Verizon promotes Francis Yip to lead Asia-Pacific business

NEW DELHI: US telecom operator Verizon has made a change to its top management. Francis Yip has been promoted to group vice president of Verizon Asia Pacific. Most recently he was Verizon managing direct for north Asia, responsible for its business in Hong Kong, China, Korea and Taiwan.

 

Verizon Enterprise Solutions president Christopher Formant said that in his new role, Yip is responsible for delivering strategic cloud, security, mobility, network and connected machines solutions to Verizon’s multinational enterprise clients across the APAC region.

 

Formant said: “Francis is an exceptional talent, and we believe he has the experience and expertise to continue to grow our business in APAC. His leadership in north Asia in the past two years has earned him a first-class reputation for commercial acumen. His in-depth understanding of technology businesses in Asia, particularly in emerging markets, will be instrumental in helping our customers move their businesses forward.”

 

Prior to joining Verizon, Yip was responsible for managing Dimension Data’s north Asia operations. He has also held senior management positions at Equant (now Orange Business Systems) including general manager for China. A native of Singapore, Yip is fluent in several languages including English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean and Malay.

 

He replaces Andrew Dobbins, who announced his retirement earlier this month. Verizon Enterprise Solutions provides advanced IT and communications services to enterprise and governments around the world.
