Cloudian has named Evan Duryea as channel director for Australia and New Zealand, ASEAN and Oceania, tasked with expanding the company’s footprint in the market.

Duryea holds more than 20 years’ experience in the sector, co-founding IT consulting firm Thomas Duryea in 2000, which was acquired by Logicalis in 2015.

Duryea said he would draw from his consultancy experience to drive the company’s growth in the region.


“I’ve sat on the other side of the channel table for decades, and I’ve seen the good and bad of how vendors approach and work with the channel,” he said.

“Partner experience is too often missing from vendor channel managers’ CVs, and I’m looking forward to leveraging it for my role and expanding Cloudian’s channel presence and depth across the region.”

Meanwhile, Cloudian has also appointed Anna Christensen as A/NZ and ASEAN head of marketing, and Sydney-based Norman Joe as A/NZ regional sales manager.

These appointments follow Cloudian’s receipt of a number of commercial deals in the region, including partnerships with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Veeam, VMware, and WEKA.

“Cloudian is solving major challenges for businesses and government organisations across the region, including fast-accelerating data demand and an immediate need to recalibrate where and how data is stored,” said James Wright, Cloudian’s regional director for A/NZ, ASEAN, and Oceania.

“The depth of IT and channel experience Evan, Anna, and Norman bring to the table will be a catalyst for Cloudian and its partners’ continued growth and success in the region as we work to meet customers’ evolving data management and protection needs.

“We’ll also continue our recruitment drive across the region over the next year.”
