August 29 2013

Key appointment of veteran Michael Hon-Mong as Managing Director Central and Eastern Europe

Unitrends has appointed Michael Hon-Mong as Managing Director for Central and Eastern Europe. From 1 July 2013 he is responsible for the launch of the Munich office, the development of the partner program and strategic business development. Unitrends offers scalable appliances, software and cloud-based solutions for backup, archiving, instant recovery and disaster recovery. Before his appointment, Michael Hon-Mong worked at Acronis for seven years, first as Senior Director of Sales, EMEA and later as Managing Director Central and Eastern Europe.

Michael Hon-Mong has been active in the distribution of IT products since 1994. Prior to joining Unitrends Michael spent three years as Managing Director responsible for Central and Eastern Europe, one of the most active markets for Acronis. Before this he was responsible for the strategic account planning and business development of Acronis as Senior Director of Sales, EMEA. During this time he put through numerous commercial and strategic measures, resulting in a consistent double-digit revenue growth. Michael Hon-Mong was largely responsible for the development and success of the organisation, as well as for the introduction of today's established brand. In other management positions at Steganos and PowerQuest, Hon-Mong implemented strong phases of growth in the region and reached important achievements and qualifications in wholesale banking.

Following the appointment of Kevin Moreau, Managing Director at Unitrends earlier this year, the appointment of Michael Hon-Mong to our international team to drive business in Central and Eastern Europe is significant given his  experience in and knowledge of the European IT market. His appointment fits perfectly with our growth strategy within this key market that includes Germany, " said Mike Coney, CEO at Unitrends.

Michael Hon-Mong is particularly pleased with the new challenge, to support Unitrends' expansion plans across Europe: "Especially in this region, in which most companies already securing their data professionally, it is particularly exciting for me to bring a new offering to the market. Unitrends offers a well-proven hybrid solution from a single source for all requirements for backup, archiving, instant recovery and disaster recovery - easy to implement and very easy to license." Said Hon-Mong.
