Open platform provider of identity management solutions, ForgeRock, has named Aled Miles as its new global sales executive vice-president. Miles will report directly to the company’s CEO, Mike Ellis.
ForgeRock said, in a statement, that the hire was done to expand its global reach and drive growth within the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia-Pacific regions. It added that the new appointment further strengthens the company’s global sales team as ForgeRock grows its identity management market share within these regions.
According to Ellis, Miles will be instrumental in pursuing global opportunities for the company to meet the increasing demand for identity management solutions that enable enterprises' digital transformation and IoT strategies.
“This is a strategic hire for us, particularly as we accelerate expansion into new regional and vertical markets. As executive vice president, Miles will be responsible for global sales strategy and execution,” Ellis stated.
Miles said with digital transformation taking hold, the explosion of IoT devices, and smart-city initiatives taking shape around the world, ForgeRock aims to tie everything together with its unified identity platform.
“Exciting opportunities are ahead of the company, and I look forward to working with both the sales and wider ForgeRock teams to help drive continued marketshare growth,” he said.
