New Relic, an observability platform for engineers, has announced the appointment of Kris Day as Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific and Japan, to drive expansion in the region and lead the business into its next stage of growth.
Day has over two decades of sales and leadership experience in the technology industry across Europe and the Asia Pacific region, covering hardware, software, cloud and transformation specialty sales and partner sales environments. Most recently, Day was Sales Vice President for Asia Pacific and Japan at Dell EMC, where he led multiple teams to navigate complex customer cloud and Digital Transformation journeys. He has also held senior roles at NetApp and Hewlett-Packard.
In his new role, Day will be responsible for leading New Relic’s high-performing sales teams to grow its footprint in the region, while delivering go-to-market strategies and enhancing the partner ecosystem.
Gartner’s Top Strategic Technology Trends for 2023 report has demonstrated just how important observability is to the industry, with Applied Observability cited as the second most important trend for 2023. This has also marked a shift from a reactive to proactive observability practice so that companies are able to define future business decisions.
The region has continued to demonstrate strong growth for the company with the opening of two offices in India, Bengaluru and Hyderabad over the past year covering product development, customer support, sales, marketing, developer relations, and solutions consulting. The Singapore and Australia offices were also certified as a Great Place to Work.
“I am thrilled to oversee the continued implementation of cohesive observability strategies for our customers and help to further enable our partners across the region,” said Kris Day.Click below to share this article
