Zebra Technologies raises regional stakes with new VP hire

"Asia Pacific is a key growth region for Zebra, now more than ever, on the rise of smart cities and a work force that is smarter and more connected."

Visibility solutions provider Zebra Technologies Corporation has appointed Ryan Goh as the new Vice President and General Manager of Asia Pacific, as the company strengthens its hand across the regional markets.

Bringing more than 15 years of regional leadership experience in both Zebra Technologies and Motorola Solutions, Goh's recruitment follows eight years of leading the region as Zebra APAC’s Vice President of Sales.

During this time Goh helped build a sales structure developed around Zebra’s PartnersFirst programme across Asia Pacific.

"Asia Pacific is a key growth region for Zebra, now more than ever, on the rise of smart cities and a work force that is smarter and more connected," says Anders Gustafsson, CEO, Zebra Technologies.

"These megatrends present an abundance of opportunities for Zebra and our partners, to help enterprises and governments take advantage of this connected age with Zebra’s solutions that drive improved productivity and enhanced customer experiences.

"And so, I am delighted to announce the appointment of Ryan to lead Zebra’s rapid expansion across Asia Pacific.

"I’m confident that under Ryan’s leadership, we will raise Zebra’s performance in APAC to a new level and inspire even closer relationships with our valued partners across the region."

This announcement follows Zebra’s acquisition of the Motorola Solutions’ Enterprise business last year, which has affirmed the company’s move into the provision of end-to-end solutions in the Enterprise Asset Intelligence category worldwide.

Goh succeeds Rod Rodericks who delivered "significant contributions" to the success of Zebra’s APAC region prior to the acquisition close and also was instrumental in driving the APAC integration efforts.

Rodericks is undertaking projects associated with the recent acquisition before retiring at the end of the year.

"Representing about 15% of Zebra’s total sales, APAC remains a key focus towards Zebra’s ambition to becoming a global leader in Enterprise Asset Intelligence," adds Ryan Goh, Vice President and General Manager, Zebra Technologies APAC.

"There is also great potential for the growth of IoT solutions in the region with a recent Forrester study affirming that over 85% of APAC firms believe that IoT solutions will be the most strategic technology initiative for their organisation in a decade.

"I have great confidence in our extensive local partnerships as well as the capabilities of my team. We look forward to enabling and empowering enterprises in the region to become as smart and connected as the world we live in."
