Backup and disaster recovery services company Global Storage has appointed James Mackie as Sales Director.

To be based in Global Storage’s Sydney office, Mackie is an eight-year veteran and sales director of NTT and says Global Storage is “perfectly positioned for exponential growth given the Australian-wide rush to achieve digital transformation, the worsening cyberthreat landscape, and the hyperscale cloud movement off the back of application modernisation”. 

“COVID-19 has rapidly accelerated the need for businesses to transform,” says Mackie.

“Organisations are racing to modernise their systems and applications, and find ways to secure, manage, and back up their data. As more data goes online, cybercrime has spiralled. Over the last 18 months, businesses have paid millions upon millions of dollars to release ransomed data. Entire organisations have been crippled as their business systems just stop.”

Mackie says hyperscale environments continue to expand as chip shortages effect traditional supply chain, further highlight the need for professionally managed and backed up data services.

“The triumvirate of digital transformation, cyberattacks and hyperscale environments creates the perfect opportunity for Global Systems to scale.

“Global Storage can help businesses to survive a cyberattack. Their expertise, their ability to quickly restore their customers’ data and systems, can get a business up and running again without having to pay a ransom.”

David Duncan, CEO of Global Storage, says, “The ability of Global Storage to attract someone of James Mackie’s calibre speaks to our across-the-board investment in the business, and our ability to do what we do - exceptionally well.

“We specialise in managed cloud solutions for data protection and disaster management, and we’re highly skilled at delivering a repeatable, consistent service. We value our customers’ satisfaction so much that if we can’t deliver on our promise of full systems recovery, we pay them.

“It’s hard to find people of James’ calibre in what’s a relatively small industry. However, James brings skills and experience and a true enthusiasm for what we do, and the proven ability to build strong relationships within a business and with customers.

He’s a trusted face in the industry, and we’re delighted to have him drive our ambitious growth plans. We know NTT will miss him.”

Global Storage says Mackie’s appointment will enable it to significantly expand its NSW customer base.

“While technology allows you to do business anywhere,” says Duncan, “we believe in the value of having people on the ground. And we know that James is going to be a very welcome face for many.”

“I love that Global Storage is a local business, so their profits remain here, in Australia. They’ve got a unique IP, a great culture, and an exciting vision for the future. I’m keen to be part of that,” says Mackie.

Formed in 1997, Global Storage has 50+ staff across branches in Melbourne (head office), Sydney, Brisbane, and satellite offices in the US servicing Australian businesses and the government sector.
