Edgar Dias to Lead F5 Networks’ Channel Biz in APAC
F5 announced the appointment of Edgar Dias as Regional Vice President of Channel and Partnerships for Asia Pacific. In his new role, he will drive the company’s channel and partners’ strategy across the region and scale the company’s partner ecosystem.
Dias joined F5 in 2018 as the Regional Vice President of F5 India and SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation). He was responsible for scaling the business operations and bringing multi-cloud application services offerings and managed security services to Indian enterprises. In this role, he has overseen a significant revenue growth in the region, delivered superior customer experience, and successfully expanded F5’s footprint across India and SAARC.
“Partners have always been a key part of F5’s overall growth strategy. With this appointment, I am excited to take our partners ecosystem to the next level- accelerating growth and offering greater value to our partners,” said Dias.
As digital transformation continues to be a strategic aspect of customers’ business plans, a healthy partner network is critical in enabling customers’ technology transformation. In the past two years, F5 has made significant investments across the channel and partner organization, including the launch of Unity+ channel partner program last September.
Under Dias’ leadership, F5 will continue to place strong emphasis on channel and partnerships across Asia Pacific.
Dias brings over 25 years of experience to the role. Prior to F5, he was the Managing Director of India and SAARC at ServiceNow and earlier he headed Brocade Communications.
Dias will continue in his role as the Managing Director of India and SAARC until the search for his replacement is completed.
