Scroggie exits Symantec
- 29 May, 2012 22:00
Symantec's managing director Craig Scroggie is leaving the company and Brenton Smith will be appointed ANZ MD, the security vendor has announced.
Symantec says Scroggie has chosen to "pursue some of his other business interests outside of the company".
Smith, who now steps up as MD, joined the company a year ago as vice president for the Symantec.cloud business across Asia Pacific and Japan, based in Singapore.
He has 20 years’ experience in the IT industry having held a number of senior leadership roles at a range of multinational firms including BusinessObjects, Siebel Systems, Brightstar Information Technology Group and SAP. Prior to joining Symantec, Smith was managing director for CA Technologies in Australia and New Zealand.
“Brenton brings a wealth of experience to this role,” says Bernard Kwok, senior vice president, Asia Pacific and Japan. “Most recently Brenton has been leading the highly successful Symantec.cloud business which has helped thousands of customers right across the Asia Pacific and Japan markets move with confidence and ease to the cloud. With his great wisdom and hands-on approach I look forward to this next chapter of Symantec in Australia and New Zealand under Brenton’s leadership.”
“I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Craig for everything he has contributed over his years at Symantec. We wish him all the best for his future endeavours,” adds Kwok.
Bjorn Engelhardt will assume the lead of the Symantec.cloud organisation, as part of the Asia Pacific and Japan Strategic Sales group. Additionally, the Asia Pacific and Japan Channels and SMB portfolios which were recently added to Smith's remit will be led in the interim by Kwok.
