Landesk brings in fresh blood to fuel momentum in ANZ

07 May 2015

Landesk has appointed a new ANZ territory sales manager to fuel ‘robust demand’ for the vendor’s solutions from customers and partners.

In his new role, Adam Blue will be based in Sydney and will be responsible for continuing to develop Landesk’s business in enterprise markets.

He will leverage more than 15 years of executive sales leadership and major account management expertise to drive channel and direct sales engagements supporting Landesk’s growth in the region, the company said in a statement.   Blue joins Landesk from Oracle. Over the course of five years, he held several roles within the company, including data integration specialist and NSW territory manager.

During this time, he held responsibility for new business development, enterprise sales, and partner enablement.

Prior to this, Blue worked for three years as business development and partner manager at Ingram Micro, where he was responsible for supporting the organisation’s HP enterprise servers and storage solutions across New South Wales, Queensland and the Australian Capital Territory.  

He was also previously strategic account manager at NSC Enterprise Solutions. Here he managed revenue streams within the organisation’s contact centre and IP telephony business.

Nigel Seddon, Landesk regional sales director, says, “Adam joins us at a time when we are seeing robust demand for Landesk systems, security, service, asset and mobility management solutions in Australia and New Zealand from both customers and partners.  

“He has had exceptional success throughout his career in generating new business and exceeding sales targets and we are very excited to have him apply this experience expanding our organisational footprint across Australia and New Zealand.”

Blue also held international sales management and business development roles, working in the UK channel at both Insight Direct and MicroWarehouse UK.

Landesk has customers across multiple industry sectors in Australia and New Zealand - including retail, education, public sector and financial services - and sells through channel partners and hardware vendors.
