Symantec has appointed former Oracle general manager, Adrian Jones, as senior vice president for its Asia Pacific and Japan region.

According to a company statement, Jones will be responsible for growing the company’s presence and market position across the region, in addition to leading business operations and business development.

Jones has held senior leadership roles with technology companies across multiple geographies. Most recently he was general manager and senior vice president of Oracle Asia Pacific.

Prior to joining Oracle he was senior vice president of enterprise servers, storage, and networking, responsible for driving global customer relationships and channel partnerships at Hewlett Packard in Asia Pacific and Japan.

He also held the position of vice president and general manager of HP's Americas Solution Partners, managing all channel partnerships throughout Canada.

Symantec interim president and chief executive officer, Mike Brown, said he believes that "Adrian’s drive to grow the business, his experience running global field organisations, and track record of managing a $2B multi-product business across Asia Pacific and Japan, was a real asset to the business,”

Jones said Symantec’s tremendous assets and scale positioned it uniquely to capture an increasing share of this market.

“I am looking forward to leading the team, accelerating the company’s growth, and solidifying Symantec’s position as a market leader in Asia Pacific and Japan,” he said.
