Based in Singapore, Eid is responsible for managing and enabling CyberArk’s channel organisation within the region. Formerly director of distribution Asia Pacific and Japan for Symantec, Eid also held several senior channel management roles at Cisco in Europe and across the Asia Pacific region. 

During this time, he led distribution for South East Asia and was responsible for setting and executing on the channel and commercial market strategy for Cisco in the ASEAN region. Before joining Cisco, Eid worked for Sony, Novell and Compaq in various sales and marketing roles.
