Cloud9 Consulting introduces new Partner to bolster client and channel engagement

August 10, 2016

Melbourne, AUCloud9 Consulting, one of Australia’s fastest growing Cloud and Digital consulting companies, has appointed a new Partner to maximise its engagement in the Utilities, Transport and Financial Services sectors and to expand relationships with key clients and partners.

Michael Wong has moved across from Cisco where he spent 10 years in Account Executive roles driving the dominance they enjoyed in utilities, finance and other markets. During those years Michael developed a unique capacity to engage and integrate a wide variety of enterprise stakeholders in the collaborative development of technology and business solutions. Michael’s accomplishments prior to Cisco included key roles in the success of service providers such as KAZ Group, NEC and Bosch, where his strong foundation in direct and partner-led sales and delivery engagements was built amongst industry-leading peers.

In addition to leading Cloud9’s direct client engagement strategies across Utilities, Transport and Financial Services, Michael will also play a key role in developing scale through Cloud9’s vendor and channel partnerships in order to deliver a broader value proposition to major clients.

When introducing Michael to the Cloud9 team, Managing Director Matt Olaes noted:

“Cloud9’s core strategy is to be the most valued driver of complete business-to-technology outcomes within a defined portfolio of enterprise clients and government departments. For those key organisations we invest heavily in building a deep and extensive understanding of how they work and what’s important to them, and we bring the best of what’s available in the market to ensure they turn their objectives into measurable deliverables and benefits. Michael has proven himself over many years in this engagement model and we are confident that the leverage available within the Cloud9 ecosystem will enable even more significant client outcomes over the next few years.”
