Palo Alto Networks recently announced that it has appointed Steven Scheurmann as regional vice president (RVP) for ASEAN.
He’s now responsible for overseeing the company’s business in the region, from driving revenue growth and market momentum to building the overall strategy.
“Steven joins us at a time of great momentum and change. Rapid digitalization in ASEAN is reshaping the region, bringing with it new and evolving cyber threats every day. We are glad to have him on board, and are certain that Palo Alto Networks will benefit greatly from his wide experience,” said Simon Green, president of JAPAC, Palo Alto Networks.
Working for nearly 30 years in the Asia-Pacific region, Scheurmann has assisted the public and private sectors with their investments in technology, digital transformation, and cloud adoption. His career started in the Department of Immigration and Border Protection at the Australian Embassy in Jakarta, supporting the introduction of one of the world’s first electronic visa systems. He then served in senior positions with several multinational companies and large Asian conglomerates across the region, including major software and security vendors.
Scheurmann is a recognized expert on topics such as the digital economy, cybersecurity, AI, and cloud technology. He has taught at the National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School and regularly speaks at industry events. His passion for teaching and mentoring students aligns with Palo Alto Networks’ mission to nurture future leaders and secure our digital way of life.
“I am excited to be joining one of the largest names in cybersecurity and working alongside the talented Palo Alto Networks regional team to propel our ASEAN business forward and create greater value for our customers, partners and employees. This is an exciting time as we are seeing an increase in the need to secure nations, enterprises and the community against increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks,” shared Scheurmann.
