Venter was promoted to area manager in July 2010. In this capacity, he was responsible for EMC’s overall sales in South Africa and also held cross-functional responsibility for channel and global services.

As country manager, Venter is responsible for EMC’s overall performance and strategy in the Southern African region. Marketing, channel, HR and financial operations reporting lines have been added to his existing responsibilities.

“We will develop our talent pool to not only continuously improve, but also deliver on the company’s expectations. We will grow EMC’s market leadership locally and ensure that EMC acquires new accounts by executing our go-to-market strategy,” Venter said.

Prior to joining EMC, he managed various accounts in the telco and media sectors for IBM. He holds an Electronic diploma from the Vaal University of Technology.
