Former Citrix channel boss Belinda Jurisic to head Veeam's local channel

04 Apr 17

Hard on the heels of her departure from Citrix, Belinda Jurisic has re-emerged – as Australia and New Zealand head of channel sales for Veeam.

Jurisic, who was Citrix’s ANZ channel sales manager for nearly four years, left Citrix at the end of last month ‘to pursue other opportunities’.

Those opportunities became clear this week with news Jurisic will head up Veeam’s local channel, replacing Amaury Dutilleul-Francoeur, who moves to a broader regional role for the vendor.

Jurisic says leading the ANZ channel business for Veeam was an ‘extraordinary opportunity’.

“Veeam is a disruptive company and it has taken on the challenges of rapid growth and expansion and thrived,” Jurisic says.

“More importantly, so has its channel partners.”

Don Williams, Veeam Australia and New Zealand vice president, says Jurisic’s industry leadership and depth of experience will help the vendor further strengthen its channel partners and help customers take advantage of ‘the only availability platform supporting hybrid cloud environments’.

Jurisic has more than 15 years experience in channel partner management, including senior sales and channel-centric roles for Hewlett Packard Australia’s Personal Systems Group.

Her new role will see her responsible for Veeam’s ANZ channel of more than 2,000 resellers and distributors.

She is charged with executing the ANZ channel sales strategy and driving the growth of Veeam’s ProPartner program locally.

Recent times have seen the vendor ramping up its efforts in the enterprise space, and Jurisic says she’s excited to help drive the growth opportunity for Veeam in that market.

““This will be a core focus of my new role,” she says.

“I work best in a collaborative team environment where the goal is to build a mutually profitable channel,” Jurisic adds.
