INTERSHOP Opens Two Sales Offices in Australia

San Francisco-based e-commerce solutions provider INTERSHOP Communications Inc. opened sales offices in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia.

Driven by growing demand for its e-commerce solutions, the company said it selected Australia as its first subsidiary in the Asia Pacific region.

International Data Corp. projects the number of Australian Internet users to increase nearly seven-fold, to more than 4.5 million by the year 2001, the company said.

INTERSHOP's operations in Sydney will be headed by regional sales manager Fergus Campbell, an expert in database and programming tools who previously worked for Oracle, Informix, and Sybase. Campbell will market INTERSHOP products primarily to the telecommunications industry.
