In his new capacity, Scheurmann will oversee Palo Alto Networks business in the region – from driving revenue growth and market momentum, to building the overall strategy, the company said in a statement.
The cyber security firm said Scheurmann has lived and worked in the Asia-Pacific region for close to 30 years and throughout his career, he has assisted both the public and private sectors with their investments in technology, digital transformation, and cloud adoption.
The firm said Scheurmann began his career at the department of immigration and border protection at the Australian Embassy in Jakarta, supporting the introduction of one of the world's first electronic visa systems.
He went on to serve in senior positions with several multinational companies and large Asian conglomerates across the region, including major software and security vendors, it added.
According to Palo Alto Networks, Scheurmann is a recognised expert on topics such as the digital economy, cyber security, AI, and cloud technology.
He has also taught at the National University of Singapore Business School and is said to regularly speak at industry events, the firm said.
Simon Green, president of Japan and Asia Pacific at Palo Alto Networks, said Scheurmann joins the company at a time of great momentum and change.
“Rapid digitalisation in Asean is reshaping the region, bringing with it new and evolving cyber threats every day.
“We are glad to have him on board, and are certain that Palo Alto Networks will benefit greatly from his wide experience,” said Green.
“I am excited to be joining one of the largest names in cyber security and working alongside the talented Palo Alto Networks regional team to propel our Asean business forward and create greater value for our customers, partners and employees,” said Scheurmann.
“This is an exciting time as we are seeing an increase in the need to secure nations, enterprises and the community against increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks.”
