The company has appointed DJ Lamba to lead a substantial expansion in New Zealand.
As the Country Manager for NZ and Islands, based in Auckland, he is tasked with building the NZ team, creating long-lasting partnerships with the local reseller channel, and advancing business.
Lamba has a track record of driving business in the IT security, telephony, networking, and business continuity sectors.
During 13 years in the NZ tech industry, he has gained experience and built relationships in working with organisations including Vodafone, Digicor, Soft Solutions and Westcon. Earlier, for six years, he led B2B, channel and vendor relationships internationally.
Netpoleon distributes market-leading data security solutions in the APAC and Australian regions, and Lamba sees this as an ideal time to expand New Zealand Business.
"We are investing in the NZ operation, and I am looking to grow Netpoleon's market share through existing vendor partners in addition to acquiring new vendor partners," Lamba says.
"I believe in the channel-first mindset. It is important to engage and work closely with our channel partners to realise their business potential, help them grow and provide the best suited solutions to our joint customers."
Lamba said that in a post-Covid world, most of the workforce is becoming hybrid, and it is essential to ensure that the workforce remains connected and can work securely anywhere.
"This presents a great opportunity for Kiwi businesses to relook at their network infrastructure and security posture and Netpoleon can help with that through our integrated security and networking vendor solutions."
