Ivanti, the automation platform that discovers, manages, secures and services IT assets from cloud to edge, has announced the appointment of Liam Ryan as the company’s new Vice President of Sales for the APAC region. Ryan’s appointment highlights Ivanti’s commitment to not only deliver market leading solutions to the APAC region, but also the importance of the channel and growing business together with partners. In his role, he will be charged with managing channel activities, go-to-market sales, identifying new market opportunities, leading client retention and improving customer experiences.
Ryan has more than 20 years of experience in the IT industry working in various technical roles, which then progressed into sales and operations responsibilities within both direct and indirect markets. He joins Ivanti following a nine-year stint at Infor, most recently as its Vice President of Channel and Alliances for the APJ and India regions.
“Ivanti is all about providing great experiences for our customers,” said Helen Masters, SVP of Ivanti. “We recognised the need for a strategic leader who could not only ensure our customers are getting the best solutions and support, but also lead our rapidly expanding team in the APAC and India regions. As Ivanti continues to grow and evolve to meet the needs of our customers, we’re thrilled to bring on a leader like Liam who can help further our mission.”
“I’m very excited to be joining Ivanti,” Ryan said. “I’ve seen the explosive growth that Ivanti has achieved over the last year and I relish the challenge of continuing this trajectory. The IT industry is at a critical point where we are seeing rapidly changing security challenges, a skills shortage and a dispersed workforce. All these issues combined are providing the perfect storm for IT teams to manage. I look forward to taking these challenges on and delivering the solutions and support that our customers depend on.”
