- Previously served at CA Technologies and Sun Microsystems
PIVOTAL Software has announced the appointment of Lionel Lim as vice president and managing director of its Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) business.
Prior to joining Pivotal, he was the president of Asia Pacific and Japan at CA Technologies, and before that, the president and chief operating officer (COO) of Asia Pacific and Japan at Sun Microsystems, Pivotal said in a statement.
“Lionel [Lim] has a well-earned reputation leading high-performing teams focused on customer success,” said Pivotal president and chief operating officer Bill Cook.
“During his tenure as president and COO of Sun Microsystems in APJ, he was instrumental in the company’s meteoric rise and high rate of customer success in the region,” he added.
On the heels of its three-year anniversary, Pivotal said it continues to see widespread and growing demand from enterprises.
Customer momentum in Asia is highlighted by recent Pivotal office openings in Australia, China, Japan, Singapore, and South Korea, the company said in its statement.
In May, Pivotal announced its subscription software businesses – Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Pivotal Big Data Suite – reached financial milestones by crossing US$200 million and US$100 million in annual bookings run-rate, respectively.
“Pivotal is transforming how traditional enterprises and governments across Asia are doing business by equipping them with technology and next-generation software development capabilities to innovate and disrupt,” said Lim.
“Crossing the US$200-million and US$100-million milestones is a great sign that Pivotal’s cloud and analytics technologies are being embraced by customers, and I’m excited to work with our Asia team to help many more customers build and run software like Google, Uber or any venture-backed startup,” he added.
