DNX Solutions appoints Leading AWS Executive for Sales Manager Role
Wed, 12th Jul 2023

Sydney-based cloud solutions provider, DNX Solutions, has marked a significant stride in its expansion plans with the appointment of former AWS executive Salman Rahman as the Sales Manager for Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ). This follows the company's achievement of becoming an AWS Premier Tier Services Partner, a distinction held by a select few in Australia.

"The Premier status was one of the reasons for my decision to join DNX Solution," Rahman confesses, who has just wrapped up a fruitful six-year tenure at AWS, climaxing with a nearly two-year run as Mid-Market/SMB Sales Leader. Prior to AWS, he was involved with AWS cloud solutions at Telstra.

In his new position, Rahman will report directly to DNX Solutions Co-Founder and CEO Helder Klemp, taking over A/NZ sales responsibilities that until now fell under Klemp's ambit. This handover enables Klemp to direct more of his time towards overarching company strategy.

Rahman will be in charge of augmenting the business footprint in A/NZ, interacting directly with a diverse customer base from Startups, SMBs to Enterprises, with his gaze fixed on security, compliance, migration, application, and data modernisation.

Kicking off his tenure, Rahman is tasked with strategising the growth of new segments and verticals in ANZ and Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) for the forthcoming financial year, thus fuelling the company's quest for continued global expansion.

This major announcement comes at a time when the bond between DNX Solutions and AWS is becoming increasingly robust. The cloud solutions provider has clinched several partner awards with AWS over the past 12 months, demonstrating their strong mutual growth.
