Digital transformation solutions provider Pivotal has appointed former CA Technologies and Sun Microsystems executive, Lionel Lim, as vice-president and managing director APAC and Japan.

Industry veteran Lim joins Pivotal from CA where he was the President of Asia Pacific and Japan and prior to that in the role of President and Chief Operating Officer at Sun.

Pivotal president and chief operating officer, Bill Cook, says Lim is an industry sales veteran leading teams from “hyper growth to global scale” and has a well-earned reputation leading high-performing teams focused on customer success.

“During Lionel’s tenure as president and COO of Sun Microsystems in APJ, he was instrumental in the company’s meteoric rise and high rate of customer success in the region.”

According to Cook, Pivotal, on the eve of its third anniversary, continues to see widespread and growing demand from enterprises using Pivotal’s products and services to digitally transform their businesses and disrupt established markets.

“Customer momentum in Asia is highlighted by recent Pivotal office openings in Australia, China, (South) Korea, Japan, and Singapore. Pivotal now works with many of Asia’s fast rising startups, large enterprises, and government organisations."

In May, Pivotal announced its subscription software businesses — Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Pivotal Big Data Suite — reached financial milestones by crossing $200 million and $100 million in annual bookings run-rate, respectively.

“Pivotal is transforming how traditional enterprises and governments across Asia are doing business by equipping them with technology and next-generation software development capabilities to innovate and disrupt,” Lim said.

“Crossing the $200 and $100 million dollar milestones is a great sign that Pivotal’s cloud and analytics technologies are being embraced by customers, and I’m excited to work with our Asia team to help many more customers build and run software like Google, Uber or any venture-backed startup.”
