“I am delighted with the opportunity to join the world-class team at Metalogix, and proud to help lead the charge in expanding its footprint into this highly lucrative geography,” said Taylor. “APAC continues to be one of the world’s fastest growing markets – one that actively pursues technology innovation as a means by which to create and maintain a competitive edge. For APAC-based organizations seeking the ideal solution for managing and protecting their Microsoft SharePoint, Office 365, OneDrive for Business, Exchange and other on-premises and cloud-based content, they will have direct access to the unparalleled solutions offered from Metalogix.”
