Box’s born Leader shares Australian growth mission

Australia: Its growth in Australia to date has mostly come from the North America headquartered multi-nationals with bases here, or local businesses sourcing their solutions direct from the US.

The company only established a permanent local presence – beginning with a single individual in Sydney – two years ago, but is now embarking on an ambitious growth mission in Australia and New Zealand, building on the momentum of recent customer wins, with a new leader at the helm: former Pegasystems managing director Scott Leader.

Currently boasting an Australian-based team of ten in Sydney and Melbourne, Leader said the company plans to double its headcount here within the next 12 months to capitalise on a market that remains up for grabs.

“That cloud, content, collaboration space – the market is still open. You look at a lot of companies in Australia and they’re still using email as their main way to share content both internally and externally. In terms of productivity and efficiency, particularly when it comes to security, email is not the way to go,” Leader told Computerworld.
