5.     Mark Johnston (Avnet)

6.     Sean Murphy (Nexus)

7.     Belinda Ross (Citrix)

8.     Karl Sice (Staples)

9.     Nick Verykios (Distribution Central)

I look forward to working together with this great team of IT executives to achieve our shared goal of a healthy, innovative, and prosperous local IT landscape.”

Kellie Hackney, sales director, APJ, Kaseya, and CompTIA ANZ Channel Community Executive Council Vice Chair, said, “The local IT industry is poised to take the next step in its evolution and, with the help of CompTIA, embrace a new era of collaboration. I’m excited to take on the role of vice chair and help drive opportunities for the IT industry in ANZ.”

Moheb Moses, Director, Channel Dynamics and CompTIA Community Director for the ANZ Channel, said, “It’s great to have a mix of vendors, distributors and resellers represented in the new Executive Council. There is also a good balance between large and small companies, and men and women, which means we can genuinely address the needs of the community. The purpose of CompTIA in ANZ is to foster channel business development through networking and collaboration, which will be facilitated by this team of people.”

CompTIA, which launched its ANZ Channel Community in June this year, is an industry-driven group that offers technology companies an opportunity to address common concerns and pursue common goals through face-to-face and online networking opportunities, educational programs, and the development of association funded and managed initiatives.
