“Hugh’s candor and passion to keep score is a great asset and enables this team to meet and exceed goals, objectives and commitments to our employees, customers and partners,” Smyth says.
Darvall was the vendor’s APAC channel alliances manager in 2011-2012. Since then he has held several positions in the company, including director of Asia Pacific telebusiness and alliances, and major account manager.

Darvall says “As the leading global player within the software supply chain, Flexera has always been a fantastic place to work.

“Since joining the company, I’ve been able to work with Australia and New Zealand’s software developer communities, as well as some of ANZ’s leading businesses to devlop solutions that fix the dysfunctional software supply chain.

“I am excited to take on this new challenge and look forward to working with my team to continue the growth we’ve achieved in ANZ>”
