Citrix has announced the appointment of Darren Fields to the position of vice president, networking EMEA.
Previously regional vice president, United Kingdom & Ireland at Citrix, Fields started his new role at the beginning of April, 2020. With a company-wide vision for hybrid multi-cloud, alongside intelligent workspace, networking plays a key role for Citrix.
Reporting to Sherif Seddik, senior vice president and managing director Citrix EMEA, he becomes responsible for the company’s networking business across the region.
“Over the past three years, a key part of my role has been to help accelerate the Citrix growth strategy through increased cloud adoption – driving improved customer experience and a loyal partner ecosystem. I look forward to focusing more on our core networking business as the backbone of the continued transition to the cloud of businesses across EMEA,” said Fields.
Joining Citrix in 2017 to take care of the company’s business in the United Kingdom and Ireland, under Fields’ leadership, sales have grown significantly during the company’s transformation into a subscription-based business. Before joining Citrix, he was responsible for the Cloud and Security division at Vodafone in Northern Europe, and previously held a number of leadership roles at Telefonica, EMC, BMC, and Xerox.
“At this time of mass digitalisation, networking solutions are not only essential for reliable IT delivery and network performance optimisation, but are also crucial for delivering great employee experience. Darren has just the right mix of know-how and leadership in his approach to ensure Citrix continues to provide the best networking results and resource availability to our customers and partners,” said Sherif Seddik, senior vice president and managing director, Citrix EMEA.
