"I am excited to be appointed to this role and look forward to working with our partners across APAC," Tan says.
"With enterprises embracing the hybrid multi cloud, an evolved cloud approach is crucial in helping them realise the full business benefits that lie ahead. The best-in-class solutions and capabilities offered jointly by NetApp and our partners will bring transformational value to our customers across the region."
