Cyber security vendor Mimecast has appointed Craig McGregor as its A/NZ channel director.

The move signals McGregor’s departure from identity security vendor SailPoint after less than a year in the role of Asia Pacific channel director.

Prior to joining SailPoint in October last year, McGregor spent five months as a channel sales manager at IBM, having previously spent more than three years as the channel sales director for Check Point.

During his two-decade-long career in the channel, McGregor spent three years as national partner manager at Symantec and was A/NZ channel sales manager at Adobe for more than five years.

McGregor replaces Rema Lolas, Mimecast’s first A/NZ channel director, who left the email and data security specialist after 15 months with the company.

“I’m convinced Craig will play a key role in supporting our partner’s growth. His background and extensive networks will help our partners deliver their business plans,” said Nick Lennon, Mimecast country manager for A/NZ.

Mimecast revealed it has now grown its channel network to more than 120 partners across A/NZ, and has built up a presence in Brisbane, Perth and Auckland.

“Mimecast is investing heavily in the channel and I’m looking forward to building strong relationships with our partners,” added McGregor.

Last year, Mimecast acquired cyber security training and awareness platform, Ataata, in a bid to drive increased enablement across the market.
