Ciena appoints new MD

By

Ciena has appointed Wayne Moulton to the role of Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand.

He will be responsible for driving the strategic direction of the company in local markets, as well as developing new business and building on existing relationships with customers such as AAPT, Australia-Japan Cable, Southern Cross Cable, Telstra Clear, VERN and Vodafone NZ.

“Wayne will help to strengthen our focus on the Australian and New Zealand markets,” says Anthony McLachlan, Vice President for Ciena Asia-Pacific, who previously also held the ANZ role that Moulton is assuming.

“He joined us earlier in the year in a pan-APAC role working on numerous projects. His leadership and customer focus will be well-appreciated as we build on the strong momentum we’ve established over a highly successful year locally.”

Moulton joined Ciena in April this year from Alcatel-Lucent, where he was Vice President for Global Customers, Marketing and Strategy Communications. He spent three years there in several senior management roles and working with carriers across Europe, USA, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, India, Hong Kong, and Japan.

Before that he was at Nortel for 17 years. His roles included commercial management, product management and international sales across multiple regions. McLachlan is also ex Nortel, coming into Ciena when it acquired Nortel’s Ethernet division in 2010.

“Australia and New Zealand are on the verge of leading the world when it comes to broadband speed with the NBN,” says Moulton. “Combine this with the uptake in 4G mobile technologies by local operators, the continued investment in submarine cables, and Ciena’s development of network architectures, and we are entering a new advanced technological environment which increases network performance, capacity, lowers costs.”
