Transmode has appointed Mark Stevens as its VP for the Asia-Pacific region. Stevens will be responsible for the company's activities in the region and will be based in Singapore, which has been his home for several years.
The appointment comes at a time of rapid growth in the APAC region for Transmode, which includes the company's recent significant win of Hutchison Global Communications as a major customer in Hong Kong. He will be responsible for sales management and other regional functions such as APAC customer support. Mr. Stevens will join the company's management team and will report directly to CEO Karl Thedéen.
Thedéen commented: 'I am delighted to be welcoming Mark to our team at such an exciting and pivotal point in the company's growth in the APAC region. He brings 20 years' experience in the telecommunications industry in the APAC region and has the senior management vision that will help lead our regional team.'
Stevens, an Australian by birth, has held senior management positions in Asia for companies including Nortel Networks and most recently at ECI Telecom. He holds an MBA from the University of Melbourne and an BEng in electrical engineering from Monash University.
He said: 'I am thrilled to be joining the team at Transmode. I am looking forward to taking on the challenge of driving continued growth for the company. Transmode has a solid core of business in the APAC region, built on the hard work of a well-motivated team. I look forward to leading this team to new heights in a region already regarded as an engine of growth.'
