Dimension Data Australia has announced that CEO Steve Nola will leave his current post for a job heading up the company's newly restructured cloud computing business.

In a global announcement made on Friday, group CEO of DiData Brett Dawson praised Nola's efforts in his decade-long Australian tenure.

"Under Steve's leadership, the Australian business has grown from revenues of US$365 million in 2002 to over US$1 billion today. Steve has also successfully transformed the Australian business from a reseller into an IT outsourcing and managed services focused business.

"In addition, his experience with cloud architecture, telecommunications, services and IT outsourcing stands him in good stead to establish and grow Dimension Data's global Cloud Solutions business," Dawson said on Friday.

Nola said he is keen to get to work building the company's cloud offering after the acquisition of US-based cloud provider OpSource last month.

"I am excited about my new role leading the group's cloud initiatives. As a group, we believe the time is right to place greater focus on this fast-developing space, and significantly increase our offerings and activities," Nola said.

Dimension Data said that Nola's position is set to be filled by Rodd Cunico, the company's southern region manager who, like Nola, has been in his current position for the last 10 years.

Cunico has been given specific areas to focus on in his new role helming the Australian arm of Dimension Data, "a specific focus on" the company's regional Systems Integration business.

In his new role, Cunico will also oversee a trial of a bring-your-own device model for staff, which will see them given the option of using either a device of their choosing like a tablet, laptop or a standard-issue desktop computer.
