Evans will be responsible for spearheading continued company growth in the region, capitalising on business opportunities from information solutions, Cloud and Big Data.

He will also have an overall responsibility to grow the business across A/NZ, as well as manage all operational aspects including driving business strategies, setting performance goals, and growing overall profitability of the company.

Evans' first point of focus will be to execute the Hitachi vision of being a provider of information solutions to the market through its strategic Big Data and Cloud-based offerings.

Before joining Hitachi Data Systems, Evans co-founded a management consultancy firm that provided sales, marketing and leadership support to UK organisations.

He has also held senior roles at Computacenter and numerous system integrators, consultancy partners, independent software vendors (ISV), distribution businesses and application partners across the UK. Evans will be based in Hitachi Data Systems' Sydney office.
