Emerson ramps up ANZ push with new managing director

02 Nov 15

Emerson Network Power has bolstered its Australia and New Zealand management, with the promotion of Robert Linsdell as managing director for the local business.

The appointment of Linsdell – who has been director of national sales for the vendor since 2014 – comes as the company continues an aggressive push into the region.

Linsdell is charged with the development, coordination and execution of key programs for the ANZ market.

Earlier this year the company appointed Mo Kandeel as its ANZ channel director. The company also signed Distribution Central as a distributor, marking an evolving partner focus for the vendor locally, as it seeks a broader partner base.

Linsdell says he’s ‘very optimistic about future growth opportunities’ in Emerson Network Power’s channel business.

“In particular, I am very excited about our new partner acquisition program that now gives us a solid footprint across Australia and New Zealand, which ultimately enables us to reach out to a broader partner and reseller community,” he says.

Linsdell says the enterprise business continues to be a very important part of Emerson’s business.

“Internet of things is changing the way our customers operate, which means they need IT infrastructure that is agile, scalable, but more importantly solutions that provide them a competitive advantage.”

Anand Sanghi, Emerson Network Power Asia president, says Linsdell has been driving the ANZ sales team for more than a year as national sales director and ‘his vision and programs have solidified Emerson’s position as the industry leader in providing holistic solutions for critical infrastructure’.

“In this new position, I am confident that Robert will continue what he has started and lead Emerson’s development efforts as we continue to bring our technologies and solutions to address our customers’ unique demands,” Sanghi says.
