CITRIX has made three announcements in February that it said further affirmed its commitment to the Asean region.
The first was the appointment of Mark Micallef (pic), a 20-year IT industry veteran, as the new area vice president for Citrix in Asean with immediate effect.
Based in Singapore, Micallef would be responsible for the strategic development, direction and overall revenue goals for Citrix in the region, providing sales and channel leadership.
Micallef is extremely familiar with the Asia Pacific market, Citrix said in a statement. Since joining Citrix in 2004, he was instrumental in the company’s growth and development.
One of his key achievements was building and tripling the enterprise business in Asia within two years. He also played a significant role in building a new team focused on cloud infrastructure following the acquisition of Cloud.com, in his previous appointment as senior director, Cloud Platform Group, Asia Pacific.
On Feb 26, Citrix also officially opened its second largest corporate data center globally in Singapore, worth US$8.7 million.
In February, Citrix also introduced XenMobile MDM, the outcome of Citrix’s strategic acquisition of Zenprise, which further expanded its enterprise mobility portfolio.
