John Martens hits the ground running

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

John Martens hits the ground running
Kick-starts Australia and New Zealand operations for Zenprise – Leader in secure mobile device management


Sydney and Auckland, 21 November 2012 - Zenprise Inc. has appointed Melbourne-based John Martens as its first country manager for Australia and New Zealand. Zenprise opened for business in these markets last month.

Long well known to security conscious IT executives here, John was most recently the Pacific Region director of Zscaler Inc. for three years, following four years in senior sales and general management roles with Cisco IronPort. Earlier, he was the managing director of Data Systems International following that company’s acquisition of Group 42, which he co-founded.

Zenprise has also appointed Ashley Armitt as its first sales engineer for Australia and New Zealand. He is based in Sydney and has nine years of diverse technical consulting experience in MDM behind him, having started out with BlackBerry and worked on projects with such leading organisations as Telstra, Telecom New Zealand, Optus Australia, Fujitsu, Vodafone and Qantas.

Zenprise will announce further ANZ appointments early in the New Year.

John Martens reports that Zenprise has already concluded several sales to high profile financial, transportation and service industry companies, details of which will be announced pending buyer approvals.

“We’ve really hit the ground running,” he said. “In the few short weeks since we started here, the momentum has been little short of frantic and resellers have been quick to come on board. They see what Zenprsie can do for their customers who need to address the security issues around the rapidly growing use of mobile devices, including BYOD in mixed business and personal use environments.”

Zenprise Inc.’s channel distributors are Soft Solutions in New Zealand and Wavelink in Australia. Resellers currently number 19 across both markets.
