Acronis: ANZ Appoints Second Business Development Manager

Acronis, a leading provider of easy-to-use disaster recovery and data protection solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today announced the appointment of Mark Weinstein to the newly created position of Southern Region Business Development Manager.

Weinstein’s role is to capture the increasing interest in the Acronis product range, particularly in the SME marketplace, and work closely with his territory’s partners and sales teams to identify opportunities, manage sales campaigns and promotions, and close new business.

His arrival will enhance service capacity levels to Acronis channel partners across Australia and New Zealand, whose numbers have increased significantly in the past two years.

From a 12 year career in sales and account management in South Africa, Weinstein joined ASI Solutions as Corporate Sales Manager on his arrival in Australia in 2009. He was most recently Business Development Manager at Brennan IT.

He will share regional responsibilities with Chris Braithwaite who joined the company in late 2010 to drive sales across the region. The territory split will see Mark’s Southern Region as south of Sydney Harbour NSW, Victoria, SA, WA and New Zealand. Chris’ Northern Region is north of Sydney Harbour NSW, ACT and Queensland.

Karl Sice, General Manager, Pacific at Acronis said: “We see this move as both an investment to grow the business and also a resource to support the considerable levels of enquiry resulting from the recent announcement of Acronis Backup & Recovery(r) 11.”
