Business execution software vendor, SuccessFactors, has hired Ben Corser to take responsibility for its Asia Pacific channels and alliances partners.
Prior to joining SuccessFactors, Corser was the senior director of channel sales and operations for Asia Pacific at RSA/EMC. He was also the director of enterprise business channel sales for Asia Pacific at Nokia and has also spent time at Microsoft and Johnson & Johnson.
“As business execution continues to be adopted rapidly across Asia Pacific, we needed the ability to deliver value back to organisations via a world class partner program,” SuccessFactors Asia Pacific vice-president, Murray Sargant, said. “Ben’s experience with Asia Pacific Partners will allow us to provide better support to our existing partner ecosystem while also being a catalyst to bring on new partners as we further consolidate our business in the region.
Sargant said it plans to continue to invest in the Asia Pacific region, specifically within its partner community. Corser will be based in Singapore and his responsibilities include driving greater geographic coverage and address local requirements faster, Sargant said.
The vendor will be staging an event called SuccessConnect at the Gold Coast from August 18 to 19, directly followed by the annual Inform conference on August 18 - 19.
