Identity and access management vendor Okta has appointed long-time Microsoft veteran Phil Goldie to lead its Australia and New Zealand business.
Goldie revealed on LinkedIn that he has joined the company in the newly created role of ANZ vice president and country manager after ending his twelve year association with Microsoft ANZ.
The Linkedin post read, “ It's absolutely a thrill to be joining a category and market defining company in Okta. In speaking to the many of the Okta global and local leadership teams over the last few months there were three things that were clear reasons to join - people, platform and potential. Looking forward to the journey and learning ahead!”.
Prior to Okta, he was leading various roles in Microsoft including NZ director of commercial and partner business, ANZ director of partner business, director of corporate accounts sales and director of the server and cloud business group.
Goldie has also worked at consulting firm think GROWTH, now-defunct telco equipment manufacturer Nortel Networks and UK-based Alteon WebSystems.
