Snowflake picks Australia for senior regional staff

By

Cloud-based data warehouse provider Snowflake Computing has made two senior regional appointments in Australia, and opened offices in Sydney and Melbourne.

Peter O'Connor has been appointed vice-president of sales for Asia Pacific, and Alan Eldridge has joined the company as Asia Pacific director of sales engineering.

"The combined experience which Peter and Alan bring to Snowflake in the Asia Pacific region will be crucial to accelerating our market presence in the data sharing economy," said chief revenue officer Chris Degnan.

"Their knowledge of deploying successful, go-to-market strategies and providing customers with the solutions and support they need, will enable organisations to gain all the insight from all their data in order to become data-driven enterprises."

O'Connor is based in Sydney and is charged with leading the management and expansion of Snowflake's Asia Pacific business.
