Infoblox Inc., the automated network control company, today announced the appointment of Henk Jan Spanjaard as Vice President of Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), effective immediately. Spanjaard will be responsible for leading the Infoblox EMEA team in helping enterprises and channel partners prepare for the networking needs of the future.
In the second quarter of Infoblox’s fiscal year, EMEA revenue increased 35 percent year-over-year. Infoblox has also recently opened new offices in Russia, Turkey and the UAE. And last month, the company launched a suite of new products to give customers greater control of their corporate IT networks with increased security and availability.
“We are pleased with our growth in EMEA in the second quarter and are very fortunate to have someone with Henk’s expertise join the EMEA team to help continue our growth in the region,” said Robert Thomas, CEO of Infoblox. “With our expanded portfolio of products and growing presence in EMEA, Henk will be instrumental in educating the market on how Infoblox can help organisations better manage the demands put on their networks.”
Spanjaard is tasked with promoting the value of the Infoblox suite of automated network control solutions to prospective and existing customers, as well as the Infoblox pan-European channel ecosystem. Spanjaard, who is multilingual, brings with him a strong sales and technical heritage in the network storage, network management and security market segments. He has held senior managerial positions in the EMEA networking industry for over 20 years, selling solutions from leading vendors such as NetApp, Mu Dynamics and Imperva.
“I believe the European networking market is on the brink of very substantial changes, as global organisations address today’s forces such as bring-your-own-device, cloud computing, migration to IPv6 and the evolving cyber-threat landscape, and prepare themselves for a future of software defined networking,” added Spanjaard. “What attracted me to Infoblox was its vision for the future networking needs of organisations and the company’s strategy to help customers create a strategic control point for their hardware defined networks, through value add software.”
Infoblox (NYSE:BLOX) helps customers control their networks. Infoblox solutions help over 6,300 enterprises and service providers in 25 countries make their networks more available, secure and automated.
