A10 Networks targets EMEA channel with new heads

Automated security vendor A10 Networks has expanded its EMEA team with the appointment of Adrian Taylor as VP of sales for Western Europe and Stephen Dallas as channel head for EMEA.  ‎

Taylor, an established sales leader with over 25 years of experience in developing global and multinational accounts across a wide range of emerging networking technologies, will be responsible for driving growth through direct customer engagements as well as leveraging channel, service provider and technology partnerships. 

His new colleague Dallas, who has 20 years of experience of working in the IT industry in the UK and EMEA, spanning service provider, enterprise and channels, will be responsible for growing revenues through A10’s EMEA partners and supporting customer go-to-market initiatives.

Both have held various previous channel roles at Cisco, and also at other companies.

Dallas said: "A10’s ability to capture major market transitions affecting customers such as digital transformation, moving to a cloud strategy, enhancing security and creating a more application-centric infrastructure was what made me want to join the company.

"There are exciting customer and partner developments on the horizon at A10 Networks and this will give me the opportunity to put into practice what I learnt during my 15 years at Cisco."

The hirings come on the back of the appointment of Anthony Webb as vice president of sales for EMEA earlier in the year, and also as A10 expands its offices in Thames Valley, UK, tripling its space in order to continue to build its EMEA team.
