Parsippany, NJ, USA, March, 2017 -- Dialogic, a cloud-optimized applications and virtualized infrastructure solutions provider, announced the appointment of Shervin Bakhtiari to the position of Vice President Sales, APAC region. Reporting to Mike Ward, Executive Vice President of Global Field Operations, Shervin assumes responsibility for driving Dialogic’s continued success in delivering mission-critical real-time communications solutions in the Asia Pacific market.
"This is a great opportunity for Dialogic to bring someone of Shervin’s talent directly into the Company to run APAC sales for us." said Bill Crank, President and CEO of Dialogic. "His extensive background in software-based businesses fits perfectly with Dialogic’s emergence as a pure software company after the recent divesture of our hardware business. Plus, with new products expanding upon our already cutting edge portfolio, this couldn’t be a better time to bring him in as the leader of APAC."
"I am pleased to be joining Dialogic in this role after spending nine months with the company as a technical and sales consultant in Asia. The timing couldn’t be better, as Dialogic has just this quarter launched the DialogicONE™ and Dialogic(R) BUZZ™ platforms," said Shervin. "Dialogic already had a good footprint in Asia with existing products and customers, but there now exists even more upside for growth with the newly launched products, which are a great fit for this market."
"Shervin is a technical expert in the types of products Dialogic offers, has been an advisor for many companies, and has a history of successfully running the region," added Mike Ward. "I am pleased he has joined Dialogic to continue to grow the APAC business."
Shervin Bakhtiari is a telecom executive with proven success executing growth as the APAC Region lead for companies including Ubiquity Software, Avaya, and Emotive Communications. He was also a technical and financial advisor to a number of private equity, venture capital, and Investment firms in Asia.
