To that endeavor we have been talking to Ram for a while and it is indeed great pleasure that he has accepted to lead the region for us given his vast experience in the space and the network he has, which is exactly what C1X requires at this stage of growth. I am excited to partner with Ram and look forward in taking product capability across the APMEA market, which now is in safe hands.”
