Company Names New Channel Executives to Support Regional Efforts
Islandia, N.Y and Sydney, April 4, 2012 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announces a new channel partnership with Value Added Distributor (VAD), Westcon Group. Under the new agreement, Westcon Group will have access to distribute a broad range of CA Technologies enterprise solutions to its customers in Australia.
Specialising in delivering unified communications, network infrastructure, data centre and security solutions, Westcon creates unique programs and provides financial and technical support for its partners. Among Westcon partners are such leading vendors as Cisco, Avaya, Emerson Network Power, F5 Networks, McAfee and Riverbed.
“This announcement further demonstrates our commitment to the channel in this market,” states Klasie Holtzhausen, senior director, Channel, CA Technologies Australia & New Zealand. “Over the coming months, we will work with Weston Group to help develop a strategy to better equip its sales force to reach both existing and potential new customers.”
