Okta picks Philip Goldie as ANZ vice president

By

Identity provider Okta has appointed Philip Goldie to the role of vice president for Australia and New Zealand.

The new role has been created in the light of the pending retirement of Okta APAC general manager Graham Sowden.

"Phil's comprehensive in-market experience and demonstrated leadership in local business development will be a great asset to the customer focus of the role, ensuring Okta has meaningful impact in both Australia and New Zealand as it continues to build momentum in the region" said Sowden.

Goldie joins Okta after spending the last 12 years Microsoft, most recently as senior director of small, medium and corporate business.

He previously worked as senior practice director at thinkGROWTH, Asia director of product and solutions marketing at Nortel, and systems engineer at Alteon WebSystems.

Goldie is also chair of the Children's Medical Research Institute's digital strategy committee.

He holds a bachelor's degree in computer science from the University of Liverpool (UK) and an MBA from the AGSM at UNSW.

"I'm absolutely thrilled to be joining a category and market defining company in Okta. I've had the privilege of working at great platform companies over my career and Okta's vision represents a great opportunity to demonstrate leadership in building to the next level of growth as the leading identity platform," said Goldie.

"There is currently opportunity to define and greatly impact our market, adding value to customers and partners in ANZ. Over the coming years Okta will become one of Australia and New Zealand's most admired places to work not only because of great people, culture and results but because of the impact this team can have in the region."
