforcing the company’s overall growth strategy to further expand its footprint across Asia-Pacific.
Prior to Paessler, Wilson held business development and channel-focused roles with Arrow ECS and Anixter in Australia for two years and five years respectively.
“I am thrilled to be part of such a dynamic team and definitely look forward to fortifying Paessler’s growth strategy from here. A/NZ are both markets that are unique and filled with massive potential. I am glad to be given the opportunity to play a role in strengthening Paessler’s partnerships across the region, as we look to help our customers exploit and harness the disruptions we are seeing in the digital space,” he said.
Lau joins the company armed with global expertise in the channel having amassed eight years in sales management and a decade’s worth of consultative experience in the industry. Prior to Paessler, he served in various roles at Avaya, Cisco Systems and Lucent Technologies.
“I look forward to working with a talented and passionate team as we further our mission to help customers alleviate issues related to network availability and performance, so they can focus on more value-added activities that can better drive innovation and growth for themselves,” Lau added.
Paessler chief operating officer, Christian Twardawa, said Wilson and Lau bring a wealth of experience in the regional reseller ecosystem, as well as a depth of knowledge in understanding and resolving customer’s business issues.
“These two new appointments demonstrate our commitment to the Asia-Pacific market, and we are assured the team is well-poised to drive the company’s ambitious regional growth strategy from here on.
"I am confident that Wilson and Lau’s well-rounded background in the channel, coupled with their results-driven and customer-centric approach, will contribute to Paessler’s vision of continuing to provide innovative monitoring to organisations,” he mentioned.
