New channel boss to drive Veritas growth

09 Nov 15

Veritas, fresh from its split with Symantec, has appointed George Wong as its Asia Pacific and Japan channel boss as the company seeks increased customer reach and market scale across the region.

Wong, who has 25 years experience in the technology sector, is charged with 'conceptualising and leading the APJ channel strategy' to drive those increases.

Veritas says Wong will also be focused on developing and nurturing an ecosystem of trusted partners to build capabilities in delivering solutions covering backup and recovery, business continuity, software-defined storage and information governance.

Prior to joining Veritas, Wong was with Oracle as group vice president, responsible for business development and partnership functions.

Mark Nutt, Veritas global head of channel, says the company is ‘poised for growth’ and looking to capitalise on positive momentum.

Wong says partners are the biggest lever for growth.

“We are committed to the partner community through empowerment, recognition and reward,” Wong adds.

“I am certain that we will be able to further develop and build on the quality partnerships we already have in place to establish ourselves as the top information management company to work with,” he says.
