Scroggie will be replaced by Brenton Smith, who joined Symantec a year ago as the company's vice president for the Symantec.cloud business across the Asia-Pacific, Japan and Singapore regions.

Smith was previously the managing director for CA Technologies in Australia and New Zealand, and, over the past 20 years, has held senior positions at organisations including Siebel Systems, SAP and SAP consultancy BrightStar.

"Brenton brings a wealth of experience to this role," said Symantec senior vice president of Asia Pacific and Japan, Bernard Kwok.

"With his great wisdom and hands-on approach, I look forward to this next chapter of Symantec in Australia and New Zealand under Brenton's leadership."

Kwok also acknowledged Scroggie's contribution to the company, wishing him the best with his plans to pursue other business interests outside of the company.

The company said that following Smith's new role, the Symantec.cloud business will move into the Asia-Pacific and Japan strategic sales group led by Bjorn Engelhardt.
