Westcon Financial Services has opened its first office in Australia, as the company looks to strengthen its support of its customers’ growth potential.
Mark Hegarty has been named as director for the Australian and New Zealand operations, tasked with leading the company’s business strategy and operations, while at the same time managing and delivering its financial solutions and products portfolio for Westcon-Comstor's Australian and New Zealand customers, partners, and manufacturers.
Based in Sydney, Hegarty will report directly to Westcon Financial Services managing director, London-based Christian Roelofs
"Mark brings a great deal of industry and financial services experience to the Australian operations," Roelofs says.
"He is ideally suited to help us expand both our team and product offering in a rapidly changing marketplace."
Hegarty has more than 25 years' experience in the financial services industry, working recently for CNH Industrial Capital as national sales manager and, prior, as managing director of Future Finance Corporation.
"Investment decisions are no longer about lease versus buy, and Westcon Financial Services can provide creative and innovative financial solutions tailored to today's 'Everything-as-a-Service' business model," Hegarty says.
Roelofs says the company is in a unique position to provide Australian and New Zealand partners and customers with an integrated offering from the beginning of the engagement.
"The expansion of the team signals a strong commitment to the international financial services business,” he says.
“We now have a foundation across core geographies to accelerate the strategic objective of providing Westcon-Comstor customers with financial solutions that enable a genuine competitive advantage.”
