SCHNEIDER Electric has announced the appointment of Serge Noraz (pic) as the Malaysia IT Business vice president.
He replaces John Atherton, who after four years is moving on to head the Software and Pre-fabricated Data Centre in Schneider Electric IT Business Unit as Asia Pacific and Japan regional director.
A Schneider Electric veteran who has built his career with the company over the last 24 years, Noraz will draw on his EMEA (Europe/ Middle East/ Africa) and Asia experience in energy management and IT solutions for data centres and the cloud, to drive growth for the company in Malaysia.
He will look after the strategic direction, operations, and expansion of Schneider Electric’s IT business in Malaysia, the company said in a statement.
“We are very pleased to welcome Serge [Noraz] to the Malaysian team,” said Schneider Electric Malaysia country president Soo Pow Leong. “He is a respected figure in Schneider Electric and one of the most forward-thinking strategists in the industry.”
“Big data is driving rapid cloud adoption and data centre optimisation and as Asia Pacific starts to drive global adoption of the IoT (Internet of Things), which will create a deluge of big data from everywhere, I am sure that Serge’s proven track record will further enable Schneider Electric to help our customers address their business needs today while preparing for the fast approaching future.”
Before moving to Asia, Noraz was the operations vice president for EMEA at Schneider Electric, in charge of Order Management and Technical Support for the IT Business unit.
He also took part in setting-up a joint venture between Schneider Electric and Eltek, a data centre systems provider from Norway.
“I am excited to join Schneider Electric Malaysia and I look forward to working with the local team to further improve the experience for our customers by bringing cutting-edge products and services to the local market,” Noraz said.
“I also believe that the pool of professionals we have at Schneider Electric and the fast growing IT market in Malaysia will give me the opportunity to continue to learn and contribute to this emerging business environment,” he added.
