VERTIV on March 19 announced that it has named Teoh Wooi Keat (pic) as the new country manager for Malaysia. An industry veteran, Teoh will be responsible for leading the organisation to ensure customers’ demands are met across all industries.
“Malaysia is fast becoming a data centre hub in Southeast Asia as it continues to improve in terms of network connectivity, infrastructure and overall business climate. Aside from foreign investments, we are also seeing local businesses ramp up their infrastructure in anticipation of high compute demands,” said Teoh.
“It is definitely an exciting time for us at Vertiv as we bring our expertise and innovation to the local market.”
Aside from leading the overall business in Malaysia, Teoh will also provide support and guidance in strengthening the local channel business, as well as collaborate with the regional products and solutions team to drive Vertiv solutions to a bigger market.
Teoh holds a Bachelor of Engineering degree from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and previously held leadership roles, with a focus on demand generation opportunities.
“As we continue to leverage on our expertise in providing solutions for edge deployments, internet of things and – soon – 5G, it is critical that we have the right team in place to work closely with our customers to understand their unique needs. In today’s evolving technology climate, there is no one-size-fits-all approach.
“With Wooi Keat leading the Malaysia business, I am confident that we will be able to solidify our position as the preferred partner for critical infrastructure solutions,” said Vertiv vice president for Southeast Asia Paul Churchill.
Teoh replaces Hitesh Prajapati, who has been named country manager for Vertiv in Singapore.
Vertiv solves challenges facing today’s data centres, communication networks and commercial and industrial facilities with a portfolio of power, cooling and IT infrastructure solutions and services that extends from the cloud to the edge of the network.
