Who We Are: Rosh McMahon

As we continue to evolve and grow, we want to be highlighting the range of people, personalities and perspectives that work as a part of the business – both to introduce everyone to you, our customers, and give a little bit of insight into the teams and people who make up who we are as a company.

What is your role within Comscentre?

As of recently, taking over as the National Pre-Sales Manager. It’s a role that involves looking after the national resources for our entire Pre-Sales function, across both Australia and Manila – supporting our Product team, Sales team and Projects team . To put it another way, I’m there as a technology planner aiding the sales discussion.

How long have you been in the role?

It has been a recent promotion, into the new role, as of about six or seven weeks ago. Before that though I was a Solutions Architect, and have been with Comscentre for just over six months now.

Tell us a bit more about your interests and passions, and what’s led you to Comscentre?

Technology has always been a big focus for me, from a very early age right the way through high school – studying Physics, Chemistry, IT, Engineering – and have always been very focused on technology science.  After university, I spent some time with the Defence Force working with electronics, satellites, communications and those types of things that were very, very technology focused.

My interest in technology evolved into learning about how people communicate. It was very strong interest I had and a big thing for me – finding a niche that is going to be long-standing and help me explore building different things with technology, in particular, collaboration and video conferencing. It is wonderful to explore the ways people communicate and collaborate.

But also, I’m continuously learning about and studying the new technologies and how we can use them to deliver rich, positive communication experiences to customers.

What do you enjoy most about your role? What do you take the most satisfaction out of in the role?

It’s simple really. It’s being given the opportunity to help other people: Educate people within our team about different areas technology, new parts of the business and new possibilities. Also, engaging with people externally – to introduce people to each other within the industry locally and nationally.

Shifting to something everybody seems well-versed in these days, if there was anywhere in the world you could go, where would you?

First would be Japan, followed by Ireland. I’ve haven’t visited either yet, but would love to – Japan for the technology and the buzz of the place, and Ireland for its serenity and its history too. It would be great to travel around and visit those places of historical significance.

And before we finish up, can you share with us one thing that we may not know about you?

So, everyone around the office has the perception that I’m quite nerdy and so technology focused, but I actually really, really like gardening. I’m terrible at it, however my goal is to have a fantastic garden. Like, I love flowers!

 

Thanks a lot Rosh. It’s been a pleasure
