We are excited to announce that we have officially opened our new Asia Pacific (APAC) HQ office in Melbourne, Australia. Our new GM of APAC, Kevin Mackin, stated “It’s an exciting time for the Asia Pacific region with key economies showing solid year on year growth. Australia is the perfect springboard for Hightail’s regional expansion as it provides a very stable environment politically and economically – as well as a strong pool of IT talent.” Last week Hightail participated at the Connect event in Melbourne, where we had a couple speaking engagements as well as a booth presence. Take a look below at some of our pictures from the trip. Also here is some cool coverage from a couple publications: Australian, CRN and ARN.
