New Relic has promoted Ben Goodman to Senior Vice President, Sales and General Manager for Asia Pacific and Japan.
Previously Goodman was the Senior Vice President for ASEAN, India, Greater Hong Kong and Korea upon joining New Relic last year. He will report to Steve Hurn, Executive Vice President, worldwide sales at New Relic.
With over 20 years of experience in the technology industry, Goodman has led high-performing sales teams, mapped go-to-market strategies and driven channel growth. Prior to joining New Relic, he was Managing Director and Head of DX at Adobe Asia-Pacific. Goodman has also held senior regional roles at EMC, Dell EMC, and Pure Storage.
“Organisations are looking to rapidly enhance their digital presence and offerings now more than ever – a move in many ways hastened by the pandemic with record numbers of users flocking online for services,” Hurn said.
“After excelling while overseeing much of Asia in a short span, Ben is now stepping up into a wider role in Asia Pacific to drive our growth by helping these organisations seize the power of their data with New Relic's leading observability platform in order to deliver great digital experiences for their customers.”
“The demand for observability services shows no signs of abating, and I’m thrilled to be stepping into this new role to help more organisations and government agencies ensure that their digital investments deliver value to all stakeholders,” Goodman said.
“Today, NewRelic’s observability tools are behind some of the world’s biggest and most highly regarded providers of ecommerce, food delivery, healthcare, broadband and telecommunications, sports and entertainment. I’m excited at the opportunities ahead for New Relic to enhance the digital experiences in even more industries throughout the region.”
