a highly skilled marketing team and together they will continue to focus on the growth and innovation of Intel’s brand
in Australia and New Zealand,” said Burleigh.
In his new role as National Reseller Channel Manager, Raj will manage Intel’s Local Channel and Branded Distribution

channel and has presided over a number of critical technology transitions and new product introductions within his time,
the most recent being the launch of Intel’s 3rd Generation processors and Ultrabook computers. Raj’s extensive
experience positions him well to lead and manage the local channel team through this exciting growth stage,” said
Both new appointments are effective immediately.
