Identity management solutions provider ForgeRock has appointed 30-year IT industry veteran John Donovan as Regional Vice President for Australia, New Zealand and ASEAN.

Donovan, based in Sydney, was previously Director of Channel Sales and General Business for VMware in Australia and New Zealand. He also worked with Novell as VP for the APAC channels ecosystem and with Symantec as Vice President of Channel Sales for APJ, Managing Director Symantec Pacific.

ForgeRock CEO Mike Ellis said Donovan’s appointment further strengthens the company’s global sales team as it grows its identity management market share in the Asia Pacific region.

Ellis said Donovan will be responsible for accelerating ForgeRock’s presence across Australia and New Zealand as well as taking on support for expansion across the broader Asia region, focusing on business development and revenue growth as well as reinforcing ForgeRock’s position “at the heart of identity management”.

“John is a results-driven and decisive executive with significant experience in delivering business IT success. He will play an integral role in our continued regional expansion, assisting clients to optimise their identity management strategies, building value relationships and substantially adding to the experience, skills base and business knowledge of ForgeRock’s consultants and partners in the region.”

Donovan has served on the board of the Business Software Association of Australia, the Internet Industry Association and was also a member of the Australian Federal Government’s Critical Infrastructure Taskforce.

In addition, he has provided information for guidance on the development of legislation relating to Cybercrime in Australia.

Commenting on his appointment, Donovan said: “With the rapid proliferation of IoT devices, digital disruption and the need to support evolving models for delivering products and services through new channels such as mobiles and APIs, ForgeRock is ideally positioned to tie everything together with its unified identity platform.

“I look forward to working with our dedicated partners to support our customers at a time when they are maturing their efforts and need identity management solutions that support their drive to innovate in the sharing economy.”
