Gerry Sillars to Lead Asia Pacific Region Rahul Arora as New Regional Sales Director for India and SAARC
Skybox Security has appointed Gerry Sillars as the Vice President for Asia Pacific. In his role, Sillars will be the cor- nerstone of the company’s APAC operations, fo- cusing on the continued expansion of Skybox’s footprint in the entire region, as well as evolving the company’s channel business. Skybox experienced 433 percent year-over-year growth in APAC for 2017 – including 350 percent growth in India. Sil- lars will increase hiring in APAC to further sup- port the needs of customers and build on the company’s foundation of business. He will also focus on expanding regional distribution through resellers, system integrators and managed security service providers.
Sillars has more than 15 years of experience building scalable software businesses in APAC, including such companies as Commvault Systems, Alcatel Lucent and UpGuard. As Commvault’s first employee in APAC, he established their business in the Australia/ New Zealand region prior to building businesses throughout Asia – driving significant double and triple digit growth during his tenure. In his last two years, he served as the Worldwide VP of Commvault’s Cloud Solutions Group where he built the Commvault Global Systems Integrator group in India and developed the regional business from the ground up.
“I’m joining Skybox at an extremely exciting time. The Skybox platform serves a huge market need in this region, as there is a real thirst for solutions that simplify and automate day-to-day cybersecurity workflows and processes, especially as networks are increasing in size and getting more complex. Companies are quickly moving workloads to the cloud – or jumping to a cloud–first solution altogether. This is making the CISO’s job ever more challenging. They’re looking for a platform like Skybox that gives them a single view to their hybrid networks, and a way to easily manage and quickly address risk”
