Cocks joins NTT's global executive team after leading the company's go-to-market business in the Asia Pacific region, and more recently as chief technology officer. 

He will report directly to NTT chief executive officer Jason Goodall, and will relocate from Singapore to his native UK.

"Our go-to-market strategy over the coming months will be a core component of the new NTT as we come together as one company," Goodall says. 

"I know Andy will lead his team to success as we take our unparalleled capabilities to market and help clients around the world do great things every day."
