Australia to Serve as Base for Growing Collibra Presence in Asia Pacific Region
Melbourne, August 22, 2018 – Collibra, the leader in enterprise data governance and catalog software, today announced the opening of a new office in Melbourne, Australia. In addition to serving its existing customer base in Australia, the Melbourne office will operate as the base for Collibra to expand the company’s overall presence in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.
“Over the past year, we’ve seen significantly growing interest in data governance and catalog solutions among brands in the APAC market, as more organizations look to leverage data for highest business impact while also improving data privacy,” said Philip Carty, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Field Operations for Collibra. “As we’ve established momentum in the region, the timing is right for Collibra to have a stronger presence on-the-ground to help our customers be successful and guide the continued maturity of the market. We’re looking forward to putting the experience and leadership we’ve earned in the US and EMEA markets over these past 10 years to work for APAC companies that want to better leverage trusted data to drive competitive advantage.”
Collibra selected Melbourne as the home of its first APAC office based on the Victoria region’s technology strength, which will enable Collibra to recruit top technology industry talent to join its growing office. Benedict Benoit, Regional Sales Manager, APAC, will tap his deep experience in the APAC market to lead the Collibra Melbourne office.
“Victoria is an attractive destination for global tech leaders, and we happily welcome Collibra, one of the world’s most trusted data governance companies, to Australia’s number one tech city, where they will help our businesses maximise their data assets and create local jobs,” said Philip Daidakis, Minister for Innovation and the Digital Economy.
