Former Enterasys man to head ANZ expansion at Extreme Networks

11 Feb 14

Extreme Networks has appointed John Gonzalez as Country Manager for Australia and New Zealand, who was formerly the ANZ Manager of Enterasys Networks, which was acquired by Extreme Networks in November 2013.

Prior to that Gonzalez was the ANZ Sales Director for Enterasys, looking after the company’s Technical teams.

Starting with Enterasys in 2000 as a Pre-Sales Engineer based in Perth, Gonzalez then moved to Sales and managing the Western territory (WA, SA and NT).

Before joining Enterasys, Gonzalez was a freelance consultant for three years and earlier worked for WANG Computers for 10 years in several different roles.

“Extreme Networks’ acquisition of Enterasys Networks presents exciting opportunities in Australia and New Zealand," Gonzalez says.

"Our combined portfolio spans data centre networking, switching and routing, software-defined networking (SDN), wired and wireless LAN access, network management and security.

“We have begun to leverage the broader solutions portfolio in ANZ to augment offerings and service to existing and new customers.

"Extreme Networks is continuing to enhance and support the product roadmaps of both companies going forward, to protect the investments of customers and avoid any disruption to their businesses.”

Extreme Networks will begin its expansion in ANZ with the early addition of a Business Development Manager and an additional Channel Accounts Manager.
