Enterprise automation software provider UiPath has announced a revamp of its global sales leadership team, with former SAP executive Mark Gibbs taking the role of senior vice president and managing director of EMEA.

The reshuffle also sees UiPath veteran Ryan Mac Ban promoted to senior vice president of sales for the Americas.

The appointments form part of UiPath’s plan to increase its market penetration across the EMEA region, as well as build on its position in the Americas, UiPath said in an announcement.

Gibbs joins the business from SAP, where he held several international roles and most recently served as president of SAP Greater China, covering Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.

Previously chief operating officer of SAP Asia Pacific Japan, Gibbs helped revitalise SAP’s presence in the market, registering double-digit revenue growth and building key relationships to further the company’s footprint.

“Mark’s decision to join UiPath is further evidence of our ability to attract world-class talent as we drive toward our objective of increasing market penetration in the region,” commented Chris Weber, UiPath chief business officer.

“UiPath has the industry’s most compelling vision for customers and I’m excited about the expertise Mark brings to enhance our operations in EMEA.”

In the Americas, new sales chief Ryan Mac Ban steps up to the role having previously served as UiPath’s senior vice president for worldwide growth sales, where he oversaw significant growth year-over-year.

Before his tenure at UiPath, Mac Ban held several sales leadership roles at VMware, most recently as Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Networking, Security, and Automation. Prior to that, he served in sales leadership roles at networking giant Cisco.

“Ryan has an impressive history of scaling large enterprise software companies, and his sales approach aligns perfectly with our values,” Weber added in UiPath’s announcement.

“As we make our vision of the fully automated enterprise a reality, scaling customers successfully is our number one goal. Ryan’s experience and passion for customers will be a great combination toward extending our leadership position throughout the Americas.”
