Liferay, the enterprise open source portal software company, has appointed a new general manager of Australia and New Zealand, with the aim of ‘ramping-up’ operations.

In his new role as general manager of Liferay Australia, Adrian Johnson will oversee the Australian and New Zealand markets and work to build on the success achieved in the region to date.

"Adrian has a strong track record of delivering innovative and effective leadership in Australia, Asia and the United States. We are very pleased to have Adrian join the Liferay team to not only scale the business but foster a strong Liferay culture locally,” says Brian Endo, Liferay VP Asia Pacific.

Johnson joins Liferay from Code42 where he was managing director. Prior to Code42 he held leadership positions at Dell, Fuji Xerox and Sun Microsystems. He started his career as an ifficer in the Royal Australian Navy.

 Johnson will be focused on expanding the business within Australia and New Zealand by leveraging Liferay’s partnerships and the user community, plus, developing the local team.

“My role at Liferay will be to focus on the practical undertakings that can grow our operations and build upon the success the team has achieved in Australia and New Zealand,” he says.

“In addition to sales growth Liferay is passionate about impacting local communities in a positive way so I’ll be working on how we can make a difference in combination with the existing Liferay Australia team,” Johnson says.
