Aryaka, an SD-WAN and unified secure access software edge (SASE) solutions provider, has announced the appointment of Jon Selway as its new president of channel sales for EMEA.
Selway brings 15 years’ experience working in the channel and will lead the company’s Accelerate Global Partner Programme across the region, reporting to chief commercial officer Dennis Monner.
The seasoned channel pro joins the business following a ten year stint at Lumen Technologies, including its precursors CenturyLink and Level 3 Communications.
In his most recent role as sales director for Lumen’s wholesale business in the UK and Ireland, he was responsible for creating and implementing a consistent partner sales strategy. Prior to that, he was a wholesale sales manager for Lumen Wholesale, working with carriers, system integrators, data centres, resellers, and agents in the region.
“Jon Selway brings a long track record of success working with strategic partners across the UK and Ireland to his role with Aryaka,” said Dennis Monner, chief commercial officer at Aryaka. “He is a proven channel sales leader and an ideal choice to advance the new Aryaka Accelerate Global Partner Programme in EMEA.”
Headquartered in San Mateo, California, the firm now has offices located in London, Bengaluru, Beijing, and Singapore, covering a customer base that consists of hundreds of enterprises around the world.
An end-to-end roadmap for SMB cloud migration
Back in January 2022, Aryaka unified its partner-led go-to-market strategy under the Aryaka Accelerate Global Partner Programme, a single initiative for its various types of channel partners.
Aryaka said the programme was designed to enable partners to leverage its new all-in-one SD-WAN and secure access edge (SASE) solutions to find expanded revenue opportunities.
As the new EMEA channel sales lead, Jon Selway is tasked with further advancing this partner-led growth strategy across the UK and Ireland.
“I’m excited to join the Aryaka global channel team and am eager to introduce the future of networking to the partners in EMEA,” Selway said. “Aryaka is truly changing the way businesses approach and achieve secure networking with its fully managed SD-WAN and unified SASE solutions.
“Aryaka enables partners to offer their business customers network flexibility, simplicity, security and reliability that’s second to none.”
