Appointment boosts strategic marketing drive

Sophos, a world leader in anti-virus solutions for businesses, has announced the appointment of Roshantha Pillay as Marketing Manager, Australia and New Zealand, based in Sydney.

Ms Pillay reports directly to Rob Forsyth who joined Sophos in late-2001 as Regional Sales Director and was last month promoted to the role of Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand.

As Marketing Manager, Roshantha Pillay assumes responsibility for the development and execution of a comprehensive range of marketing strategies in support of the company's continued rapid growth in this market.

Increasingly, her focus will be on supporting local partners as part of Sophos's drive to deepen its market penetration and volume sales through its reseller channel.

Welcoming her to Sophos, Rob Forsyth said, "Roshantha comes to us with an impressive marketing background and a wealth of experience. The timing of this appointment could not be better as we move aggressively forward in these markets."

Before joining Sophos, Ms Pillay spent two-and-a-half years as head of marketing for Aspect Communications Australasia. In all, she has held key IT marketing positions for some 10 years in both Australia and the UK.
