Nextgen Group is gearing up for expansion plans in ASEAN with leadership appointment in the Philippines.
Effective immediately, the distributor has appointed Jenny Diamzon as managing director of Cyber and Data Resiliency in the Philippines and to drive ambition agendas across the region.
Diamzon served a 10-year stint as country manager of Westcon Solutions in the Philippines. Diamzon remarked that she is “delighted” to be handed the mandate of driving Nextgen’s continued expansion in the Philippines. “The Nextgen business model is compelling with its fresh, unique, and innovative approach to distribution and services. I look forward to lead under a company that drives a positive culture focused on diversity, trust, courage, and empowerment. Most importantly, I trust Nextgen places the customer at the centre of everything it does, delivering an exceptional partnering experience.”
Since entering ASEAN in January 2021 and setting up base in Singapore, Nextgen has expanded its footprint into three additional countries – Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines. The distributor has also on-boarded 12 new vendors, 65 additional partners and is developing an “aggressive investment plan” to hire more staff this coming fiscal year.
Wendy O’Keeffe, executive vice president and managing director for Asia at Nextgen Group, welcomed Diamzon, commending her for their deep regional relationships and understanding of distribution and channel services in the country.
“In looking for leaders to continue our growth and expansion into these markets, Jenny is a great fit with our business objectives and culture,” she noted. “She will bring a dynamic mix of youthful energy and deep experience to our team, having worked in technology markets for over 20 years apiece. I have deep respect for her leadership skills, reputation and relationships, amply evidenced by the success they have achieved in the Philippines. Jenny is an ideal leader we need to help propagate Nextgen’s innovative channel business and services model across the region.”
