Gibbs heads Akamai in ANZ


CDN provider Akamai Technologies has appointed Chris Gibbs to the new role of ANZ managing director and regional vice president.

"ANZ organisations are excited about the rollout of 5G, and edge compute will help them bring to market new innovations that are highly scaleable and highly secure," said Akamai APJ vice president of sales and managing director Parimal Pandya.

"Chris' excellent track record leading high-performing teams makes him the ideal choice to help our customers bring these innovations to market and lead our operations here across the region."

Gibbs brings more than twenty years of experience to Akamai.

He most recently served as APJ general manager of Aquia, and previously worked as ANZ managing director of BMC Software, APJ managing director of Endace, and vice president for global accounts at CA.

Gibbs is also on the advisory board of NewsFarm.

He holds a bachelor's degree in software engineering and an MBA, both from the University of Canberra.

"I'm excited to work with an organisation with Akamai's pedigree, and provide strategic value for our customers in the ANZ market," said Gibbs.

"In a time of accelerated mobile-driven digitalisation, this is a pivotal time for organisations across ANZ to build innovative and secure digital experiences for their users."
