Paul Falkenstein has been named the new managing director for CA Technologies’ Australia and New Zealand business, on the back of Hope Power’s departure.
Power is leaving the company following a two-and-a-half-year stint in the MD position.
Falkenstein is tasked with driving sales, building the partner ecosystem, developing new business and managing overall operations for the company.
He will report directly to Kenneth Arredondo, president and general manager of Asia Pacific & Japan.
Falkenstein has worked for CA Technologies for 20 years and was most recently the chairman of CA Japan where he grew CA’s footprint in this important market. Before this, he was vice president, Customer Portfolio Management, Asia Pacific & Japan.
“ANZ is a key market for CA and huge emphasis is placed on providing great solutions that help our customers thrive in the application economy,” Arredondo says.
“We are very fortunate to have seen strong leadership in Hope who has been the driving force behind our local business and I want to thank her for her commitment beyond her contracted two-year period,” he adds.
“As she hands the baton to Paul, I am confident he will continue her good work. With his experience managing different countries, cultures and business models, Paul brings a wealth of experience to his new role in ANZ,” says Arredondo.
Falkenstein said, “Australia and New Zealand are mature markets and my focus as I take on this new role will be to help guide our customers on their digital transformation journeys and to provide them with Security, DevOps and Agile Management solutions.
“I’m confident that our strong heritage and credentials will allow CA to continue to make great in-roads in ANZ,” he says.
