Endace Appoints New Head of HR

Former Endace HR Manager, Sasha Blair, returns to head up HR and Administration

Auckland, New Zealand — May 24, 2017 — Endace, a world leader in high-speed network recording and network history playback, announced today it has appointed Sasha Blair as the company’s new Vice President of HR and Administration.

This is a return to Endace for Blair, who previously held the role of HR Manager from 2014 to 2015, and most recently held the role of Manager, People and Capability at Compac.

Blair has held HR roles at several high-profile New Zealand organizations including Waikato University, NIWA, Constellation New Zealand, and Foster Moore. She says when she was invited to rejoin the Endace team she jumped at the opportunity.

“I have been associated with Endace since the early days at Waikato University. I’ve watched the company grow since its very inception, and I was there shortly after Endace was acquired by Emulex. Now we’re back in private hands again, I’m really looking forward to helping drive the growth Endace is experiencing, and building on the fantastic team we have.”

Endace CEO, Stuart Wilson, says when the decision was made to hire a new head of HR, Blair was top of his list of candidates.

“Sasha is fantastic. She really gets HR and culture and she totally understands our business. To get her back again was fantastic and I’m really looking forward to calling on her expertise as we continue to grow the team around the world.”

Wilson says he’s heartened that several Endace employees have returned to the business since the management buyout.

“We also welcomed back Sander Lommertzen, who returned from his role at Wynyard to be our Director of Business Operations. It’s a real vote of confidence to have such experienced people eager to come back and be part of the Endace team.”
