Adam Judd joins the F5 Networks (NASDAQ: FFIV) leadership team as the new Senior Vice President, Sales, Asia Pacific. With the guidance of Executive Vice President of Worldwide Sales, John DiLullo, F5’s business influence spanning 14 countries in the Asia Pacific region would fall under the supervision of Singapore-based Judd.
“The rate of change in our Cloud, Security, IoT and Service Provider markets is accelerating at a breathtaking pace. This is especially true in F5’s Asia Pacific Theatre where Digital disruption is changing how more than 4B people interact within new data- and connectivity-driven economies,” said John DiLullo.
DiLullo thinks that it is already high time to employ someone he describes as “a rare find and uniquely qualified” to continue the legacy in the region. Adam was commended for his experience in Asia-based technology and channels experience across countless vertical markets and customer segments for over 25 years.
I am thrilled to join F5 at this turning point of Asia Pacific’s digital transformation. Applications and data assets are playing a critical role in driving this new economy. By leveraging F5’s unique point-of-view on applications and security, we are in pole position to empower businesses here in moving faster, smarter and safer.
I am excited to work closely with our customer and partner ecosystem to help them deliver the competitive edge they need to stay ahead of the game.
Judd has held various leadership roles in the IT, Telecommunications and Networking industry for more than two decades, prior to joining F5. As former Vice President, APAC at Brocade Communications, he successfully led a sales team of nearly 350 people operating in more than 20 countries. Asia Pacific management proves to be Adam’s forte through similar positions at Tortuga Mobile, Juniper Networks, Unisphere, Bay Networks, and Nortel Networks.
