Acronis loses Australian General Manager

Interviews under way for replacement, steady as she goes etc.

7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

Backup software vendor Acronis has lost its General Manager for Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific.

Karl Sice left the company in May to take up a new position as Head of Sales and IT Solutions at online stationer Staples.

Acronis confirmed Sice's departure to The Register and said interviews for a replacement have commenced.

Bill Taylor-Mountford, Acronis' Asia-Pacific President, is overseeing the Australia, New Zealand and Pacific markets until a new appointment is made.

Sice's LinkedIn profile says that while at Acronis, he “Achieved 121% QoQ and 116% YoY billings growth in a rapidly growing market against intense competition. Identified the highest growth sectors, invested in a dedicated corporate end user sales function and recruited over 1,000 partners while ensuring that the tools, processes and systems needed to capitalise on opportunities were in place.”

If that's the case, and we have no reason to imagine otherwise, he'll be missed at Acronis and valued at Staples, which since acquiring Corporate Express in 2010 has made no secret of its ambitions to dominate Australia's stationery scene. ®
