Rob Dooley has been appointed as Asia Pacific and Japan Vice President to spearhead the company's continued expansion in the region.
"APJ presents a significant growth opportunity for Rapid7, where we continue to invest in our people, the channel, and new product development to deliver sustainable customer outcomes," says Andre Cuenin, Chief Revenue Officer, Rapid7.
"With more than 25 years' experience in technology and security, and having held sales and business leadership roles with tier one consultancies, vendors, and systems integrators, Rob has a proven track record in scaling high-performing teams and will be instrumental in enhancing Rapid7's position and presence in the APJ region," Cuenin adds.
"As evidenced by the highly publicised cyber security incidents to recently strike several Australian organisations, it's clear that threat actors are more active than ever and applying even greater pressure on cyber defences," Dooley says.
"It's a challenging time for everyone associated with the cyber security sector, and I am looking forward to helping our customers navigate the complexities and strategically implement best-in-class solutions to stay ahead of attackers."
Dooley joins Rapid7 from VMWare, where he led the Security Business Unit across APJ, and was a member of VMWare's APJ Executive Leadership team. Prior to VMWare, he was the Australian Country Manager for Carbon Black, having joined from Accenture where he held a leadership role with the Consultancy team.
Dooley is a member of the Australian Security Information Association, the Australian Institute of Company Directors, and an active cyber industry participant, regularly championing change with government and regulatory bodies.
