Anaplan has appointed David Padgett as Vice President of Sales, North and Southeast Asia, the tech company announced on 30 April.
In this role, Padgett will manage sales across Singapore, the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Greater China.
"Organizations are increasingly turning to Anaplan for more agility and actionable insights that help them make key business decisions in sales, operations and finance functions," said Samir Neji, Anaplan's Managing Director, APAC. "That demand extends to the North and Southeast Asia regions and, as a result, we are expanding our sales operations by bringing on a seasoned veteran in David."
Padgett joins Anaplan from NTT DATA Business Solutions, where he was General Manager for Southeast Asia.
Padgett brings more than 18 years of experience in enterprise planning to Anaplan, including senior positions with Utopia, Backoffice Associates, Diagonal Consulting and Hewlett-Packard.
"Anaplan is a game changer in the market - it is empowering users and raising their expectations of more value in less time - a compelling proposition our competition simply cannot match," Padgett said. "The traditional software and services market has become content with mediocre results, long projects and questionable ROI. Customers need accuracy and agility, and our real-time, in-memory platform, delivered with the convenience and cost effectiveness of the cloud, is exactly what customers are demanding."
