SAI Global appoints head of commercial division

RELATED TOPICS​

SAI Global has appointed technology, governance, risk and compliance (GRC) specialist Rob Van Straten to head the company’s commercial division. 

 
Leveraging his network and industry knowledge, Van Straten (pictured) will be initially responsible for the company’s risk products and service business in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
 
Primarily tasked with expanding the company’s presence throughout EMEA, Van Straten has extensive experience growing GRC businesses and joins SAI Global from NASDAQ BWise where he was the global head of sales & professional services. 
 
Originally from the Netherlands and fluent in three languages, Van Straten has worked extensively across the globe, both at private and public companies, predominantly in complex sales environments. He is recognised as a GRC thought leader, valued public speaker and content publisher in the field. His experience as a founding owner of QSight IT, a storage, IT security and networking solutions provider, has helped him develop an understanding of operational demands and risk management requirements across the entire organisational structure. 
 
“To achieve SAI Global’s growth targets within the EMEA technology, risk and compliance market, we need the best talent, and I believe Rob offers this and more. His fresh thinking, extensive experience and deep understanding of the international technology and GRC landscape will help lead SAI Global to realise its potential in this market,” says Paul Butcher, SAI Global’s chief commercial officer.
 
“SAI Global’s powerful GRC software and online learning product suite is well-positioned to quickly expand their current EMEA market share as companies strive to strengthen their risk culture,” says Van Straten. “The new General Data Protection Regulation in May 2018 is likely to drive immediate interest in SAI Global’s IT Risk Manager which offers an excellent platform from which to manage IT risk.”
