FirstWave Appoints Business Development Professionals in Australia, US, and Mexico


FirstWave Cloud Technology Limited (ASX: FCT) (FirstWave), an Australian cybersecurity and network management software firm, has appointed new business development executives on three continents to further expand its worldwide sales and marketing efforts.

There are now three new members of the team: Patrick Dobry in Austin, Texas as an Enterprise Account Executive; Paola Khnanisho as a Cyber Security Sales Executive embedded in Telstra in Sydney; and Hector Vadillo in Mexico as an Account Manager working on Latin American opportunities.

After working for Opmantek, a network management software startup that FirstWave bought in early 2022, Mr. Dobry has returned to the FirstWave team. Management at FirstWave is delighted to have Mr. Dobry back on the team after hearing such rave reviews about him from his time at Opmantek.

Ms. Khnanisho comes to FirstWave from the mobile messaging technology firm Soprano Design, where she was responsible for fostering relationships with network providers and business clients. She will assist FirstWave’s newfound emphasis on cybersecurity as an embedded account manager for Telstra, where the two companies have had a longstanding partnership.

Mr. Vadillo has been brought on to lend a hand in the management of FirstWave’s Latin American clientele and to aid in the acquisition of new telecoms industry customers.

FirstWave CEO Danny Maher said the hires reflected the company’s commitment to its strategy of focusing on Service Providers and big companies in high-growth areas.

The appropriate personnel in each of our target markets are essential if we are to make the most of the prospects we see for expanding both the visibility and the sales of our network management and cybersecurity platforms, he added.

Each of our new hires brings tremendous experience working with major business customers and deep expertise in our chosen technological fields.
