The former SonicWall and Cisco channel executive is now overseeing all strategic business and channel efforts in the Far East for the unified communications vendor.

After a long absence from public view, former SonicWall channel chief John DiLullo has surfaced on the other side of the world as Avaya’s new president of the Asia-Pacific region.

DiLullo had taken an undefined position at Avaya several months ago, and there was some speculation that he would eventually be appointed to head its channel operations. However, that honor went to Todd Abbott and DiLullo has remained largely out of sight until now.

As president of the Asia-Pacific region based in Singapore, DiLullo will oversee all of the unified communications company’s business strategy and implementation, customer relations, marketing and channel programs.

Prior to joining Avaya, DiLullo most recently served as vice president of worldwide channel sales at SonicWall, a leader of SMB-class security and storage solutions. He had previously served as vice president of worldwide distribution at Cisco Systems.
