Mimecast expands into Asia Pacific with new office in Melbourne
Cloud-based information management specialist will add 25 new roles over the next year
Melbourne, Australia. – July 18 2013 – Mimecast today announced the opening of its first regional APAC office in Melbourne, Victoria. The company is the leading supplier of cloud-based email archiving, continuity and security, for Microsoft Exchange, hosted Exchange and Office 365. Mimecast expects to have 25 employees based in Australia within the next year. Last September, Mimecast received $62m in Series C funding from New York-based Insight Partners to support international expansion and technical development.
Heading up the Australian team is Country Manager, Nicholas Lennon. Nicholas has been with Mimecast since 2007, leading business development in Europe and the company’s growth in Hosted Exchange. Joining Nicholas in Melbourne are Olivia Dempster as Channel Sales Manager and Alison O’Hare as Customer Engagement Director. All three are focused on Australian customers and will support the company’s continued expansion into this region.
“Mimecast has seen incredible revenue growth across the world and we already have a number of customers in Australia. This new regional hub in Melbourne will enable us to grow the business significantly throughout Australia and into APAC,” said Nicholas Lennon, ANZ Country Manager. “A key part of our growth strategy will be partner recruitment, and we are looking forward to sharing the long term rewards of our channel program with Microsoft partners who are looking to build a long term, sustainable, profitable business on cloud services.”
The Australian office opening completes Mimecast’s global support structure for customers and channel partners. Customers in Australia can now access Mimecast’s expert local technical and support teams, backed by Mimecast’s industry leading 100 percent continuity of service SLA (Service Level Agreement).

The Government of Victoria was instrumental in bringing Mimecast to Melbourne, providing business support, advice and assistance across a wide number of areas. “The support the Victorian government has given us has been invaluable in setting up our company in Australia and we find Victoria an easy place to do business.” Nicholas Lennon added.
