Options Extends Business Operations in New Zealand and Australia

Options has opened an office in Auckland, New Zealand, marking expansion of the firm’s business operations in New Zealand and Australia. The Auckland office is part of an ongoing, global initiative to bring the firm’s sales, operations, account management and support teams closer to key customers in the region.

In addition to Options’ Hong Kong and Singapore offices, which have served the Asia-Pacific region since 2009, the firm’s Auckland office will bolster the firm’s global support model and provide increased sales and engineering support in the region.

Jun Ashida, managing director, and head of Asia at Options, says: “As Options continues to scale globally, one of our primary aims is to bring our business, infrastructure and technology closer to clients. In the past six months we have deployed successful colocation venues in Singapore and Korea. Our New Zealand presence will ensure the next phase of dedicated colocation expansion in Sydney – ASX and SY2 – will continue with similar pace and agility.”
