Verizon appoints Francis Yip to Lead Asia-Pacific business #cloudasia

Francis-YipVerizon Enterprise Solutions, the cloud computing and enterprise IT-focused division of American operator Verizon has appointed Francis Yip to group vice president of Verizon Asia Pacific, where he will lead all of the business’ strategic initiatives.

He will be responsible for delivering strategic cloud, security, mobility, network and connected machines solutions to Verizon’s multinational enterprise clients across the region

bcnYip most recently served as Verizon’s managing director for North Asia with responsibility for Verizon’s business in Hong Kong, China, Korea and Taiwan, but the promotion will see Yip lead the business across the broader Asia Pacific region including southern Asia.

He will replace Andrew Dobbins, who announced his retirement earlier this month.

Before joining Verizon Yip was responsible for managing Dimension Data’s North Asia operations, and has also held senior management positions including general manager for China at Equant, which was acquired by Orange Business Systems in 2005.

“Francis is an exceptional talent, and we believe he has the experience and expertise to continue to grow our business in Asia-Pacific,” said Christopher Formant, president of Verizon Enterprise Solutions.

“His leadership in North Asia in the past two years has earned him a first-class reputation for commercial acumen. His in-depth understanding of technology businesses in Asia, particularly in emerging markets, will be instrumental in helping our customers move their businesses forward,” he added.
