Joe Lee has been appointed as vice president of Asia Pacific sales. His appointment is the latest example of Forter's investment and growth in the region.
Lee brings to Forter more than 20 years of global sales experience in enterprise software. His passion for building, coaching, and supporting high-performance sales teams across multiple cultures has helped companies achieve record revenues and navigate successful IPOs.
Prior to Forter, Lee held management roles at Cisco and Cloudera ASEAN/India, where he helped expand regional revenue from zero to $25 million. Lee will draw on his expertise to expand Forter's footprint across APAC and to deepen and establish new local customer relationships.
"I am thrilled to join Forter and to be a part of a new chapter in digital commerce enablement," Lee says.
"Global retail leaders understand the power of Forter to provide accurate, instant decisions that distinguish between risky and quality customers. This allows these businesses to not only protect against financial losses but improve the consumer experience and strengthen loyalty in the process. I look forward to helping digital commerce retailers in APAC discover and apply this advantage," Lee adds.
"Joe brings to Forter an established reputation for leading complex digital transformations across multiple industries and cultures in a region where we continue to invest heavily," Forter CEO and co-founder Michael Reitblat says.
"His experiences and successes, particularly within FinTech and retail environments in APAC, will help open the door to new opportunities and form new customer relationships in this region."
