Nutanix has appointed Jelaine Doncaster as Head of Channels, Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).
Jelaine’s 30-year career has been built on the partner side of the A/NZ channel ecosystem.
She joins Nutanix from Datacom where she held the position of general manager – Licensing Consulting.
Previously, she served as country managing director A/NZ at SoftwareONE and before that she held multiple senior roles at Data#3 during a two-decade tenure.
Jelaine will help Nutanix further execute on its vision to provide partners with a cloud platform that allows their customers to run their apps and data anywhere.
“There is forced change creeping through the market. It’s a tricky time for A/NZ partners because they’re simultaneously swimming against inflation and other macroeconomic pressures. My goal is to help partners de-risk their businesses and strengthen trust with Nutanix in this new era,” said Doncaster.
“Having grown up in the channel, few people have a better understanding of the challenges partners face,” said Aaron White, GM and VP of Sales, Nutanix APJ.
“Jelaine is a natural fit to lead our local channel team because she understands what partners need to remain profitable, achieve better outcomes and rise through change and uncertainty in the market.”
Jelaine will report to Michael Magura, VP Partner Sales, Nutanix APJ.
Another key recent appointment is Chris Porter, who joined Nutanix A/NZ as an NC2 Solutions Architect. He was previously Principal Solutions Architect at AWS.Click below to share this article
