SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwired - Sep 13, 2016) - To enable IT service providers to capitalize on fast-moving trends in key technology sectors, Westcon Financial Services has opened offices in Australia. The move signals a strong commitment by the company to support its customers with innovative financial services that can help accelerate their growth potential. Industry veteran Mark Hegarty has been appointed director of Australian and New Zealand (ANZ) operations with responsibility for leading the company's business strategy and operations, as well as managing and delivering its financial solutions and products portfolio for Westcon-Comstor's Australian and New Zealand customers, partners, and manufacturers.
