“We are thrilled to have Dmitri’s expertise in APJ to help lead us to the next phase of growth for customers and partners in the region.”

Prior to his appointment, Chen held a number of technology leadership positions over the last 21 years. The majority of this time, 19 years, was spent working for Dell Technologies with his most recent position being chief operating officer and vice president of specialty sales for Asia Pacific and Japan from October 2014 to November 2019.

The other positions Chen held at Dell included vice president of sales in the data protection and availability division for Asia Pacific and Japan, chief of staff for Americas sales, chief of staff for North American mid-market sales, district sales manager for the Greater Denver area and a global account manager.
