Automation Anywhere's triple digit growth sees new EVP for APJ


Adrian Jones has been appointed as executive vice-president for the Asia Pacific and Japan region following Automation Anywhere's triple-digit growth.

Automation Anywhere. It is one of the top enterprise software providers in robotic process automation, and it has been growing rapidly, as companies see the value in automating certain processes that make their staff and its operations more efficient.

To further this growth, the company has decided to appoint Jones in the newly-formed role of executive vice-president for APJ, bringing "25 years of experience driving strategy and sales with some of the world’s largest technology companies" in the region, including "Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Symantec and Oracle".

Earlier this year, Automation Anywhere "announced its record, triple-digit growth and the company’s position as market leader in Asia Pacific and the Americas".

"Jones’ appointment signals the next phase in Automation Anywhere’s regional customer and partner growth, and the company’s continued investment in helping businesses across APJ innovate using robotic process automation, a newer technology which is experiencing rapid adoption and growth."

Ankur Kothari, the company's co-founder and chief revenue officer, said: “Following a record year of expansion at Automation Anywhere, we are excited to introduce Adrian as our dedicated regional lead in APJ.

"With more enterprises in this region demanding better ways to automate business processes, we have targeted APJ as a critical growth market for Automation Anywhere globally. Our continued regional growth and appointment of Adrian to EVP are testaments to this.”

Reporting to Kothari, Jones is responsible for "driving awareness of RPA in the APJ market, expanding the company’s operations and boosting customer and partner engagements across the region".

Jones said: “RPA is already bringing to life a new, digital workforce designed to automate processes and elevate human work.

“Automation Anywhere continues to make significant investments in hiring the best talent to power the region’s most innovative companies. We’re excited by the market growth opportunities now, and in the years ahead, and I look forward to strengthening our foothold in the region’s RPA arena.”

This news follows Automation Anywhere raising US$250 million, reported by iTWire, bringing the company to a US$1.8 billion valuation.

This also followed Kothari's visit to Australia earlier this year, where he spoke to the media to explain robotic process automation and why companies need the benefits, which iTWire reported on and recored on video, in full
