Vice President Cloud & Service Providers - APJ
Asanga Wanigatunga is Veeam’s Vice President for Cloud and Service Providers for Asia Pacific & Japan based in Sydney, Australia. He is responsible for leading teams across the APJ region to grow Veeam’s cloud business across the region.
Veeam has seen significant growth across the APJ region in recent years as more and more businesses are adopting a hybrid-cloud or cloud-first business approach. In this role, Asanga will further spearhead the adoption of Veeam’s cloud solutions by cloud providers and service providers within the APJ region, ensuring that enterprises of all sizes are able to secure their data offsite in a simple, secure and fully integrated way.
Asanga’s most recent position was serving as the director for end-user computing cloud services for APJ at VMware, where he spent the last three years developing the end-user computing cloud ecosystem across the region with service providers and telecommunications companies. He successfully grew this line of business at a rate of more than 130 percent year-on-year and was instrumental in constructing cloud-led multi-million-dollar competitive bids with system integrators and system outsourcers (SISOs) and mobile operators in the region. His tenures at VMware lasted seven years and prior to that, he was a technology specialist for endpoint management at Symantec.
Asanga holds a Bachelors of Computer Science.
