McAfee expands Australian operations

First quarter revenue for McAfee globally marked the 13th consecutive quarter of double-digit, year-over-year growth for the company.

Australia contributed to record growth in the APAC region, which experienced 14 percent year-over-year growth.

As part of the growth, the company has made some executive hires and its Melbourne office has relocated to Riverside Quay in the heart of Southbank.

"McAfee's new executive appointments and our office relocation in Melbourne are a reflection of McAfee's strength and continued investment in the Australian market," said Andrew Littleproud, regional director ANZ McAfee.

"We are excited about our high growth in the region and look forward to maintaining this momentum."

The new executive hires include:
