"Lisa's leadership experience and customer focus, along with her strong vendor relationships is why she is considered a trusted advisor in our industry. The new sales team structure under Lisa's leadership is well positioned to continue to help our customers accelerate their digital-first aspirations and meet our ambitious growth targets," said Logicalis Australia CEO Anthony Woodward.
Fortey joined Logicalis Australia nearly eight years ago as an engagement manger and has been leading the Victorian sales team for the last two years.
She previously worked in sales and business development positions at Data#3, Interactive, PGi and ekit.
"Through the establishment of industry focused sales teams, our talented team is better positioned to meet the increasing challenges our customers face and seize opportunities that come with taking a cloud-first approach," said Fortey.
"It also means we are better aligned with our strategic partners, and I believe it showcases our expertise and experience to the market. I could not be more excited to work with our brilliant team in helping our customers architect the change they need in their business."
Logicalis' new sales structure involves industry vertical teams, each headed by a national sector lead, with the aim of leveraging the company's expertise and achievements in the public/education, healthcare, commercial and enterprise sectors.
