Riverbed has a new ANZ vice president

04 Feb 16

Riverbed, the application performance infrastructure vendor, has appointed Keith Buckley as regional vice president for Australia and New Zealand. In this role, Buckley will focus on expanding business in the ANZ region and helping customers understand the benefits of hybrid IT environments.

Buckley joins Riverbed from Intel Security (McAfee), where he served as managing director for the past three years.

Overall, Buckley has more than 18 years’ experience, and has held senior leadership positions at EMC, Symantec and Dell.

At Riverbed, he will lead the region’s sales team and drive strategic operations, planning and the growth of the company’s business in ANZ.

“Keith is an industry stalwart and is the ideal candidate to lead the Australian and New Zealand business at a time of rapidly evolving, highly complex and hybrid IT environments,” says Bjorn Engelhardt, Riverbed senior vice president for Asia Pacific and Japan.

“His passion and leadership as a business manager will be invaluable as more companies turn to us to help them transform application performance into a competitive advantage,” he says.

Buckley succeeds Ian Raper, who has been appointed to the new role of vice president of solutions for Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ).

Raper led the ANZ business for more than five years and has been a part of Riverbed since 2008.

In his new role, he will focus on solution selling to strategic accounts and aligning the Riverbed partner ecosystem to support this transition as Riverbed continues its transformation to an end-to-end application performance platform provider.

He will have a particular focus on supporting the company’s growth and expansion in India, China and Japan.
