Australian-born AWS specialist Versent has made several senior appointments in its Singapore operation.

The latest senior hires at Versent largely involve sales and engineering roles.

"We have doubled our customer base since late 2020, with the majority of work coming from the banking and insurance space, and we delivered triple digit percentage growth this past financial year," said Versent Asia general manager Jordan Windebank.

"We have primarily been hiring engineers to meet continued demand from our customers in delivering complex cloud migration projects, and some additional delivery management roles to support these projects."

Jason Letton joins the company as head of sales, Asia.

He previously worked for IBM – most recently as ASEAN head of strategic sales – and has held senior sales roles at HPE, TCS, Dell, Xchanging, Mphasis and IPsoft.

He joined the company from NTT, where he was APAC data and analytics practice lead, and previously held regional roles at BT and Navteq after more than a decade as senior managing consultant at IBM Global Services.

Scola holds a master's degree in international management from the University of Denver.

Windebank added "We are seeing increased demand for experienced engineering teams that can build complex cloud environments and migrate core applications – especially with organisations who have already started their cloud journey but have realised they need deeper experience to deliver on their cloud agenda at the speed they are expecting.

"There is a serious lack of experienced cloud capability in the Singapore market, and we see demand continuing to accelerate over the coming six months.

"We remain focused on supporting our existing client base in the successful delivery of their cloud programmes, whilst continually looking for the most complex projects in the market where we can make a real difference. At our current trajectory, we are expecting to hire another 30-40 positions before the end of 2021."

Versent has created 28 new senior roles in Singapore since the beginning of the year, and its team there is now more than 60 strong.
