Welcoming our Canadian Leader, Adam Drew
I'm thrilled to introduce Adam Drew as our country Vice President for Canada. We are continuing our fast growth trajectory and we have identified areas to expand our global footprint. We've appointed Adam to help us find and support Canadian enterprises as they look to become digital workplaces. He is a seasoned executive, and I’m delighted he has joined to help us maximize our opportunity in an exciting country for Box.
We already serve Canadian customers from an office in downtown Toronto, and through teams across the country. Based in Toronto, Adam will focus on building the Canadian business with an emphasis on large enterprise and government. He has more than two decades of experience in leadership roles across technology companies such as Salesforce, Oracle, and Computer Associates Inc. He has also worked in a variety of sectors including Finance, Retail, Defense, Federal, and Telecoms. Prior to joining Box, he held the role of Regional Vice President at Salesforce for two and a half years, where he ran Enterprise Sales in Central Canada.
On his appointment Adam says:
"Canadian enterprises across all sectors are looking for ways to become digital businesses, and cloud content management sits at the very heart of this transformation. Box’s robust enterprise-grade capabilities, combined with its new Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning offerings, make it an incredibly attractive solution for Canadian companies looking to become truly digital. I couldn’t be happier to join at this exciting time."
Since we entered Canada, we've added Box Zones, Box KeySafe, and multizone storage capability, as well as AI and ML technology through Box Skills, helping us to better serve Canada’s largest and most security-conscious enterprises. Adam's appointment follows continued international expansion for us. Today we have multiple offices outside of the US including in the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, Australia, and Japan.
I'm incredibly excited for what we can achieve in Canada and wish Adam a very warm welcome to Box. If you'd like to learn how Box can help transform your business - in Canada or beyond - drop us a line, we'd love to hear from you.
