SINGAPORE & LONDON--()--Digital customer engagement technology specialist Sabio has appointed Harold Thng - previously Director of Dimension Data’s APAC Customer Experience Business Unit – as Managing Director of the company’s Asia Pacific operation, charged with driving Sabio’s next major phase of growth across the region.

“Sabio has a remarkable growth story and Avaya takes pride in being part of it, both today and in the future”

Under his leadership, the company expanded its operations across Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam, establishing itself as one of the region’s strongest Avaya Platinum partners.

“Geographical expansion is an important element in Sabio’s growth strategy, and we’re now looking to build on the strong progress Sabio has made in delivering transformational customer experience technology and managed service solutions to organisations across the APAC region,” commented Sabio’s Group CEO, Andy Roberts. “With a track record of success in building contact centre solutions market leadership businesses in both Singapore and Malaysia, Harold Thng clearly has an in-depth understanding of our target markets, and we look forward to building out our regional business.”

“Having developed what was widely recognised to be South East Asia’s leading contact centre systems integrator, I’m now delighted to be joining Sabio and tasked with replicating this success in the critical digital customer engagement space,” added Harold Thng. “Sabio has a particularly strong offering that combines distinctive digital transformation propositions with a proven global managed services capability, and I’m looking forward to working as part of the Sabio team.”
