Global cybersecurity and cloud specialist VAD strengthens leadership team to accelerate growth and innovation
SINGAPORE – 9th January, 2020 – Exclusive Networks today announced the appointment of Brad Gray as Senior Vice President for its recently formed APAC region, following the combining of its Asia and Pacific business operations. Brad will provide strategic in-theatre leadership to support the company’s continuing success in offering unique local and global value, whilst driving future growth through market leading technologies, innovative services, and disruptive business models, creating value at scale for both vendors and channel partners alike.
Brad’s appointment comes as one of four new strategic hires to complement Exclusive’s existing global leadership team which includes Gerard Allison (SVP, EMEA), Scott Lewis (SVP, Americas) and Barrie Desmond (SVP Marketing & Communications).
Brad is a highly experienced senior executive with a 25+ year track record of building successful teams in APAC, spent at vendors such as Juniper Networks, Polycom and, most recently, SAP. Having resided for 20 years in Singapore and for 3 years previously in Indonesia, Brad’s cultural, technological and commercial insights within the region bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the Exclusive Networks APAC business. The appointment comes as the former ‘Asia’ and ‘Pacific’ regions of Exclusive Networks are combined as a single ‘APAC’ region.
“I’m delighted to welcome Brad onboard with a fresh remit to shape the highly successful Exclusive Networks Asia and Pacific teams into a regional powerhouse for our global business,” said Andy Travers, EVP Worldwide Sales & Marketing. “He understands all the fundamentals of go-to-market success in the APAC region from the perspective of both fast-growth vendors and mature technology brands. His leadership will be critical in strengthening our market position and establishing Exclusive Networks as the premier cyber and cloud VAD in APAC.”
“It’s an honour to join Exclusive at such an important moment in its APAC growth as I believe there are significant opportunities for us to grow and strengthen our team, making us irreplaceable among the vendor and partner ecosystem,” said Brad Gray. “My experience as a previous Exclusive Networks customer gives me huge confidence in the current team’s will to perform and succeed, and I look forward to capitalising on our unique cyber and cloud specialisms to develop our presence in existing and new APAC territories.”
