Dropbox has appointed former SurveyMonkey APAC managing director Tony Ward as its new A/NZ Country Manager.
Ward will continue building the cloud storage company’s position in the region and lead the business into its next phase of growth.
Ward brings his experience in sales and marketing, having held senior regional positions at global tech giants LinkedIn, where he served as director of sales; and Microsoft, where he was CMO and COO, and helped grow the company’s $1billion business.
He will further accelerate the adoption of Dropbox Business (its business-ready platform) amongst A/NZ organisations and enterprises, enabling them to drive collaboration and leverage it as a competitive differentiator.
“Dropbox Business is the industry’s best-kept secret,” says Ward.
“This is a brand that has grown organically from a user base that loves the product for its simplicity, reliability and functionality.
“My job is to help A/NZ organisations and enterprises radically transform the way their teams collaborate with Dropbox, and be competitive and successful in this fast-paced world,” he says.
Dropbox has attracted many high profile customers in Australia and New Zealand, with companies and brands such as Built, Paymark, Mirvac, Kogan.com, Campos Coffee, Dion Lee, Airtasker, Campaign Monitor, and Deliveroo, all using the platform to collaborate internally and externally.
“A/NZ businesses are forward-looking early adopters of technology, and that is reflected in the impressive adoption rates of Dropbox Business in this region,” he says.
Outside of business, Ward was a four-time Canadian cycling champion, volunteers to support the global Room to Read program, and is a mentor at The Marketing Academy.
