Chayora Limited has announced the appointment of James McCartney (pictured) as Executive Vice President of Sales (APAC), based in Singapore, where Chayora is also opening a new regional office.

McCartney joins Chayora from Telstra, where he held a senior customer-focussed role leading a team of global specialists in developing cloud and data centre strategies and solutions for customers worldwide. 

The company said he brings 15 years of experience and understanding of the challenges faced by organisations, in today's technology sector, to his new role at Chayora.

McCartney’s mandate is to develop Chayora’s APAC customer base, including leading engagements with colocation strategic partners. 

Priorities will be focussing on APAC customer relationships and leading the engagement with Telstra as Chayora’s strategic partner for colocation.

Prior to Asia, McCartney worked with telecommunications operators and data centre solution providers in the United Kingdom, and around the world.

“Having James join our team is a recognition of Chayora’s continuing successful growth and enables us to expand particularly within the financial services and hyperscale cloud sectors and to develop meaningful long-term relationships with our customers operating out of Singapore,” said Oliver Jones, Co-Founder and CEO, Chayora. 

“We look forward to deploying James’ expertise across the APAC region.”

In order to support further growth in the APAC region, Chayora is opening a new office base, located in the Ocean Financial Centre, Singapore.

“I’m excited to be joining the dedicated Chayora team that Oliver and Jonathan have built-in China and around the world,” said MaCartney.

“This is a critical time when we’re seeing the greatest demand for digital infrastructure and mass adoption of cloud platforms, services, and solutions.

“Especially with regulatory changes that govern the financial services sector, I look forward to supporting our financial institutional customers to enable them to expand their business in greater China.”
