Getronics announces new APAC CEO to lead business growth in the region
Getronics has announced Mukul Jain as the new CEO of Getronics APAC, following changes to its leadership team in the region. The news comes as the company aims to double in size after the IT services provider was acquired by Bottega InvestCo S.à r.l, in July 2017.
Mukul Jain has worked at Getronics for nine years, operating in a number of key commercial and management positions in the company, including Chief Operating Officer, Chief Sales Officer and Head of Professional Services Business Unit, where he has been pivotal in the renewal of key client contracts, as well as in revolutionising new channels for global and regional business.
Additionally, he will bring his strong regional knowledge and experience of the market, combined with his consulting, sales and operating background, to build on Getronics’ service quality and customer satisfaction in the APAC market. Mukul takes over from Frank Fellinger, who served as regional CEO for three years.
According to research from Forrester of the APAC market, while growth for technology budgets was only moderate in 2017, tech spending will accelerate next year to 5.7 per cent growth, representing huge opportunities for technology services in the market over the course of the next few months.
“We’re going through a very exciting period in the company’s history, as we seek to enhance our global presence following the acquisition,” said Mukul Jain, CEO of Getronics APAC. “APAC is a huge market and one which represents a massive opportunity for growth in technology. Getronics’ experience in providing dedicated end-to-end IT services and our understanding of the market complexities and nuances put us in a great position to respond to our customers’ needs.”
