Zscaler Ramps Up ANZ Presence With Two ANZ Regional Sales Director Appointments


Zscaler has announced the expansion of its presence across Australia and New Zealand with the appointment of two regional sales directors.

Kirk Henzlik will hold responsibility for sales in Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia and New Zealand.  Kirk has more than 25 years’ sales experience and joins Zscaler from Workday where he was Sales Director for Australia with responsibility for accelerating momentum for the company’s range of next generation enterprise business services.

Henzlik previously worked for Lawson Software as Strategic Account Director – APAC and at Oracle Australia as Applications Sales Representative.

Benjamin Weldon will hold responsibility for sales in New South Wales, Queensland and the Northern Territory.  Weldon joins Zscaler with more than 10 years’ experience in sales and was most recently Regional Sales Director at AppDynamics where he was responsible for fuelling application performance management sales momentum among both public sector and large enterprise organisations.

Weldon previously worked at RSA Security as Business Manager with a focus on financial services and initially commenced his career in the IT industry at Quest Software where he held several roles, including as New South Wales Enterprise Account Executive.

Scott Robertson, Vice President Asia Pacific and Japan, Zscaler said, “These new sales director appointments in the region are testament to the strengthening of our business in Australia and New Zealand and market demand for innovative security in a cloud-first world.

“At the same time, we’re seeing a razor sharp focus from both public and private sector businesses on reducing risk, improving the user experience, and consolidating security point products with a cloud first lens.  Kirk and Benjamin’s combined and exceptional industry experience will enhance our regional capacity to support customers with these goals and to reinforce momentum for both Zscaler and our partner community.”
