"In addition, Foad has demonstrated consistent leadership capabilities, been relentless in his engagement with partners to foster sales growth in the ANZ market, and was key to the sales teams' success in the region. His well-deserved promotion is part of our long-term strategy to build out a regional leadership team that represents not only the best talent in the cybersecurity industry but also the team we believe can take the company to the next level."

Farrokhnia has been with Zscaler since 2020 in the role of head of channels in Australia and New Zealand.
