HPE channel boss joins Aspect Software as new APAC SVP

Aspect Software, a provider of native consumer engagement, workforce optimisation, and self-service solutions, announced the appointment of Krishna Arani to SVP of APAC sales. 

He comes with 30 years of broad enterprise software, storage solutions, and channels experience. 

Before joining Aspect, Arani was the VP and GM of channels and service providers for Hewlett Packard Enterprise, an information technology and services company, in APAC. 

Prior to this, he held a leadership position at NetApp, a data services company for hybrid cloud environments, where he grew revenue by nearly 400%. 

There he built partnerships with large system integrators and adopted a highly solution-focused customer-centric mindset.

He has also held executive sales positions at i2, Portal, Siebel and Oracle.

Aspect president Chris Kozio says, “As the fastest growing region for Aspect last year, Asia Pacific represents a huge opportunity for channel expansion and revenue growth for the company.

“Krishna's enterprise software experience with some of the leading technology companies in the world will be a great asset as we accelerate the availability of our cloud solutions in the region.”

“We will look to Krishna to build on the already strong channel partner relationships we have in APAC while also forging new alliances that will expand our market presence and create new revenue opportunities for Aspect."

Aspect helps enterprises break down the walls between people, processes, systems and data sources, supposedly allowing organisations to unite around the customer journey. 

By developing fully native interaction management, workforce optimisation and self-service capabilities within a single customer engagement centre, they aim to enable dynamic, conversational interactions and create a frictionless omni-channel customer experience.

Arani says, “Aspect's reputation as a global leader in the region in combination with their impressive growth has made joining the company a very exciting opportunity.

"Aspect's comprehensive portfolio of customer engagement solutions, in combination with the talent I see here, gives me great confidence that we will be able to dramatically accelerate our momentum in APAC."
