Riverbed revealed the promotions of two existing leaders to SVP, overseeing the two newly formed divisions of the company in its international markets. Elie Dib is promoted to SVP, Riverbed International for Riverbed’s Digital Networking business; and Conor Molloy to SVP, International for Riverbed’s Aternity division. Both executives will report to Andy Elder, Chief Sales Officer at Riverbed. In lieu of the expansion of Dib’s role to the wider international market, the company has promoted Mena Migally to Senior Director, responsible for leading its sales team in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Migally will continue to report to Elie Dib.
The promotion of Dib and Molloy follows the company’s continued commitment to drive innovation in its Digital Networking business, and the formation of its new Aternity division, focused on capitalising on the tremendous growth and innovation opportunities in Digital Experience Management (DEM). Riverbed’s Digital Networking business, which continues to gain market momentum due to significant advancements in the product portfolio, will continue to focus on innovation and best-in-class services in the company’s SD-WAN portfolio, application acceleration for new consumption models (SaaS, Cloud and Mobile), and Network Performance Management (NPM).
Commenting on the new leadership, Andy Elder, Riverbed’s Chief Sales Officer, said: “Riverbed has two strong and distinct market opportunities – our foundational and leading Digital Networking solutions and our high-growth Digital Experience Management (DEM) software business. As a result, I’m delighted to announce three well-deserved promotions that strengthen the focus of Riverbed’s leadership team in our international markets, as well as in the Middle East and North Africa which remains a high growth region for our company. Given that each of these individuals has a proven track record, I’m confident in their continued success to deliver business performance, drive deeper engagements with our customers and generate new business opportunities for Riverbed.”
Dib, Molloy and Migally will lead their respective sales teams to offer best-in-class solutions, delivering greater focus and deeper expertise in Riverbed’s core offerings, enabling the opportunity for more breakthrough innovations for customers while increasing growth and profitability for the business. Dib has held several roles at Riverbed, including the positions of Managing Director for Middle East, Turkey and North Africa (METNA) and more recently as Regional Vice President for EMEA Emerging Markets. Molloy’s tenure at Riverbed has spanned over six years, initially as UK Sales Director and more recently as Northern Europe Sales Director. Similarly, Migally has also grown rapidly within the organization, having most recently served as Regional Director – Channel, Territory and Telco for Middle East, Turkey and North Africa.
Elie Dib, Riverbed’s newly appointed SVP, Riverbed International, commented, ”With evolved and exciting new use cases for application acceleration (for SaaS, Cloud and Mobile), our leadership position in the Gartner NPM MQ, and our recent SD-WAN partnership with Versa Networks to deliver enterprise-grade SD-WAN, there is a massive opportunity to grow this business and lead in the international markets. This is an exciting time in Riverbed’s growth journey, and I look forward to cementing our position as market leaders.”
Mena Migally who now assumes the position of Senior Director, MENA, at Riverbed said, “Regional organizations of all sizes and areas of business are looking to digital innovations to secure their customer base, gain a competitive advantage and create new revenue streams. As human digital experiences are at the epicentre of these ambitions, Riverbed is ideally positioned to be a key technology partner to MENA enterprises. The relevance and scope of our digital networking portfolio is enabling us to penetrate new customer accounts and market verticals while simultaneously extending ties with our existing customers by building upon our strong install base. I am privileged to lead the regional organization at this exciting phase in our journey.”
