Tibco Software has named former Zuora Asia Pacific executive, John Kearney, as its new regional vice president for Australia and New Zealand.

According to Kearney’s LinkedIn profile, he took the role with Tibco Software in December 2017.

Based in Sydney, Kearney will be responsible for accelerating growth in the region, driving strong customer engagement and strengthening the integration, analytics and event-processing software vendor’s partner and alliance networks locally.

“We’re pleased to welcome John to TIBCO,” Tibco Asia Pacific and Japan general manager, Erich Gerber, said. “His extensive industry experience – particularly as it relates to cloud offerings – along with his passion and tenacity are ideal to meet the potential for our integration and analytics solutions in this market.”

Kearney, whose previous role was head of sales for Asia Pacific at Zuora, claims more than two decades of experience in global and regional sales management for enterprise software companies, including a 10-year stint at CA Technologies.

In his role at Zuora, which he stepped into in 2015, Kearney was responsible for accelerating Zuora’s presence across the Asia-Pacific region, focusing on business development and revenue growth, as well as reinforcing the company’s position within the subscription economy.

Kearney has also done time at workforce and project management software maker, Replicon, Niko and Retriever Communications.

“I am excited to get fully immersed in my role at Tibco and maintain its momentum in the A/NZ market with new opportunities,” Kearney said in a statement.

“I am looking forward to leading the growth of Tibco’s integration and analytics solutions in the region and expanding its breadth of customers and partners.”
