Veeam Appoints Shaun McLagan as Senior Vice President, APJ
Veeam Software, the Availability for the Always-On Enterprise innovator, today announced the appointment of Shaun McLagan to lead the combined Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) region as the Senior Vice President, APJ. Veeam has created this new role after several years of strong growth to bring the APJ region together under one leader. McLagan will report directly to Peter McKay, Co-CEO and President for Veeam.

Q2 results saw total revenue bookings grow by 18 percent year-over-year in the APJ region and the cloud business reported an increase of 17 percent in Veeam Cloud and Service Providers (VCSP) transactions over the last financial year via more than 1,600 VCSPs. Within the region, Veeam customers grew to 15,300 and partners increased to 5,300, further demonstrating the importance of this region and its contribution to Veeam's overall growth.

McLagan is an industry veteran with more than 20 years' experience across sales, pre-sales and consulting roles; a global leader who has held positions with leading IT companies including EMC, Oracle and HP in Singapore, Australia and Canada. Most recently, McLagan served as Vice President of Asia Pacific and Japan for Data Protection Solutions at Dell EMC. Prior to that, he led RSA in Australia and New Zealand as General Manager.

"This is a pivotal time for Veeam, especially in the APJ region, as advances in virtualization and cloud computing are allowing organizations to accelerate digital transformation. Veeam Availability solutions for virtual, physical and cloud environments keep digital businesses "Always-On" and ensure data is always available, protected and managed," said McLagan. "The APJ region has very different dynamics as to where its growth is coming from and it's a great opportunity for me to join a company that's going through change in a tremendous market and to take the business to the next level. I will be looking to ensure that all the teams across APJ from our ProPartners to our alliance partners understand the vision of what we're going to become and for us all to get there."

McLagan will leverage his experience building relationships with business decision makers, augmenting the company's foothold in the enterprise as it continues to post double-digit revenue growth.

"Asia Pacific and Japan forms a critical region for Veeam as we are on track to be a $1.5 billion company by 2020," said Peter McKay, Co-CEO and President at Veeam. "Veeam enjoys rich relationships and synergies with partners, alliances, and customers across the region as they travel down the path toward digital transformation. Shaun brings extensive industry experience and expertise to the Veeam team and will be a strong leader to drive continued growth across APJ."
