Delphix Builds Formidable Sales Team and Boosts Asia Pacific & Japan Business 50%
As part of its rapid expansion in to Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ), Delphix has been on a recruitment spree since the beginning of 2018 appointing four IT veterans boasting a wealth of skills, know-how and experience.
Responsible for driving sales and developing strategic partnerships, the Regional Sales Managers are helping APJ’s agile, data driven enterprises transform their approach to data management and implement DataOps strategies to accelerate business innovation.
The four Managers report in to Vice President and General Manager for APJ, Richard Gerdis who said:
“In the Asia Pacific and Japan region, we’ve seen a 50% spike in new business in just the last few months, driven by companies that are struggling to both protect user data and deliver innovation to the market faster than the competition.
With this formidable and highly experienced sales team now in place, Delphix is primed to help more businesses become free from encumbering data challenges so they can move at the pace needed to succeed in today’s digital economy.”
