Apptio Names Mark West Regional Vice President For Australia And New Zealand

Australia & New Zealand – November 7, 2022 – Apptio Inc, the leading provider of technology business management (TBM) and cost optimisation solutions, has appointed Mark West to Regional Vice President for Australia and New Zealand.

West is charged with evolving Apptio’s go-to-market strategy as it continues expanding in the local market, with focus on helping organisations managing spiralling cloud costs and budget waste. This includes optimising existing and establishing new relationships with A/NZ’s largest banks, retailers, telecommunications providers, and federal and state government agencies, among others, alongside Apptio’s partner ecosystem.

“The number one thing A/NZ companies – and in particular CIOs – are worried about is growing cloud spend. Everyone’s struggling with budgets, and every dollar invested counts in the face of inflation and anticipated recession,” said West.

“Apptio has great people, great technology, and an impressive customer base in Australia and New Zealand. Joining the company gives me the opportunity to directly influence local organisations’ ability to overcome financial headaches with quantifiable results, and the ability to impact a broad range of stakeholders, including business, technology and finance leaders.”

West is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) specialist who joins Apptio with more than 20 years’ technology industry experience, of which the last 12 have been in senior leadership roles. He was most recently Regional Vice President A/NZ at UiPath, prior to which he held similar positions at AppDynamics, Concur, NetSuite and Aconex.
