Jeff Hurmuses has been promoted to Senior Vice President, APAC, Freddy Wang has been hired as the Country Sales Director for Taiwan, and Makoto Naito is leading Extreme's sales efforts in Japan.

As Senior Vice President of APAC, Hurmuses will manage sales operations and continue to drive growth for Extreme across the region.

Hurmuses joined the company in 2021 as Vice President of Sales in APAC and has played a significant role in establishing a presence in the region with key customer wins, such as LG Electronics and Marriott Hotel Group Greater China. He has also been instrumental in bringing in new talent and realigning strategies across Extreme's APAC presence for accelerated growth.

As country sales director for Taiwan, Wang will lead regional business growth strategies as well as drive Extreme's expanded presence in the country.

Naito-san will continue to drive growth opportunities across Japan.

"Extreme has seen rapid growth across the APAC region over the past year, with major brands trusting us to deliver best-in-class networking solutions including Marriott Hotel Group Greater China and LG Electronics," says Joe Vitalone, Chief Revenue Officer, Extreme Networks.

"Jeff has been a force of growth for us, and I know he will continue to drive success in his new role overseeing the region.

"Freddy and Naito-san will build upon our team of strong, experienced sales leaders and will be an excellent support system for Jeff as Extreme continues to expand in the APAC market. I have confidence that we will quickly realise and even exceed our regional goals for growth as they step into their new roles."
