- CK Lam now APAC director of data centre fabric and virtualisation
- Beni Sia named regional director for South-East Asia
BROCADE has announced the appointment of Lam Chee Keong (CK Lam) (pic) to the position of director of data centre fabric and virtualisation for Asia Pacific, and Beni Sia to the role of regional director for South-East Asia.
Based out of Singapore, both will be responsible for driving the company’s data centre and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) strategy and adoption across their regions, the company said in a statement.
Lam will report to Matt Kolon, Brocade chief technology officer for Asia Pacific. With over 20 years of networking experience, Lam most recently worked at Juniper Networks, where he was tasked with driving thought leadership and large customer engagements for Juniper’s data centre solutions – spanning routing, switching, and security – across Asia Pacific.
Prior to Juniper Networks, Lam was an advisory sales specialist at IBM Global Technology Services for network infrastructure and data centre solutions. He also held various senior technical positions at Intel and Novell.
As regional director for South-East Asia, Sia will be responsible for charting the company’s strategic direction and growth for the region, and driving customer adoption of Brocade Ethernet fabric and software networking solutions.
He will report directly to Adam Judd, Brocade vice president for Asia Pacific. With over two decades of sales and marketing experience across the telecommunications, enterprise, and commercial sectors, Sia (pic) was most recently the country director for Singapore, Vietnam, Philippines and Indochina at Juniper Networks.
“The addition of CK [Lam] and Beni [Sia] to our regional leadership team validates our strong commitment to South-East Asia and Asia Pacific as we continue to foster our leadership in data centre and software networking across the region,” said Judd.
“There is a perfect storm of new technologies and new business requirements all hitting at the same time, and Brocade is uniquely positioned to challenge and disrupt the current networking status quo by taking an evolutionary and revolutionary approach to innovation and development cycles.
“Asia Pacific is forecast to become the second biggest revenue contributor in the global SDN market by 2019, and our leading position in Ethernet fabric adoption and software networking will put us in an excellent position to leverage these imminent opportunities to deliver agile and flexible networks for our customers,” he added.
