New channel sales manager for ANZ

SYDNEY, February 5, 2010 – Tandberg Data, the global supplier of data protection solutions, has announced the appointment of Paul O’Connell as Channel Sales Manager, Australia and New Zealand.

His most recent role was Business Development Manager for Nortel products at Westcon and Anixter. Some five years’ experience have given him key insights into the business models of distributors and resellers, which he intends to leverage.

Paul said: “My priority with Tandberg Data is to work with key distributors and resellers, and where applicable end users, to help drive the business in Australia and New Zealand and to continue building on the company’s strengths in the small to medium business (SMB) market.”
