Back-up and recovery specialist Commvault has appointed former Autodesk senior sales executive Patrick Williams as vice-president of Sales for Asia Pacific.

Williams brings extensive sales leadership and experience to Commvault and most recently served as senior vice-president Sales, Asia Pacific at Autodesk. Prior to that, he was vice-president Sales at Mentor Graphics, an international design software company, based in Tokyo, where he more than doubled company revenues during his eight-year tenure.

Williams is based in Singapore at Commvault’s regional headquarters and succeeds Owen Taraniuk who has recently been appointed Commvault’s head of Worldwide Partnerships and Market Development.

“We’re confident that Patrick will continue build on our success in APAC, driving even greater growth across Commvault’s customer and partner ecosystem,” said Ron Miiller, senior vice-president, Worldwide Sales, Commvault.

“Furthermore, his 20 years of experience leading global brands directly aligns with our strategy to further expand and scale our global business.”

Williams said both public and private organisations, across the APAC region, are looking to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives.

But, he says, they are also tasked with keeping up with an increasingly complex regulatory and threat landscape, while effectively managing and protecting large volumes of data, and Commvault is helping customers meet these challenges and drive their digital transformation with powerful simplicity by unlocking the strategic value of their data.

“Commvault has seen great traction in the APAC region over the past few years and I look forward to building on it,” Williams said.

“With a proven track record and innovative new solutions like Commvault HyperScale Technology, I’m excited to deepen the relationships we have with current customers and partners, as well as uncover new opportunities that take Commvault to the next level.”
