Kaseya has promoted Daniel Garcia to the position of vice president and general manager for Asia Pacific (APAC).

He replaces Dermot McCann, who has been promoted to lead Kasey’s EMEA operations as executive vice president and general manager.

In his new role, Garcia will oversee the go-to-market strategy for APAC, including new business and account management.

He brings extensive experience in operational growth to his new role, Kaseya said, forged over over 15 years’ in the Australian IT industry

Garcia previously served as Kaseya’s Asia Pacific senior director of TruPeer – the vendor’s managed services provider training and mentoring group – which he helped launch in Australia.

“I am eager to take on this new position with Kaseya, and to further support our partners in the APAC region so they can be the most successful and profitable MSPs globally,” said Garcia.

“We have a thriving MSP industry in APAC, and I want to make sure Kaseya continues to deliver to its customers and helps them grow as their needs evolve.”

Prior to joining Kaseya, Garcia served as chief customer officer at Pia following an over six-year stint at Wollongong-based managed services provider Virtual IT Group.

“We are strengthening our position in Europe by bolstering our leadership in the region. As a global market leader, we recognise the importance of this market, and are committed to our growth there, said Joe Smolarski, Kaseya president and chief customer officer.

“Similarly, Asia-Pacific is equally critical to our business and therefore, we continue to allocate resources to support our partners based in APAC.”
