IGEL appoints Brendan Lillis to the role of Regional Sales and Business Manager responsible for Southern states of Australia
IGEL, a world leader in endpoint management software for the secure enterprise, has announced the appointment of experienced enterprise mobility operative Brendan Lillis to the newly-created role of Regional Sales Manager Southern Region, as well as representing IGEL in the Northern Territory (VIC/TAS/SA/WA/NT). Lillis has been with IGEL for 12 months, working in a pre-sales capacity. The move reflects IGEL’s rapid growth in the region, following the October 2015 decision to move the company’s APAC headquarters to Sydney and a recent restructure to focus on IGEL’s endpoint management software. Significant new partnerships and an increased presence in the channel have also consolidated the company’s position in ANZ, with reported sales for 2016 doubling those of the previous year. A new focus on software thin clients, virtual desktop working environments and mobility is driving IGEL’s success, with the mature market for VDI in Australia a major factor behind recent sales. “Brendan has joined us at a time when the company is responding to market demand for virtual workspaces, and has quickly established his strong credentials in delivering enterprise-ready solutions. His contacts and abilities are first-rate, so we are now harnessing those technical skills and that experience, and moving him into the field to better facilitate the growth that the market is demanding of us,” said Marc Doehnert, Regional Manager for ANZ at IGEL. Lillis arrives at IGEL from Insentra, where he was the company’s Principal Consultant. He has extensive experience working in the enterprise mobility market in Australia, having spent six years at Citrix as a senior consultant before moving to enterprise mobility specialists Experteq. Lillis has also held senior roles at Diaxion and has attained certification as a Citrix Associate – Networking (CCA-N). “It is a very exciting time to work with a far-sighted, cutting-edge company like IGEL. We are finding that a lot of customers have dormant hardware, once they decide to move to a cloud ecosystem. Using our UDC software means that legacy devices can be incorporated into the same network as the company’s new thin and zero hardware, so a deployment can be managed in stages. This extends the life of existing hardware, which saves everyone money,” said Lillis.
