NTT adds new face to executive lineup

Andy Cocks has been appointed to the chief go-to-market officer for technology services provider NTT. 

Launched on 1 July 2019, NTT Ltd. brought together 40,000 people from brands including NTT Communications, Dimension Data and NTT Security into one US $11 billion company.

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. 

Cocks will be responsible for leading its go-to-market practices, sales operations and partner relationships across the globe. 

Andy has more than 30 years of varied technology industry experience and expertise, spent both on the client and vendor side of the technology industry. Prior to joining NTT Andy headed up Equants Field Services Asia team and was the head of regional network planning at American Express. 

"His in-depth knowledge of how industry dynamics are shifting has meant he's played an instrumental role in shaping NTTs technology focus areas, ensuring businesses, cities and societies receive the right solutions for their digital transformations," says Goodall.

"Andy's appointment to the global executive team is reflective of his world-class contribution to our business and the global technology industry as a whole by leading the go-to-market team with great success in the Asia Pacific region," he explains. 

"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."

Cocks adds, "I'm extremely proud to lead NTTs Go-to-Market team into this new and exciting era

"Together, we've created a company that boasts industry-leading products, solutions, and managed services," he says. 

"It's important we take these to market in the right way, partnering with our clients around the world as they make use of our full range of capabilities and help to build the most innovative cities and societies," explains Cocks. 

"NTT is going to do great things and I cant wait to get started in the new role."
