Dell Boomi hires ex-HPE talent as local managing director

26 Oct 2017

Dell Boomi (Boomi) has appointed Nicholas Lambrou as managing director for Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).

The company says the appointment reflects their continued expansion in local markets, where they report significant uptake of the Dell Boomi solution.

As head of the local operation, Lambrou will provide governance to drive revenue and customer adoption in A/NZ.

Lambrou joins Boomi with almost 30 years’ experience in the A/NZ technology industry, most recently completing a 17-year tenure with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), where he held several senior roles across its consumer, SMB and enterprise businesses.

His time at HPE was preceded by similar positions at Gateway, NetComm and Lexmark International RS.

On his appointment, Lambrou says, “Having spent a long period at HPE, I was looking to become part of a company that is innovative and operates within a market that has a strong growth trajectory.”

“Boomi not only fits this description, but it challenges the norm in the integration space by delivering a modern, cloud-based approach to a market accustomed to traditional middleware,” he says.

“Over the next three months, my focus will be on observing the local business, reviewing our operating relationship with customers and partners, and driving our strategy to enhance the value Boomi delivers to those clients.”

Lambrou reports to Michael Evans, managing director for the Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) region, whose responsibilities include continuing regional growth and replicating the company’s A/NZ success across South East Asia and Japan.

Evans says Lambrou’s appointment will help drive Boomi drive further success in this region.

“Boomi’s growth in the A/NZ region has been driven by this market’s general acceptance that digital transformation is critical to business performance, and acknowledgement that technologies like Boomi are essential to these programs’ success,” he says.

“Nicholas’ experience and understanding of the A/NZ market will be invaluable in helping us continue our momentum and expand our footprint in the region.”

Boomi provides cloud integration and workflow automation software, driving their organisational goal to ‘build the connected business’.

The company has continued investing in regional resources, tripling its headcount in the last 12 months with the intent to further double the APJ team by the end of 2018.
