Industry veteran embarks on a new phase, heading up Palo Alto Networks ASEAN business
SINGAPORE – July 4, 2022 — Palo Alto Networks (NASDAQ: PANW), the global cybersecurity leader, today announced the appointment of Steven Scheurmann to the role of regional vice president (RVP) for ASEAN. Scheurmann will oversee Palo Alto Networks business in the region – from driving revenue growth and market momentum, to building the overall strategy.
Scheurmann has lived and worked in the Asia-Pacific region for close to 30 years. Throughout his career, Scheurmann has assisted both the public and private sectors with their investments in technology, digital transformation, and cloud adoption. He began his career at the Department of Immigration and Border Protection at the Australian Embassy in Jakarta, supporting the introduction of one of the world's first electronic visa systems. He went on to serve in senior positions with several multinational companies and large Asian conglomerates across the region, including major software and security vendors.
Scheurmann is a recognized expert on topics such as the digital economy, cybersecurity, AI, and cloud technology. He has taught at the National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School and regularly speaks at industry events. With the rapid development and adoption of technology in the region, his passion for teaching and mentoring students aligns with Palo Alto Networks’ mission to nurture future leaders and secure our digital way of life.
Simon Green, president of JAPAC, Palo Alto Networks, said, “Steven joins us at a time of great momentum and change. Rapid digitalization in ASEAN is reshaping the region, bringing with it new and evolving cyber threats every day. We are glad to have him on board, and are certain that Palo Alto Networks will benefit greatly from his wide experience.”
“I am excited to be joining one of the largest names in cybersecurity and working alongside the talented Palo Alto Networks regional team to propel our ASEAN business forward and create greater value for our customers, partners and employees. This is an exciting time as we are seeing an increase in the need to secure nations, enterprises and the community against increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks,” said Scheurmann.
