CyberArk bolsters A/NZ team with 'channel-focused' new hires

28 Oct 16

CyberArk has appointed a new regional director for Australia and New Zealand to give a boost to its APAC and Japan team.

Matthew Brazier will join the cyber security organisation and will be based in Sydney. He has extensive experience in building high performing sales teams within security vendors such as Fortinet and Check Point. Most recently, he was at BT Global Services before joining CyberArk

His focus is to drive further growth through strategic account development and a channel-focused go-to-market model.

“Matthew is a team-focused individual who will lead our efforts to help customers adopt a ‘post breach’ mentality," says Vincent Goh, vice president of Sales, Asia Pacific and Japan, CyberArk.

“As organisations in Australia and New Zealand look to implement the security policies and tool to help them deal with attackers who may already be in their networks, Matthew’s consultative approach will be essential in ensuring that CyberArk will be their partner of choice as they seek to mitigate the associated risks.”  

The company has also announced Jeffrey Kok as the new senior director of presales for Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ).
Jeffrey Kok has been put in charge to identify the critical business issues and drivers while nurturing opportunities throughout the sales cycle.

His role will be to forge deeper customer relationships, strengthen collaborations and form a larger network of alliances with both existing and prospective customers, as well as CyberArk’s partner community in APJ.
“An established pre-sales leader and security technology professional, Jeffrey is the outstanding choice to lead our pre-sales organisation in the Asia Pacific and Japan region,” says Goh.

“His wide ranging set of skills in technical, pre and post-sales environments as well as cyber security domain knowledge, especially in identity, network and cryptography, are fundamental as we continue to build a world class Asia Pacific organisation.”
