AMP NetConnect, a brand of Tyco Electronics , has increased its commitment to the development of the Queensland business with the appointment of Eric Brace.
Brace’s role as Business Development Manager for Queensland and the Northern Territory will provide a new level of activity for AMP NetConnect in the region, one of the fastest growing areas for Tyco Electronics.
"After many years of association with AMP from a distribution perspective it’s a great opportunity to be directly involved with one of the fastest growing vendors at the coal face,” says Brace.
Brace joins Tyco Electronics with a long history in the IT&C space. After beginning his career at Hardie Networks he joined the then small team at D-Link Australia and was pivotal in introducing networking technologies to the communication cabling market. Following five years as D-Link’s BDM Australia and New Zealand he joined Page Data to head the distributors operations in Australia, a role he held for nine years.
In addition, Derek Phillips has rejoined the ranks of Tyco Electronics as National Project Manager.
Based in Brisbane, Derek will be tasked with the post sales support of major projects across the country. This will provide an edge to Tyco Electronics in the quality and accuracy of delivery of major projects and provide the ability to engineer tailored solutions for today’s demanding electronic design applications.
Derek’s broad experience is gleaned from previous roles in Project Management, General Management and Sales and Marketing, in Australia, UK & Europe and he has over 18 years experience in the Data Communications industry.
“I think that today our partners and customers have a lot of choice. We hope that by providing these unparalleled levels of service and support, by combining the best solutions and the best people, we at AMP NetConnect can make that choice an easy one,” commented Greg Spencer, Regional Business Director ANZ of AMP NetConnect.
