Confluent chooses Brar as APAC SVP Featured

By

Data streaming platform operator Confluent has appointed Kamal Brar to the role of senior vice president for the APAC region.

"Confluent is committed to providing world-class customer experiences in every region. Kamal is an influential leader primed to empower our teams to embody that commitment, while his smart, strategic approach will guide our success as we grow in a diverse region," said Confluent chief revenue officer Larry Shurtz.

Brar brings to Confluent two decades of enterprise technology strategic leadership.

He joins the company from Rubrik, where he worked as APJ vice president and general manager.

Brar previously held broadly similar roles at Hortonworks, Talend, MongoDB, Oracle and MySQL.

Earlier in his career he worked in sales at HP (following its acquisition of Outerbay Technologies) and Oracle, and in network design at Optus.

He is also a board advisor to SingleStore.

Brar holds a bachelor's degree in computing from Macquarie University and a master's in technology management from the University of New South Wales.

"Confluent is a market leader in the data streaming space, addressing mission-critical problems that drive massive business impact. I'm thrilled to become part of an outstanding team that helps businesses unlock the possibilities of real-time data," he said.

"One of my goals will be getting to know our customers and the innovative use cases they're deploying the platform to deliver true time to value. Our continued commitment to delighting our customers and delivering a world class experience is top of mind, and we will continue to invest further in our support and services capabilities for the APAC region.

"In addition, our partners play a pivotal role in building our presence in the region and we will look to double-down on focused partners to help us accelerate our revenue growth while supporting the Kafka eco-system."
