I'm thrilled to announce the addition of Sebastien Marotte as our new President for Box EMEA. Sebastien will join Box after more than 10 years at Google Cloud. He comes on board at an exciting time for Box as we continue to grow our international presence, and amplify the power of the Content Cloud.
Over a 30+ year career, Sebastien has held executive roles at some of the world's highest-profile software companies including Google, Hyperion, and Oracle. He most recently led Google Cloud's EMEA Channels as Vice President, having previously served as Vice President of Google Cloud EMEA for eight years. As an early leader at Google Cloud, Sebastien was responsible for much of the foundational growth and development across EMEA, including the launch of G Suite (now Google Workspace). He is well-known in the industry as a dynamic leader with exceptionally high standards and incredible integrity.
Sebastien has comprehensive knowledge of the EMEA business landscape, and extensive experience leading in multiple markets. A French native based in London - as lockdowns lift - he'll be spending time across our core European markets and building out our business.
Sebastien says, "the pandemic has accelerated the pace of change for just about every company on the planet, and the move to the cloud has never been more urgent. As more companies realize that their businesses run on content, the demand for a secure platform for managing all of that content in the cloud will continue to grow. I strongly believe that Box has the strategy and team in place to capture this amazing opportunity, and I'm incredibly excited to join the Box family at this important part of the journey."
Sebastien holds a Master's degree in Finance and Business from ESLSCA Business School Paris. He also serves as a board member at Temporall.
Sebastien joins Box on June 7th, and we couldn't be happier to welcome him at this exciting time.
