Digital design platform InVision has appointed former vice-president at US software firm Acquia, Tom Richardson, as its first Asia-Pacific managing director.

InVision says Richardson’s appointment comes as its business expands rapidly across the APAC region, while "working with 6000 companies" in the region including ANZ Bank, Atlassian, Qantas, Woolworths and Telstra.

It says Richardson will continue to lead growth in the region, working closely with the team in Sydney and across the APAC region “to orient businesses around design thinking”.

“As well as sharing lessons from global customers such as Airbnb, Amazon, Netflix and Uber, the regional team will also focus on bringing together the most innovative companies in APAC, such as Atlassian, Rakuten, Samsung and Hyundai, to learn from each other,” InVision said.

As well as his former role at Acquia, Richardson was an adviser to the Cloud Software Association.

Richardson also spent two years in Japan working for the Tokyo 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Bid Committee, and a year in Shanghai with WPP Group.

On his appointment, Richardson said: “I’m extremely excited to be heading up the InVision team in APAC as we look to bring our platform to more customers and increase awareness of the importance of design.

“The screen has become the most important place in the world so businesses need to focus on creating user experiences and products that consumers love. Digital products are the engine of the region’s consumer economies, and InVision is uniquely placed to power this transformation.

“We’re scaling at an electrifying pace and I look forward to helping to grow one of the most exciting software companies in the world.”
