Former Oracle veteran charged with expanding NetSuite’s A/NZ footprint

“We expect to see strong growth across all of our three Asia Pacific business divisions – Asia, Australia/New Zealand and Japan.”

NetSuite has appointed Lee Thompson as its Senior Vice President and GM, Asia Pacific & Japan, charged with heading up the company’s sales operations across the region.

Also tasked with taking NetSuite’s footprint in the region to “another level”, Thompson brings more than 20 years of sales leadership experience to the company, working for high tech companies including TechnologyOne, Oracle and Salesforce.com.

“Lee’s proven track record in achieving explosive sales growth within the region makes him a perfect fit for NetSuite, as we look to continue to grow within the Asia Pacific region,” says Marc Huffman, President of Worldwide Sales and Distribution, NetSuite.

“Asia Pacific is a key revenue-generating engine for NetSuite and a region in which we plan to make ongoing significant investments.

“Under Lee’s leadership, we expect to see strong growth across all of our three Asia Pacific business divisions – Asia, Australia/New Zealand and Japan.”

Before joining NetSuite, Thompson was Operating Officer at TechnologyOne and prior to TechnologyOne, he was Senior Vice President of Corporate Sales at Salesforce Asia Pacific, where he was responsible for delivering a regional compound annual growth rate in sales in excess of 30 percent year-over-year during his tenure at the company.

Before that he spent 12 years at Oracle, building the vendor’s commercial sales business in Asia Pacific.

Prior to his tenure at Oracle he has held senior managerial positions at Borland, Artisoft and Pilot Software and has worked in the UK, Sweden, Australia, Canada and Singapore.

“I'm extremely proud and excited to join NetSuite and be a part of its continued growth in Asia Pacific and Japan,” Thompson adds.

“Only a handful of vendors today are true cloud companies, providing customers with multi-tenancy, a single version of the truth, multiple upgrades and all the benefits of a single application instance.

“Customers today are embracing true cloud. NetSuite was born in the cloud and it is a true cloud vendor, so joining the company was a natural choice for me.”
