D-Link Australia and New Zealand managing director, Domenic Torre, announced the appointment of former Symantec Norton anti-virus team retail sales manager, Mary Georgievski, as consumer sales manager for ANZ. Georgievski also worked for IT distributor, Ingram Micro.

According to Georgievski, D-Link’s consumer business is tracking “relatively strong at the moment,” and she says, “while the retail market is a little tough, as evidenced by the number of special deals on offer, we are in a stronger position than most other suppliers.”

“With the whole move to digital convergence people are still buying new hardware devices like tablets, media players and smart TVs. And these devices rely on the seamless end-to-end connectivity solutions — such as wireless routers and PowerLine AV products — that D-Link provides.”

Georgievski says that while D-Link is best known for networking products, the company has also moved into the entertainment business, with products like the Boxee Box media streaming device helping to “enrich the digital experience for consumers.”

Based at D-Link’s ANZ Sydney headquarters, Georgievski reports to managing director, Domenic Torre, who said Georgievski’s appointment would ensure the company maintained a “strong level of engagement with all our key retail and distribution partners.”
