Bringing more than 13 years of experience in technology sales and business development to the role, Bonnassie joined F5 in 2012, previously serving as the company’s vice president of sales for Northern and Eastern Europe.

“Growth in Internet users, web traffic, connected devices and applications in Asia Pacific continues to be phenomenal, and we’re seeing a rapid increase in adoption of security, mobility and cloud initiatives as a result,” Bonnassie adds.

“This is extremely exciting for F5, as we are ideally positioned to help customers reap maximum returns of their investment, and I am very eager to play a role in doing so here in Asia Pacific.”
