Citrix names Darren Fields VP of networking in EMEA
Citrix has appointed Darren Fields as its new vice president of networking EMEA.
Fields entered the new role at the start of April 2020 and becoming responsible for the company’s networking business across the region.
He will now report to Sherif Seddik, senior vice president and managing director Citrix EMEA.
“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,” said Seddik.
“Darren has just the right mix of know-how and leadership approach to ensure Citrix continues to provide the best networking results and resource availability to our customers and partners.”
Fields joined Citrix in 2017, serving as the company’s regional vice president for United Kingdom & Ireland. In this role and under his leadership, the sales have grown significantly during the company’s transformation into a subscription-based business.
Prior to this, Fields 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.
“Over the past three years, a key part of my role has been to help accelerate Citrix growth strategy through increased cloud adoption – driving improved customer experience and a loyal partner ecosystem,” said Darren Fields, vice president of networking EMEA at Citrix.
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."
