Splunk has appointed former Juniper Networks executive Pauline Tng as its APAC head of partners.

Tng spent four years as Juniper’s APAC partners organisation senior director for distribution, commercial and inside sales.

Her new role sees her responsible for leading Splunk’s Asia Pacific channel organisation, focusing on building revenue-generating, partner-lead business across all partner types in the region.

Cheryln Chin, Splunk global partners vice president, says Tng has a strong background in channel strategy, partner and distribution management, as well as channel operations.

“Under Pauline’s leadership, Splunk is well positioned to accelerate its partner-first strategy across the region, Chin says.

Prior to her stint with Juniper, Tng was with Motorola Solutions, where she was director of distribution before becoming director of sales, wireless business and solution and partner alliances.

She also spent 10 years with Hewlett-Packard, including heading up the company’s solution partners organistation for South East Asia and time as commercial channel manager, and was an executive director for Lenovo Asia Pacific.
