New Relic has appointed Kris Day as Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) to drive expansion in the region and lead the business into its next stage of growth.
Day has over two decades of sales and leadership experience in the technology industry across Europe and the Asia Pacific region, covering hardware, software, cloud and transformation specialty sales, and partner sales environments. Most recently, Day was Sales Vice President for Asia Pacific and Japan at Dell EMC, where he led multiple teams to navigate complex customer cloud and digital transformation journeys. He has also held senior roles at NetApp and Hewlett-Packard.
In his new role, Day will be responsible for leading New Relic’s high-performing sales teams to grow its footprint in the region, while delivering go-to-market strategies and enhancing the partner ecosystem.
“Kris joins New Relic at a time when we are witnessing organisations exploring a much broader, full lifecycle observability strategy. They are also navigating the increased complexity of multi-cloud environments and the modernisation of application architectures,” said New Relic Chief Revenue Officer, Mark Dodds.
New Relic’s observability platform enables organisations to achieve greater scale and efficiency, improve uptime and performance, and accelerate time to market to deliver excellent customer experiences. Day’s appointment comes off the back of a rapid period of expansion and success for the business, including the opening of two offices in India, and recognition as a certified Great Place to Work® in Singapore and Australia.
“I believe New Relic is uniquely positioned to capitalise on emerging market trends given its all-in-one observability approach, which overcomes data disparity and other modern IT complexities by enabling developers and engineers to visualise, analyse and troubleshoot an entire software stack in a single, connected platform,” said New Relic Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific and Japan, Kris Day.
Day’s appointment follows the announcement of recent product innovations for the company including CodeStream code-level metrics and service-level telemetry and out-of-the-box GPT-4 monitoring.
