Ixia, the network testing, visibility and security vendor, has appointed Anthony Webb as vice president of sales for EMEA, reporting to Patti Key, senior VP of global sales for Ixia.
Webb will be responsible for all sales-related business operations across the region. He joins Ixia from Juniper Networks, where he held a series of sales leadership roles, including VP of EMEA enterprise commercial sales and VP of EMEA channels/enterprise.
“Anthony’s wealth of experience and industry knowledge will play a vital role in strengthening Ixia’s leadership position throughout EMEA,” stated Patti Key, senior VP of global sales for Ixia. “The growing need by our customers for solutions that make their networks stronger led us to look for a professional who fits in with our spirit of innovation and exceptional service. We are fortunate to find someone of Anthony’s caliber to fulfil this role.”
Prior to Juniper, Webb spent over a decade at Cisco Systems running service provider and enterprise verticals in the UK before taking an overseas assignment as enterprise sales director for emerging markets.
“Ixia’s growth strategy for the region is focused on placing our customers first,” said Webb. “Our goal is to strengthen our customers’ entire experience, from what they buy to what they build to what they deliver. To accomplish this goal, we will be operationally agile so we can respond quickly to their changing requirements.”
