Japanese ICT firm Fujitsu has appointed Michael Warren as its new Malaysia country president with effect from 1 September 2013.
Fujitsu Asia regional chief executive officer Gavin Selkirk said: "Michael's strong business development track record and extensive leadership management experience will be a great asset to Fujitsu. Under his stewardship, we look forward to seeing further acceleration of the Fujitsu business in Malaysia."
Selkirk said Warren brings 25 years of leadership experience from multinationals and government-linked companies across Asia Pacific. "With Michael's substantial experience in leading the Shared Services and Outsourcing (SSO) cluster of the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC Malaysia) project under government-linked Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) Malaysia, we are confident that Michael will be able to expand the Fujitsu Cloud strategy and Managed Services business in Malaysia."
Warren's previous role was as Malaysian government ICT agency Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) vice president where he served for two years.
He started his career as analyst/programmer with DEC and eventually led the IS & Technology consulting groups for New Zealand and Malaysia. Moving on to start up the Malaysian business for 3Com, he built the business from circa US$2 million to US$22 million over a three-year period. The next seven years, Warren held both country and regional leadership positions at Getronics, Keppel Group and the Sampoerna Group before joining Logica as the APAC head from 2005 to 2008 managing 10 countries of about 500 staff and a US$200 million top line.
"I look forward to working with the team and deliver the high-level commitments of Fujitsu to customers through Fujitsu's offerings that meet the market's business needs," said Warren. "Through Fujitsu's constant pursuit of innovation, I hope to be able to help Fujitsu customers address their IT challenges and improve their daily business operations and quality of services."
