His previous experience includes IoT in APAC (Asset Management, People Management), innovating business models for promising technologies through Software as a Service (SaaS)/ Robot as a Service (RaaS) and service robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, and advertising sectors.
Tommy Lok has more than ten years of industry experience, spanning areas like managed service providers (MSPs), security, IT audit, and systems management products. With the expansion of his role which will be at a strategic level, Tommy will now provide technical counsel to the sales team and assist customers in achieving their goals in the governance and monitoring of digital transformation. He will oversee Paessler’s PRTG Solution Architecture Design, PRTG Global Technical Support, PRTG Product Training, and PreSales in the APAC region. Tommy also serves as a subject matter expert in various IoT, OT, and data-related topics, including digital transformation, cloud computing, IT security, business analytics, digital and cyber forensics, and big data.
“With the demand for specialized IT and IoT monitoring infrastructures in the region on the rise, Paessler continues to maintain an impressive growth trajectory. At such a juncture, we are delighted to welcome Jim and are confident that his compelling sales and business development skills will play an important role in growing our capability in the region. Moreover, the transition of Tommy’s role is a testament to the strong leadership he has displayed by helping our customers transform their IT operations into efficient, highly scalable, and fully integrated network and system performance data organizations. With Jim onboard and Tommy, I am confident that they will continue to power Paessler’s impact in APAC and their new roles will enhance our capabilities and create value for our clients,” said Helmut Binder, CEO, Paessler.
