SevOne has appointed Jeff Melvin and Shiva Pillay as Vice Presidents for Enterprise Sales for the Americas and Asia-Pacific regions, respectively.

Melvin and Pillay will report directly to Bill Conners, SVP of Worldwide Sales and Business Development.

In these roles, Melvin and Pillay will be responsible for managing SevOne’s sales teams in these two key regions while helping to continue the company’s exponential growth. Melvin will be leading the Americas Enterprise Sales team, accelerating growth and adding new customers to SevOne’s current list of world-class organizations, which includes Lockheed Martin and NASDAQ.

Pillay is responsible for building and expanding SevOne’s success in the Asia-Pacific region, expanding SevOne’s sales team and forging new partnerships with world-class master distributors and resellers.

“Jeff and Shiva’s extensive experience and understanding of the infrastructure technology industry make them the best fit for their new positions,” said Conners. “Our company has undergone rapid growth in recent years and their sales leadership will help sustain that momentum and deliver new opportunities for SevOne in both new and existing markets.”

Melvin is an industry veteran with more than two decades of sales management experience. Most recently, Melvin served as executive vice president for worldwide sales and service at Axeda. He brings with him a keen understanding of strategic planning and execution as well as experience leading globally distributed sales organizations. Prior to joining Axeda, Melvin held roles with Agiliance, Apparent Networks, Network Intelligence and Engage Systems. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Bates College in Lewiston, Maine.

“Service-centric enterprises today are dealing with tidal waves of data that are critical to ensuring ongoing operational success,” said Melvin. “SevOne is providing access to all of this data in real time for continuous service delivery insight. I am excited to be working with the sales team in the Americas to bring these capabilities to more customers and contribute to the continued success of SevOne.”

Pillay previously worked as Director for RSA, the Security Division of EMC, overseeing the company’s global services leadership team for the Asia-Pacific region. During his seven years with RSA, Pillay established a diverse bench of sales professionals and developed strategy for driving efficiency across all of RSA’s services to deliver better outcomes for customers. He was also responsible for spearheading improvements and innovation for the company’s customer satisfaction program, profitable operations, employee satisfaction and practitioner development. Prior to joining RSA, Pillay worked as a business development manager for ICT Security. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Wollongong in New South Wales, Australia.

“The reality is that the world’s most demanding service delivery environments are now moving to hyperscale-based infrastructures. But, they are stretching legacy monitoring tools to the breaking point and need a better solution,” said Pillay. “I’m thrilled to be a part of SevOne’s vision and leading the Asia-Pacific sales teams to help our customers see the value of SevOne’s approach to infrastructure monitoring with Speed at Scale.”
