Andrew Sotiropoulos, a senior business executive and veteran of the IT sector, has been named by NetApp, a multinational, cloud-driven, data-centric software firm, as Senior Vice President and General Manager for Asia Pacific (APAC).

Andrew will oversee NetApp's operations and lead the company's regional expansion strategies from his base in Singapore. His top priorities, which he reports to NetApp President Cesar Cernuda on, are expanding NetApp's enterprise storage and cloud business, bolstering its partner ecosystem, and maintaining its dominance in local markets.

With more than three decades of expertise in the technology sector, Andrew has led pan-regional teams to spur company expansion and seize new possibilities.

After overseeing NetApp's sales teams in Asia Pacific for almost four years, Andrew succeeds Sanjay Rohatgi, who will be leaving the organisation to seek possibilities outside of the firm.

"As a global company, and having spent many years in APAC myself, we appreciate the importance of building and strengthening our long-standing relationships with business communities in the region," said Cesar Cernuda, President at NetApp. "I am delighted to have Andrew join us to continue the growth of our business as we empower our customers wherever they are on their respective cloud transformation journeys."
