AvePoint has today announced the appointment of Mike Prieto as Vice President and Managing Director, Australia & New Zealand. Prieto joins the team amidst strong revenue and ARR growth across all regions.

The need for stronger data management in the cloud is clear. Gartner found 66% of spending on application software will be for cloud technologies in 2025, up from 57% for 2022. It also reported 88% of company boards regard cybersecurity as a business risk rather than an IT problem.
Mike Prieto, Vice President and Managing Director of AvePoint commented: “Recent data breaches and ransomware attacks have brought data management to the forefront of business conversation in ANZ and highlighted the importance of robust and secure data management solutions and processes. With hybrid working, we’re also seeing an increased need to improve the productivity of a workforce that is primarily operating in the cloud.”
“I’m thrilled to be joining AvePoint at such a critical time for data management and look forward to working with the talented team to improve the security and productivity of organisations across ANZ.”
