Hybrid cloud data protection, backup and storage specialists Acronis have announced the appointment of Neil Morarji as general manager for Australia and New Zealand.

Morarji will lead a growing Sydney-based Australian team, working with local partners and service providers in order to deliver the company's advanced data protection technology to customers.

Under Morarji's leadership, Acronis' Sydney-based team is expected to help channel partners with the distribution while promoting the benefits of its partner programs, which recently received a refresh.

On his appointment, Morarji says, “I'm excited to turn the company's global strategic thinking into a local execution plan and accelerate business growth in Australia and New Zealand.

“The market is mature and ready for our products. We have the best technology and we're going to build our brand by providing excellent service and fanatical support to our new and existing customers.

Morarji has over 20 years of experience in the Cloud and Digital Transformation Space and joins Acronis after serving as APJ VP for Ingram Micro's Cloud Platform Business, Odin.

During this time he drove and maintained growth across regional cloud partners and was responsible professional services and alliance management.

Prior to this, Morarji held the position of a managing director at Odin in Australia and New Zealand, responsible for building partnerships with large services providers and hosters from around the country.

Acronis Vice President for APAC and Emerging Markets Steve Goh says Neil will bring strong leadership and a wealth of experience to the Australian team

“(Neil's) market knowledge and understanding of Acronis technology is going to propel our business into the future,” Goh says.

“We're bringing the world's best data protection solutions, and with Neil's management, we'll continue to build our team and extend our presence in the region.
