Former Sun Microsystems country manager Rod Severn has joined Maxnet as sales director.
Severn was NZ country manager for Sun from 2002 until August 2004, and previously held roles with Sun in Australia. He returned to Australia after leaving the NZ country manager role, becoming New South Wales state manager until last year, when he left Sun.
His time as NZ country manager coincided with Sun changing its local channel model, when it ended its relationship with SolNet Holdings, the former exclusive agent for Sun in New Zealand.
He has also held roles with FujiXerox, CA and Memorex Telex during his career.
