Sage appoints new vice president for Asia Pacific business


ACCOUNTING and business management software company Sage has announced the appointment of Kerry Agiasotis (pic) to the role of executive vice president for Sage Asia Pacific.

Agiasotis joins from Western Union Business Solutions, where he had been president of Western Union's global Business Solutions division since October 2013. Previously, he led the company’s Sales function and held the position of regional managing director for the APAC region.

He comes with more than 20 years’ experience in business management, sales and consulting gained primarily in the Financial Services and IT Industries and has a deep understanding of business builders, having had his own business consultancy practice serving SMEs in the past.

He will start at Sage on Sept 11 and will report to Sage president Blair Crump. Agiasotis will take responsibility for ensuring Sage’s continued growth and success in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region as well as assume responsibilities for Sage’s Australian business.

Crump commented: “With his vast and varied experience running businesses across the Asia Pacific market, Kerry is well-positioned to lead Sage’s business in one of the fastest growing regions in the world.”

Agiasotis will maintain Sage’s focus on providing customers with newly-launched global cloud technologies and support, new customer acquisition and ensure a loyal following for local payroll, payment and accounting solutions, all of which contribute to quality growth.

“Sage has taken great strides across the APAC region to support businesses – the engine room of the economy – with emerging cloud technologies that help them grow and thrive. I’m excited to work with colleagues to build on this success and serve customers with the transformative power of Sage’s software solutions,” said Agiasotis.

The Australian-born Agiasotis holds an Executive MBA degree from the Australian Graduate School of Management and will be based in Sydney, Australia.

Agiasotis steps into the leadership role after Alan Osrin, managing director, Sage Australia announced his impending retirement a few months ago.

Sage’s growth momentum has received a tremendous boost in recent times with extremely positive 2017 global earnings results. Organic growth revenue in the first half (excluding North American Payments) stood at 6.4%, whilst organic recurring revenue growth was 9.9%, with software subscription growth at 30.5%.
