Cohesity has appointed Sheena Chin as managing director of sales across ASEAN, recruiting the industry executive from Veritas.

Based in Singapore, Chin is tasked with driving the vendor’s go-to-market strategy across the region, through enhancing engagement levels with channel partners, systems engineering, operations and marketing teams.

“Sheena has an incredible wealth of experience in the industry and proven expertise building enterprise sales operations in the ASEAN market,” said William Ho, vice president of sales across Asia Pacific, Cohesity.

“She understands the challenges customers face and works tirelessly with partners, service providers, and other key stakeholders to deliver solutions that have a major impact. We’re thrilled to have her join the team.”

Leveraging more than 20 years in-market experience, Chin joins the storage vendor from Veritas, having previously served as country director of Singapore for more than five years.

Prior to this, Chin worked as an enterprise sales director for Symantec, growing the company’s cyber security and information management software business in Southeast Asia.

“Cohesity is transforming how organisations protect and manage their data to extract maximum value from it,” Chin added. “I’m excited to build on the incredible momentum Cohesity has already achieved in the Asia Pacific region and elsewhere around the world.”

The ASEAN recruitment drive follows the appointment of Ho as new regional leader in June, in a move designed to help regional customers overcome data fragmentation challenges.
