Kirwan will report to Patrick Johnston, Savvius Vice President of Worldwide Sales, and help drive the company’s next phase of growth in the network performance monitoring and diagnostics (NPMD) space.
Johnston said that with the introduction of new products like Savvius Spotlight for real-time monitoring and Savvius Insight for remote office visibility, Savvius is actively expanding the company’s reach into new markets through channel partnerships in Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific.
“We’re supporting that growth with new regional offices in strategic locations like London, where we can directly cater to the needs of our current and future customers. Mark brings years of invaluable enterprise networking experience in the UK and Europe to Savvius. Having Mark lead our European sales ensures that customers throughout EMEA will receive comprehensive solutions and responsive customer support from Savvius. We are thrilled to welcome Mark to Savvius, and expect he will grow his team to match the opportunity.”
Kirwan said that he was thrilled to join an industry leader like Savvius and be a part of the high growth market for network visibility.
“As customers look for solutions to help them gain visibility into how their data is impacting performance, user experience and security, there is a clear market demand for the rich experience and product depth that Savvius brings to the industry.”
