Mindjet opens Sydney office, makes key appointments
Business collaboration software vendor, Mindjet has announced the opening of a new Sydney office, as well as key promotions and new staff hires in Australia in preparation for anticipated demand increase for its products in 2012 throughout the region.
The vendor has experienced over 20 per cent year-over-year growth with more than 700 Australian customers, a number which it projects will increase beyond 1000 companies in 2012 for an anticipated 50 per cent growth.
“Over the past 12 months, we’ve increased our number of strategic partnerships in this region,” Mindjet senior director for APAJ, Cameron Ackbury, said. “As a result, we’ve seen impressive company growth which we expect to accelerate with additional resources including our new office, an increased sales and marketing headcount and new value-added reseller partnerships and licensing models.”
Increased activity has been supported by the recent promotion of Uwe Richter to international vice-president and general manager. Richter is responsible for overseeing business growth in APAJ and EMEA.
Additionally, Mindjet has made three regional appointments. Daniel Sims joins the vendor as APAJ marketing manager, and will drive its local marketing strategy.
Daniel Keegan is filling the role of enterprise account executive, with responsibility for expanding the company’s local business and broadening top tier enterprise clients. Lastly, Sim Shah has been appointed as corporate account executive with a focus on developing Mindjet’s local client base.
