Privasec was created by a team of industry veterans after Telstra acquired Bridge Point Communications in late 2014, and quickly established itself as a premium provider of specialised cybersecurity services to enterprises and local/state governments.
Coles, an industry veteran with over 20 years’ experience in information technology and information security has previously held senior roles with Computer Associates, Astaro (now Sophos), Altiris and CQR Consulting and has led enterprise sales, channel and services teams in Australia, Asia and Japan.
Privasec had been scanning the country for a Sales Director for over 6 months before appointing Guy. “Privasec was founded by practitioners for practitioners and therefore upholds very high standards of care, delivery and service. Guy’s profile is quite unique and his values, in particular his integrity, align well with ours”, says Romain Rallu, Managing Consultant at Privasec.
Coles is responsible for driving growth by engaging in high value-added partnerships with clients and helping them leverage new business opportunities in information security and cybersecurity to keep their environments secure.
His charter covers the management of all sales and business development across the region.
