Data analytics and data integration software vendor Qlik has appointed Geoff Thomas as senior vice president for Asia-Pacific, replacing Julian Quinn.

A Qlik spokesperson told CRN that Quinn retired after three years in the role, and is moving back to Australia.

Thomas is based in Singapore, like Quinn before him, and is responsible for Qlik’s business and operations for the region.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to expand Qlik’s business in this diverse market and region,” Thomas said.

“Qlik is well poised to become the market leader in Asia Pacific given the region’s burgeoning opportunities, with many enterprises yet to fully scale the use of data and analytics to their advantage.”

Thomas last held the role of APJ vice president of security vendor OneLogin. He also worked in executive roles at D2L, Polycom and Juniper Networks, after a 17-year stint at Microsoft.

“We’re at a new stage of our business with our end-to-end data integration and analytics capabilities, and our focus is on transforming our customers’ business through data to solve their most challenging problems,” Qlik executive vice president for worldwide sales Christopher Jones said.

“We’re confident Geoff will fully leverage the market opportunity, and I look forward to working closely with him and the team to help customers realise and unlock the full value of data.”
