Chillisoft sets up shop in Australia

07 Feb 2007

Heading up the new office will be Australasian IT veteran Russ Olsen, who was most recently CEO of Australian financial software distributor finPOWER Australia.

Olsen has 25 years' experience in technology retail and distribution, particularly in networking and internet security. He has also been responsible for establishing and managing Chillisoft's Australian partner channel, principally for Death2Spam, a New Zealand-developed third-generation spam filtering service used in over 10 countries.

"Partnering with technology innovators and developing business systems and processes that make us extremely easy to deal
with are instrumental to our success," says Cossey. "Replicating this success formula in Australia makes complete sense, particularly now that our customer footprint there continues to grow."

Chillisoft has accumulated more than 400 resellers and customers in New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands since launching in 1998 and was last year placed 12th in the 2006 Deloitte Fast 50 index, 50 fastest growing companies in New Zealand. It was also placed 104th in the Asia Pacific region.
