Louis Tague takes top ANZ role at Veritas

28 Apr 2016

Vertias has promoted Louis Tague to the top ANZ role of managing director for the information management vendor.

Tague will spearhead business development initiatives across Australia and New Zealand, capitalising on market opportunities to deliver next-generation information management solutions to partners and customers.

Tague, who has more than 15 years of IT experience, was previously a sales director with Veritas. His involvement in the company began in 2004, when he joined Veritas as an account manager.

He has since held a number of roles at Veritas and Symantec, following Veritas’ 2005 merger with Symantec, including director national enterprise partners and director of enterprise sales.

Previous roles include senior positions at Computer Associates and IBM.

Chris Lin, Veritas senior vice president for Asia Pacific and Japan, says Tague’s strong experience in the financial services sector and proven track record wll help accelerate Vertias’ scope and expand the company’s scale.

“Under Louis’ leadership, the team is well positioned to capitalise on this positive momentum by helping businesses defy the data deluge they are facing today,” Lin says.

Tague says there is ‘tremendous potential’ for Veritas to contribute to ANZ’s digital transformation into the knowledge economy.

“There’s an enormous opportunity to deepen our customer relationships in both the enterprise and commercial markets and strengthen our partner ecosystem as Veritas is committed to driving greater business productivity for our customers.

In February, Veritas’ Pacific region managing director Paul Simos left the company to take up a role as EMC’s Victorian enterprise and government sales director.
