Dell Boomi names Nicholas Lambrou managing director for Australia/New Zealand

Dell Boomi has appointed Nicholas Lambrou as managing director for Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ). As head of the local operation, Mr. Lambrou will provide governance to drive revenue and customer adoption in A/NZ, said the company in a statement. Mr. Lambrou reports to Michael Evans, managing director for the Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) region, whose responsibilities include continuing regional growth and replicating the company’s A/NZ success across South East Asia and Japan.

Mr. Lambrou joins Boomi with almost 30 years’ experience in the A/NZ technology industry. He most recently completed a 17-year tenure with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), where he held several senior roles across its consumer, SMB and enterprise businesses. Lambrou’s time at HPE was preceded by similar positions at Gateway, NetComm and Lexmark International RS.

“Over the next three months, my focus will be on observing the local business, reviewing our operating relationship with customers and partners, and driving our strategy to enhance the value Boomi delivers to those clients. This also includes expanding the general awareness around the role and benefits integration provides to transformation programs,” said Mr. Lambrou in a statement.

Boomi has continued investing in regional resources, tripling its headcount in the last 12 months with intent to further double the APJ team by the end of 2018.
