US telco giant Verizon has appointed Robert Le Busque as managing director for the Asia Pacific region.

Le Busque takes up the APAC role with overall responsibility for the company’s global enterprise business, and particularly for supporting the company’s “fast-expanding enterprise customer base”.

Previously Verizon Global Enterprise’s regional managing director for Australia, New Zealand & India, Le Busque joined Verizon in 2002, and has since held a variety of different roles in the company in areas including strategy and strategic solutions, across the International region.

Le Busque succeeds Rich Montgomery, former Group Vice President, International, for Verizon, who is taking up a new role in the company’s global integrated solutions business.


Commenting on Le Busque’s appointment, Rich said: “I’m delighted that Robert is taking on the APAC MD role. He has extensive experience in driving channel, vertical market and platform sales, coupled with expertise in digital transformation, business integration and Cyber Security. He will be a real catalyst for progress in APAC.”

“2020 will be an exciting year for us as a business, and I look forward to helping our customers transform their business in partnership with Verizon,” Le Busque said.

“I have a real passion and commitment to excellence in customer service, and look forward to putting this into play for the benefit of all our APAC customers in this dynamic and rapidly growing region.”

Le Busque will be based in Sydney and will report to Massimo Peselli, Verizon Global Enterprise’s Sales group vice president.
