New Relic has apppointed Kris Day as Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) to drive expansion in the region and lead the business into its next stage of growth.
Day has more than two decades of sales and leadership experience in the technology industry across Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, covering hardware, software, cloud and transformation specialty sales, and partner sales environments.
He was most recently Sales Vice President for Asia Pacific and Japan at Dell EMC, where he led multiple teams to navigate complex customer cloud and digital transformation journeys. He has also held senior roles at NetApp and Hewlett-Packard.
In his new role, Day will be responsible for leading New Relic’s high-performing sales teams to grow its footprint in the region, while delivering go-to-market strategies and enhancing the partner ecosystem.
“Kris joins New Relic at a time when we are witnessing organisations exploring a much broader, full lifecycle observability strategy. They are also navigating the increased complexity of multi-cloud environments and the modernisation of application architectures,” said Mark Dodd, Chief Revenue Officer of New Relic.
“The APJ market represents a strong growth opportunity for New Relic, with room for greater adoption in the more mature markets of Australia, New Zealand and Japan. There are also significant opportunities for growth in the technology hubs of Southeast Asia and Korea, and an opportunity to tap into the rapidly growing Indian market, which is home to a vast number of the world’s developers,” said New Relic Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific and Japan, Kris Day.
