After eight and half years with security vendor Symantec Australia, managing director Craig Scroggie has announced his intention to leave the company.

According to Symantec, Scroggie was leaving to pursue other "business interests". He joined the board of data centre operator NextDC in 2011 as a non-executive director and is an adjunct professor of the La Trobe University faculty of business, economics and law in Melbourne.

A replacement has been found from within the ranks — Symantec.Cloud Asia-Pacific vice president, Brenton Smith. Scroggie will work with Smith during the handover which is expected to be finalised within the next two months.

Bernard Kwok, Symantec Asia-Pacific and Japan senior vice president, said in a statement that Scroggie had made a valuable contribution to the vendor and wished him all the best for “his future endeavours”.
