New MD for Sophos

Stuart Fisher is the new Asia Pacific MD for the security company

Sophos has appointed Stuart Fisher to the role of managing director for the Asia Pacific region, effective immediately.

He replaces Rob Forsyth who will continue with Sophos as a non-executive Director. Fisher will continue to be based in Singapore, and will report to senior vice president of Worldwide Sales and Field Operations Mike McGuinness. Formerly VP of Sales for the Asia Pacific, Fisher will now be responsible for leading regional operations and driving overall business growth for the company in the Asia Pacific, excluding Japan. “The time was ripe for Sophos to accelerate the growth across the region and Stuart has the creative energy and passion for this. Over the last 15 months, Stuart has overseen the Asia Pacific sales function, and his drive for growth has served the company, the resellers and our customers well,” says Forsyth. “He has a strong and dedicated existing team and I will be remaining in the business to support him. He has both my congratulations and best wishes.” Prior to joining Sophos in 2010, Fisher was a vice president at Sybase, an SAP company. He also held several regional-level management, sales and marketing roles in Asia Pacific at SAP between 2001 and 2009. “It’s an exciting time for Sophos, and the aggressive growth plans and level of investment we’re injecting across Asia Pacific is significant. Sophos has a highly compelling proposition to any organisation that is looking for a vendor that has a complete IT security portfolio backed by years of engineering excellence, unrivalled support and a fully engaged channel. For me, the change in role provides even greater opportunity to further escalate Sophos’s market dominance in our existing and newer emerging territories in the region, which is very appealing,” says Fisher.
