Having followed Dan's career for some time, I'm excited to have his capabilities on board as we seek executive guidance for the growth of our Australian operations," said Lancom Technology chief executive Waruna Kirimetiyawa.
"He has the experience, knowledge and capabilities which are crucial in achieving managed growth in a market which, as it faces major challenges, also has substantial opportunities for the introduction of cloud and other technology solutions."
The appointment follows the establishment of a Lancom Technology office in Melbourne.
Williams joins Lancom from PowerNet IT Solutions where he spent 16 years in a variety of roles, most recently as a director after stepping down as CEO late last year.
Earlier in his career, he worked in technical roles at Anderson Rice, HP and Hume City Council.
Williams is also a certified EOS (Entrepreneurial Operating System) implementor.
"My specialty is in building strategy, vision and healthy teams," he said.
"As a company which has done business successfully in Australia for some time, Lancom Technology is ideally positioned for an expansion of its services, particularly in the underserved mid-market."
He added "We're seeing distinct demand particularly in the rollout of cloud services and solutions and application modernisation. Organisations today are under no illusions that the cloud is the way forward, and in Victoria, that's been driven home hard by the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic."
Lancom's Melbourne office has already taken on business development specialists, and will add staff in operational roles "in due course."
