Based in Melbourne, Milionis is responsible for leading Zscaler’s ANZ channels go-to-market strategy with a focus on growth strategies. He will focus on enhancing partnerships with managed service partners, value added resellers, and systems integration alliance vendors in enabling secure cloud transformation for customers across commercial, enterprise, and public sector market segments.

Milionis joins Zscaler with more than 25 years of experience working in the enterprise IT, telecommunications, and consulting sectors across business development, channel partner enablement, and sales management programs.

Most recently, Milionis was ANZ enterprise channel director at Forcepoint, where he assisted partners to create differentiated services and support the development of profitable cyber practices. Prior to this, he was Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) channel director at Riverbed Technology during which time he worked with partners and distributors to drive mutually successful commercial outcomes. Milionis was also previously head of sales at Sinefa, principal of consulting and advisory company at Strategic Capital Partners, and also worked as the managing director of Snowy Mountain Spring Water following a 10-year tenure at Westpac.


Foad Farrokhnia, head of alliance and channels APJ at Zscaler, noted that Milionis’ extensive experience in sales, consulting, and channel development will continue to drive their escalating growth.

“We are delighted to have John heading our ANZ channel partner community at this time.

He also has terrific skills from his experience at several dynamic, growing companies where he was instrumental in scaling their channel partner network from the start-up phase all the way through to regional expansion,” Farrokhnia said.

On his appointment, Milionis added that leading Australian enterprises want to accelerate their investments in cloud security solutions would be a key priority, as 2022 progresses.

I’m looking forward to working with our channel partners to enable our joint customers to break free from legacy approaches to security with the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange platform which provides true any-to-any zero-trust connectivity.

Zscaler is committed to helping customers accelerate their cloud security transformations and a committed, certified and highly regarded ANZ channel partner network will provide them with the best possible experience on their ongoing digital transformation journeys, Milionis concluded.
