Ronald Tan has been appointed as the new Country Director for Singapore.

In his new role, Tan will be responsible for leading the company's overall business strategy, sales operations and growth strategy in Singapore.

Tan joins Veritas from Cisco Systems, where he last held the role of Regional Sales Director and led the enterprise networking, software and cloud businesses for the ASEAN region.

In his 11-year stint with Cisco Systems, Tan held numerous leadership positions across diverse sectors, including government, enterprise and commercial.

Under his leadership, the sales and channels teams achieved significant market gains and consistently met their business revenue targets for consecutive years.

Upon assuming his new role, Ronald will focus on deepening the strategic relationships with partners and customers to deliver positive business value from Veritas. He will also be spearheading initiatives that promote a people-centric and innovative culture.

"In a fast-changing business landscape, organisations that embrace a digital-first strategy would be better prepared to strengthen their business resilience and agility," says Andy Ng, Vice President and Managing Director for Asia South and Pacific region, Veritas.

"With Ronald's proven track record of building strong winning teams and championing digital transformation initiatives, I am confident that he will be able to accelerate Veritas' growth in Singapore while addressing the triple challenge faced by our customers today as they navigate the complexities across multi-cloud environments: growing data estates, increasing ransomware threats and ensuring regulatory compliance," he adds.

"This is an exciting time for Veritas. As organisations plan for the post-pandemic future and find ways to minimise disruptions to catch the hybrid cloud transition, it is now more important than ever for them to deploy cloud-optimised, autonomous data management solutions that eliminate the need for human intervention while increasing efficiency and security," Tan says.

"I look forward to leading the Singapore team to bolster business productivity and data management capabilities for our customers, so that they can focus on their key strategic business activities."
