Equinix appoints new EMEA channel head
New channel sales director to drive Equinix' business with enterprise customers
Global interconnection and data centre company Equinix has appointed a new EMEA head for its channel partner program.
Oren Yehudai will take on the role of senior channel sales director to drive the partner program in EMEA. The program allows partners to both resell and refer Equinix services, and is intended to help enterprise customers obtain the comprehensive IT services and expertise they need from the channel community they are accustomed to working with.
Yehudai joins from Palo Alto Networks where he led EMEA inside channel sales and was credited with driving significant growth for the cybersecurity firm through channel sales and partnerships. Prior to joining Palo Alto Networks, Yehudai held senior channel roles for several high-growth tech companies including NetApp and ClickSoftware.
Eugene Bergen Henegouwen, Senior Vice President, Sales, Equinix EMEA: “With over 13 years of experience in sales, business development, consulting and project management, Oren is well placed to lead our EMEA Channel Partner Program. Equinix has seen significant growth in the region within the past few years and we are delighted Oren has joined us to help build upon this success, driving channel sales and delivering new partnerships.”
Oren Yehudai, Senior Channel Sales Director, Equinix EMEA: “I am thrilled to be joining Equinix to further develop and grow the Channel Partner Program across EMEA. Building a successful channel business will increasingly be dependent on being part of the right ecosystems, with industry players needing to work with partners that can connect them with a broad range of vendors, service providers and cloud companies. My hope is that in a few years, Equinix is recognized by the partner community as the place to achieve this.”
