Amir Assar has over 27 years of experience in technology sales and leadership and is presently AVP Sales at Workday, Inc. (NASDAQ:WDAY), one of the leading software company in the world. Prior to joining Workday, Amir was one of the key executives at Adaptive Insights, where he was instrumental in establishing Adaptive as a leader in the financial data analytics market, culminating in an IPO filing in June of 2018 and eventual acquisition by Workday for US$1.55 Billion in August 2018.
Amir Assar started his technology career in 1993 at Actel Corporation as the Western USA Director of Sales.

He is married and lives with his wife in San Francisco, California.

I feel privileged to have the opportunity to join GlobeX Data’s Board of Directors, and work closely with its CEO, Alain Ghiai, whom I admire as a successful entrepreneur and a thought leader in cyber security, to provide advice and guidance to continue GlobeX Data’s rapid growth.

Amir brings a wealth of knowledge to the Company, having spent over 27 years of his career in Silicon Valley and having worked in various sizes of companies from startups to IBM. We are all looking forward to learn from his experience and have him help us grow GlobeX Data with the wisdom he acquired in his continuing distinguished career in technology.”
