Nutanix Appoints Channel Veteran David Gage As A/NZ Channel Director

Nutanix today announced the appointment of IT channel veteran David Gage as its new Australia and New Zealand Channel Director.

Based in Sydney, Gage aims to expand the Nutanix channel program across the region. He will report to Nutanix APJ Senior Director Channels & OEM, Jacob Pereira, and work closely with the local ANZ team led by Managing Director Lee Thompson.

Gage brings 25 years’ experience across a range of ANZ IT organisations. He founded distributor Express Online in 2002, which became part of Express Data and was subsequently sold to Dicker Data by parent company Dimension Data in 2014. Gage has since held senior roles at Microsoft, Westcon-Comstor, and fintech start-up CCube Integrated Wealth.

On the heels of Nutanix Elevate Partner Program, announced last month, Gage said he sees a huge opportunity for the company to strategically invest in focus partners to create new sales and technical capabilities.

“The Elevate Program, designed with ANZ partner feedback in mind, is a huge opportunity for Nutanix to demonstrate just how profitable its technology can be for local channel partners,” said Gage.

“The pandemic has led to a surge in IT investment, with the channel playing a pivotal role in solving the challenges enterprises and Government organisations face. Partners need proven, innovative technology - like Nutanix - to help them converge their datacentre, databases and now clouds, particularly as hybrid cloud becomes the environment of choice.”

Welcoming him to Nutanix, Jacob Pereira said Gage’s varied experience and unique perspective would be a huge win for Nutanix channel partners.

“David is passionate about the ANZ channel and will not only be key to driving our Elevate program in the region, but he’ll help drive our overall business and channel strategy,” said Pereira.

“His experience gives him a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities on all sides of the channel. This will help us partner more effectively and enable our partners to grow and become more profitable.”
