Virtualisation and cloud computing vendor Citrix has appointed 20-year sales industry veteran and former SAP executive Colin Brookes as senior vice-president of sales and service for the Asia Pacific & Japan region.

Brookes most recently served as president and managing director of Australia and New Zealand for SAP. Prior to this, he held senior sales executive and operational roles in Europe and APJ with Software AG, FormScape Software, Knowledge Support Systems, and Computer Associates.

In his new role, Brookes will be based in Singapore, responsible for Citrix sales and services operations by driving revenue, executing an aggressive growth strategy, and cultivating the company’s partner ecosystem.

Brookes will report directly to Mark Ferrer, executive vice-president and chief revenue officer.

“I’m passionate about enabling businesses to simplify their operations as they equip themselves for an increasingly digital economy. I’m thrilled to join Citrix at this exciting time, to drive the company’s cloud-focused approach into the APJ region,” said Brookes.

“Citrix is a world-class enabler of digital business with solutions that deliver the experience, security and choice that people and organisations need to innovate, engage customers and be productive – anytime and anywhere.”

Citrix also announced the appointment of Lynette Clunies-Ross in a new role as regional vice-president, chief operating officer, reporting to Brookes.

In her new role Clunies-Ross will be responsible for building the growth engine for Citrix in Asia Pacific & Japan, which includes strategy and planning, enterprise solution sales and readiness, and customer care to support deal execution and sales operations for the region.

She is a tech industry veteran with over 25 years of experience in senior technical, sales and operations leadership roles in Asia and, most recently, she served as vice-president, strategy and operations, Asia Pacific, for Oracle. She has held similar senior roles with SAS Institute, and worked for IBM prior to SAS.

Originally from Australia, Clunies-Ross has lived and worked across the region and will be based in Singapore.
