Continent 8 Technologies has strengthened its senior management team with the appointment of Brian B. Koh as chief commercial officer.

Koh brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role having held senior positions at global technology firms over a distinguished 20+ year career. He joins Continent 8 from Syntax, where he was executive vice president, and has also worked for the likes of IT Convergence and Core Services.

He has been involved in both executive roles and several corporate and non-profit boards across the US, Asia, and Latin America. He has also been instrumental in building several large multinational companies to successful exits.

Based in New York and reporting directly to the company’s CEO, Michael Tobin, Koh has been tasked with continuing to build on the company’s ambitious growth plans and its go-to-market expansion. This includes developing and implementing its commercial strategy, where he will have crucial input into sales, account management, marketing, and customer service.

Michael Tobin said: “We have a world-class team at Continent 8 and our headcount has grown significantly over the past few years to ensure we remain at the top of our game. Brian is a significant addition to our team and comes at an exciting time for the organisation.

“As more countries embrace regulation and new markets open for business, we see a huge opportunity for Continent 8 to expand its reach and deliver our award-winning managed hosting, connectivity, cloud and security solutions to customers entering these jurisdictions.

“Brian has been tasked with overseeing our expansion, a job that he is undoubtedly the best person to take on. I look forward to working with him closely moving forwards.”

Brian B. Koh added: “I am thrilled to join Continent 8 and its highly talented team as the business continues to grow and demand for its powerful suite of solutions increases.

“The opportunity to work with such a highly respected brand was one that I simply couldn’t turn down. Continent 8’s customer base and reputation in the industry is second to none, and I look forward to playing my part in the next chapter of Continent 8’s success story.”

Koh and the Continent 8 team will be at G2E Vegas at the Venetian Expo, 11-13 October, Booth #4410.
