Veritas Technologies has appointed James Leong as new country manager of Singapore following an internal promotion at the data management vendor.
In the newly expanded role, Leong is responsible for leading Veritas’ overall business strategy, in addition to driving sales operations and growth in the city-state.
“We are delighted to have James lead our Singapore business,” said Ravi Rajendran, managing director of Asia South at Veritas. “At Veritas, we value the importance of empowering our talents to succeed and grow.
"In his new role, I am confident that James will continue to deliver excellent results for Veritas Singapore by strengthening on our existing customers and partners’ relationships.”
Leveraging enterprise market experience, Leong joined Veritas from Symantec, where he helped achieve “significant growth” for the vendor’s public sector business. Prior to Symantec, Leong worked for IBM Singapore, leading the IBMx86 server business for more than eight years.
“In today’s digital economy, technology is changing businesses faster than ever,” added Leong. “Data is driving business transformation and offers both amazing opportunities and enormous challenges.
“I look forward to leading the team to not only drive greater productivity for our customers and partners, but more importantly, to abstract IT complexity so that they can focus on achieving positive business outcomes.”
