Global data management and analytics provider Cloudera has appointed 20 year sales maagement and SaaS veteran Robert Yue as its new Vice President and Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).

Yue, who is based in Sydney, commenced in his new role on Monday and follows a 20 year career spanning hardware, software, and services to provide customer solutions across banking, finance, retail, manufacturing, utilities, and the public sector.

Prior to his appointment, Yue held the role of Vice President and General Manager of Apptio for four years and was a previous Vice President of Jive Software for over three years for the Asia Pacific and Japanese markets.

He also held the role of Vice President and Managing Director of SuccessFactors and worked for Hewlett Packard (HP) as General Manager after being promoted from Sales Director for HP’s Software and Solutions.

Yue joined HP following its acquisition in 2006 of Mercury Interactive where he worked for eight years in various sales and management roles.

Cloudera Vice President of Asia Pacific, Mark Micallef, says he’s delighted to welcome Robert Yue to the Cloudera APAC leadership team.

“The ANZ region continues to be one of the world’s fastest adopters of cloud technologies. Our customers are looking for flexibility and security with respect to cloud environments that will not only accelerate their transformation efforts but enable them to deliver more value across their business, leveraging data, analytics and artificial intelligence (AI), he said.

“We are delighted to welcome Robert to our team and are confident that his deep SaaS knowledge will be invaluable in supporting our customers on their hybrid cloud journeys.”

Yue says he is excited to be leading the Cloudera ANZ team and is looking forward to helping Cloudera customers drive more cloud momentum at such a key time in their digital transformation journeys.

“I’m very pleased to be joining Cloudera at such a pivotal time. Many businesses across ANZ are now in recovery mode, following continued COVID-19 disruption.

“The future is hybrid cloud and I’m looking forward to leading our team as we help our customers and partners successfully unlock their potential. Our focus will continue to place our customers at the centre of everything we do while also strengthening our partner relationships to drive more strategic value.
