Emerson Network Power recently appointed a president who will take charge of the Asia Pacific market except the two Asian powers - India and China.
To be based in its regional headquarters in Manila, Philippines, India-educated Anand Sanghi will oversee the Emerson Network Power operations across Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Japan, South Korea and Pakistan. Sanghi will report to Stephen Liang, Emerson Network Power Asia Pacific president.
The company said appointing a top executive to assume responsibility over the region shows how big the market is despite global economic fluctuations. "It also reflects the company's confidence in its strategy in the region, as it continues to expand with new customers, partners and geographies," a company statement read.
"Asia is an exciting market with sophisticated and demanding customers, we have a terrific team and I am proud to be part of it," said Sanghi. "With the recent global acquisitions of Avocent and Chloride, we are best positioned to support communications and computing infrastructure needs with the most innovative and efficient products, solutions, services and true Data Centre Infrastructure Management. This provides a solid foundation for Emerson's industry leadership and continued growth in Asia."
Sanghi was promoted from his post as vice-president of operations for Emerson Network Power in Asia. He joined Emerson in 1994 as a business planner for Copeland, which is now part of Emerson Climate Technologies. From there, he has assumed other top-level posts in the region.
"Anand has been a key contributor in the success of Emerson and Emerson Network Power here in Asia," said Liang. "His skills at understanding customer needs, technology and cross-cultural management should give us the strong leadership required to lead a dynamic and diversified Asia organisation."
