WFS Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific and Japan, Nick Bailey, commented on the appointments, “Forecasting large year-on-year growth led us to look for candidates who match our culture of innovation as well as collaboration with partners and customers. We are fortunate to have found people of both Chris and Mark’s calibre and look forward to working with them.” 

Mr Ewan started with WFS in January. He previously served in Singapore as the APJ lead of the SAP SuccessFactors Solution Advisory Team.
