Dimension Data Australia boss departs; Steve Nola returns to top local role

18 Aug 2016

Dimension Data Australia boss Rodd Cunico is stepping down, with Steve Nola returning to the top local job.

Nola headed up Dimension Data Australia until mid-2011, when he took up a global role as group executive of Dimension Data’s ItaaS business.

Cunico, who has been chief executive officer in the five years since Nola’s departure, will exit the top job at the end of this financial year on September 30. He has been with Dimension Data for 19 years, in a variety of roles including as its Victorian videoconferencing manager, Victorian manager of managed services, Victorian State manager and Southern Region manager.

No reason was given for Cunico’s departure and both Cunico and Nola are unavailable for comment, Dimension Data says.

Dimension Data says Nola and Cunico will meet with employees, partners and clients over the next six weeks of transition period.
