APACTop Stories

Neo4j, a graph database and analytics leader, has hired technology veteran Kristen Pimpini (KP) to lead the company’s Asia-Pacific region. KP oversees a revenue team across field and partner operations, services and customer success organisations, collaborating cross-functionally with go-to-market and engineering operations. He reports to global Chief Revenue Officer Alyson Welch.

KP’s appointment comes as APAC ranks as Neo4j’s fastest-growing region, with strong double-digit growth in 2023 driven by high cloud and generative AI customer adoption and continued growth in 2024. Enterprise customers include Far EasTone Telecommunication Co, Healius, Keppel, Mercari, Natixis, PT Pegadaian, Tata Consultancy Services, Tokopedia, Western Australia Police, WorkSafe New Zealand, Woven Planet Holdings and many others.

“KP’s track record is rooted in his relentless commitment to strategic client relationships, value delivery, and a collaborative winning culture where everyone has a voice and a purpose to deliver brilliant customer experiences,” said Alyson Welch, Chief Revenue Officer, Neo4j. “He is the perfect leader to scale our operations and customers’ success across the region.” 

KP previously led APJ for Twilio. He has more than 20 years of sales leadership with companies across Asia that also include Braemac, Telstra and Aspect Software (now Alvaria). He succeeds Nik Vora.

Neo4j in December 2023 was named a Visionary in the 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Database Management Systems (DBMS) among 19 other recognised global DBMS vendors.  The company last year added native vector search within its core database capabilities and announced strategic integrations with Google Cloud Vertex AI and AWS Bedrock that increase GenAI performance and prevent hallucinations. 

“Neo4j is at the epicenter of an enormous opportunity as graph technology reshapes the database market and drives better GenAI and analytics outcomes,” said KP. “I’m honoured to join this generational company whose customers are achieving transformative results for their data and their business.”
