Sourced Group has announced Mireille (Mimi) Giraud has joined the company as Managing Director, ASEAN, bringing with her more than 25 years of industry experience.
Prior to joining Sourced, Giraud was Regional Director APAC at Schneider Electric where she was responsible for building its Cloud & Service Provider segment in the region. Giraud replaces Ian McMaugh who has taken the opportunity to relocate internationally with Sourced and is now Managing Director for North America.
“We’re delighted to welcome Mimi to the Sourced team,” says Sourced CEO, Jon Spinks. “The increased demand from enterprises to accelerate their cloud journey means we are experiencing strong growth in the ASEAN region and Mimi’s appointment shows our commitment to the market.”
Giraud’s appointment supports Sourced’s continued commitment to growth in the ASEAN region as she aims to increase the number of local employees and focus growth initiatives around four pillars: existing customer development and satisfaction, new logos, new verticals, new practices and explore new markets.
“Upon joining, I’ve been impressed by the talented people at Sourced. My colleagues are not only smart and talented but also genuine, so it’s important we sustain the calibre of talent in our recruitment as we maintain our relentless focus on delivering an exceptional experience for our customers,” says Giraud.
“I am excited for the opportunity to grow the ASEAN business,” Giraud adds. “We have a portfolio of highly regulated and technically demanding customers who trust us with their cloud transformation because we have the best people in the business, specialising in AWS, GCP and Microsoft Azure. As a female leader in the tech industry, my focus will be on attracting and retaining the best talent, while improving the diversity we have across the business as we actively seek to hire new members of the team.”
