12 DEC 2014, SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – The ACCA has just held Executive Committee (Exco) 2015 elections, and is pleased to announce and congratulate our incoming 2015 Exco Members.

The ACCA would like to say a big "thank you" to outgoing Vice-Chairman Alan Perkins (formerly Rackspace) and Treasurer Rohan Cook from EMC.

“2014 was a breakthrough year for the ACCA. With three major research publications along with government engagements in more than five countries, the ACCA has taken a significant step in its mission to accelerate the adoption of cloud in the region,” said Bernie Trudel from Cisco who has been elected for another term as Chairman. “I am looking forward to leveraging this solid foundation, and with the Exco 2015 team, bring greater value to our members and the ICT industry in Asia Pacific.”

“It is a great opportunity for my company and I to participate in ACCA, and I am looking forward to driving an innovation agenda in the industry enabled by cloud, for the benefit of the industry and our customers,” said Aman Neil Dokania, incoming vice-chairman.

“In an era where more collaboration and communication between various players in the cloud ecosystem is needed, I am pleased to contribute to the building of a strong representative voice for the cloud community in the ACCA,” said Karthik Ramarao, incoming treasurer.

The ACCA also welcomes Board Members for the 2015-2016 term of office: HP, PLDT, Symantec, and TrustSphere. The association meets quarterly each year, and was in Sydney to hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in North Ryde, hosted by Microsoft.
