Intel Beefs Up ANZ Channel Team
Intel has beefed up its ANZ channel with the hiring of two new Business Development Managers focusing on growing the market for Intel’s gaming and enthusiast products, NUCs, SSDs, and Intel Core Processors.
This news follows the departure of their third CEO in three years, in addition to other executives, after former CEO Brian Krzanich resigned from the company with CFO Robert Swan acting as Intel’s interim chief executive officer.
Dino Strkljevic will be joining the Sydney-based team, bringing with him almost 20 years of experience in the Australian IT industry in both marketing and sales roles as well as his reputation for breaking numerous overclocking world records with his teammates at TeamAU.
Strkljevic spent eight years with Gigabyte as Marketing Manager for Australia and New Zealand overlooking all marketing activities, building relationships with the enthusiast community and channel partners, running events and programs as well as contributing to research and product development.
Rocielle Barandino has been with Intel since 2016, based in Penang Malaysia and will be joining the Melbourne team as Business Development Manager in January.
Before working with Intel, Rocielle had more than 10 years of experience in the tech industry as an inside sales specialist, including roles at Lenovo and Dell.
The new hires and their pedigrees follow other significant hires to improve its graphics solution performance and compatibility in gaming, notably former AMD GPU team leader Raja Koduri to lead the new Cores and Visual Computing Group.
The new hires will also be focusing on expanding Intel’s data-centric business, by collaborating with partners that bring experience in server products, IOT solutions and storage solutions.
