Infoblox appoints channels head for A/NZ

15 May 2019

Infoblox, the leader in DNS, DHCP, IP address management (DDI) and secure cloud-managed network services, has appointed Kenneth Cartwright as head of channels for Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ). 

Based in Sydney, Cartwright is responsible for executing Infoblox’s channel go-to-market strategy across both countries, to support an increasing number of businesses that are adopting the company’s network control services.

 “A/NZ is an important market for Infoblox as we continue to extend our leading position in DDI and secure cloud-managed network services,” says Infoblox Asia Pacific and Japan sales vice president Hwa Cheong Wong. 

“Kenneth’s demonstrated leadership, sales and channel skills naturally align with Infoblox’s commitment to help businesses in ANZ safeguard their networks, data and applications.” 

Cartwright has over 24 years of experience in the IT channel, with a varied career across distribution, as well as infrastructure and security vendors in the UK and Australia. 

Prior to joining Infoblox, Cartwright was distribution and channel account manager for FireEye, where he managed the company’s partners across Australia. Before that, he held a variety of channel and sales roles with Aerohive Networks, Brocade Communications, Ruckus Wireless, Clarity Technology, Extricom and Azlan Group. 

“As organisations transition from legacy networks to the cloud, secure cloud-managed network services are becoming the clear way forward, bringing next-level security, reliability and automation to on-premises, cloud and hybrid networks,” says Cartwright. 

“Infoblox is committed to working with our A/NZ partners and customers in the best possible way to empower them to have advanced network control and protection without impacting their day-to-day operations.”
