Alcatel-Lucent has gone Dutch, appointing Maud Holvast as the company’s new vice president for the Australia and New Zealand region.

After previously holding the position of country manager of the Netherland operations, Holvast was responsible for developing business relationships with partners and end users.

With over ten years of experience in Enterprise business of the company, Alcatel says Holvast is ideally positioned to help strengthen the company’s offerings to its partner network and capture the growth opportunities driven by what she describes as the new “Personal Cloud Era”, which is shaping the future of the enterprise market.

“This is a company I know well and we are focused on enabling more collaborative multimedia conversations with our OpenTouch communication and Application Fluent network solutions," she says.

"We have seen the level of excitement already generated with our partners and I look forward to working with the team here to help enterprises embrace new opportunities in the Personal Cloud Era."

“The ways people are communicating are rapidly being redefined by the technology evolution and this is accelerating the need for business to adopt new business models.

"There is a lot of buzz around innovation in Australia as organisations look to invest in mobility and the cloud and we are well positioned to leverage this with our strong roadmap of product development."

Holvast will be making the move from the Netherlands to Sydney for the new role.
