CITRIX has announced the appointment of Wendy Kho (pic) as the country manager for Citrix Malaysia.
In a statement, the company said it has experienced consistent growth across the Asean region, and this appointment reflects the commitment to invest in Malaysia and the growth opportunity within the market.
It did not disclose any financial information, however.
Based at the Citrix office in Malaysia, and reporting to Asean area vice president Mark Micallef, Kho will drive the company’s local operations and sales, Citrix said.
“The Malaysian market is key to our continued growth and success in the Asean region,” said Micallef.
“Mobility is fast becoming the norm in Malaysia, with mobile penetration at 140% and an estimated 10 million smartphone users active in the country,” he said, citing a 2012 World Bank report.
The Citrix Workplace of the Future report listed Malaysia as leading the globe, with an average of six devices per employee connected to the corporate network, ahead of the rest of the Asia Pacific with an average of 4.39 devices, and ahead of the global average of 4.43 devices.
The report predicted that by 2020 the global average will rise to almost six devices, while Malaysian employees will continue the device consumption, rising to a possible eight devices per employee.
Kho joins Citrix after spending eight years as director of Premier Support Services in Microsoft Malaysia. Prior to Microsoft, she was attached to Indigo Pacific with the responsibility of establishing a new startup in Malaysia.
“I join Citrix at a time when the company's performance locally, particularly at the enterprise level, is growing strongly and I’m excited about working with the passionate people at Citrix Malaysia,” said Kho.
