Visier Signals Continued Expansion of its APAC Presence with Key Executive Hires
Vancouver, BC |
Visier, the globally recognized leader in people analytics and workforce solutions for people-powered business, is doubling down on APAC by adding two key industry leaders to the company’s executive team. Effective immediately, Boon Huat Lee has joined the company as Chief Growth Officer, APAC and Wai Leng Fok, as VP of Business Development & Partners. Based in the company’s Singapore office, Boon Huat will help expand Visier’s market presence and scale customer growth in the burgeoning region while Wai Leng will be responsible for Visier's Partners’ ecosystem.
“Boon Huat and Wai Leng are both transformational, results driven leaders known for infusing enthusiasm and energy into the teams they lead,” said Ryan Wong, co-founder and CEO, Visier. “Attracting the caliber of growth leaders we have found in both Boon Huat and Wai Leng is a testament to the strength of our product for organizations across Asia-Pacific, and to our commitment to further expansion in the region.”
Terrence Yong will continue to lead the regional sales team in APAC, who in their short time together is seeing strong momentum with a number of key accounts secured, and an expanding pipeline that will drive increased market penetration in FY25 and beyond in the region.
An EY study recently identified APAC as the top destination for expansion, with CEOs looking to strike a fine balance between maintaining a motivated, high-performing workforce and protecting their bottom line. Another study by Infosys credited Generative AI as a key driver of growth in APAC for 2024, estimating $3.4 billion USD of investment across Australia, New Zealand, China, Japan, India and Singapore,
“At Visier, we recently launched our Generative-AI based product Vee to unlock valuable and actionable workforce insights for people leaders,” added Wong. “The receptivity of APAC leaders to invest in AI technology positions us well to provide them with the innovation and products they need to strike the fine balance they are facing.”
