Joining from US computer technology corporation Oracle, Gary de Menezes will assume responsibility for all of the company’s business within the SADC (Southern African Development Community) region, including the development and execution of sales and channel strategies, expanding the NetApp customer base and enhancing its partner and alliances ecosystem.

“The appointment of de Menezes demonstrates NetApp’s commitment to its African growth strategy and affirms that NetApp will continue to develop and prosper in these markets, extracting maximum impact from the expected high domestic growth,” said Konstantin Ebert, the company’s senior director for the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Turkey, Africa, Russia and CIS region (MEEEAR). “We have now completed our leadership appointments in Africa and the Middle East and believe strongly in their ability to lead NetApp in their respective regions.”

De Menezes brings more than 28 years of experience in the IT sector to the company, including his previous position as regional director at Oracle, as well as senior roles at major names like Compaq and Hewlett Packard.
