Arbor Networks has today announced the appointment of Jeff Buhl as the company’s vice president of the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.
In this role, Buhl will be responsible for driving Arbor’s sales and channel initiatives in the APAC region as the company continues its expansion there.
Bringing seventeen years of industry experience to the role, Buhl previously held senior leadership roles at NQ Mobile, Good Technology and BEA Systems.
“Jeff brings the right mix of service provider and channel expertise that will allow him to make an immediate impact for Arbor in Asia,” says Colin Doherty, president, Arbor Networks.
“DDoS and advanced threats are not a regional problem, but a global one. Arbor’s deployment in global service provider networks, combined with our enterprise solutions, makes for a very powerful combination.
"Jeff’s extensive business development and sales experience will help Arbor build on its success to date and further penetrate the market."
The company has been active in APAC nearly a decade, gaining significant traction with some of the region’s network operators, including Tata Communications, SK Telecom, China Telecom, Hunan Mobile, KDDI and StarHub among others.
“This is an exciting time to be joining Arbor as the company has made great strides in APAC, especially among major wire-line and mobile operators,” Buhl said.
I’m really looking forward to helping the company continue to expand its APAC footprint as Arbor continues to help network operators in the region protect their infrastructure from DDoS and other advanced threats targeting them today.”
