Corning Inc. has appointed Singapore-based Dennis Kom to the role of director, Sales and Global Strategic Accounts, for Enterprise Networks across the Asia-Pacific (excluding greater China), effective immediately.
Corning is one of the world’s innovators in materials science, with more than 165-year track record of life-changing inventions. Most smartphone manufacturers use Corning glass in their products.
In his new role, Kom oversees Corning’s Enterprise Networks business in Asia-Pacific and is responsible for the growth strategy in Australia, Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia.
Kom develops and executes data center strategies across the Asia-Pacific, and assists enterprise, multi-tenant, hyperscale and cloud data center customers with optimizing their physical layer assets. Kom also manages specialist teams supporting various verticals including industrial, government, IT tech, and financial service providers, and enterprise, and data centers across the region.
Kom, a subject matter expert on data center infrastructure, has more than 20 years of experience in telecommunications infrastructure, specializing in enterprise networking, digital video technologies, and low voltage power protection systems.
“As the region becomes increasingly digitized and connected, Corning brings global expertise in enabling next-generation data centers, with future-ready infrastructure that easily addresses the unrelenting demand for greater density and connectivity. I look forward to helping data center and enterprise network operators ensure their data centers are future-ready to support all network architectures and speeds to 400G. Scalability, low latency and lower total cost of ownership are vital to the longevity of a data center in the Asia-Pacific,” said Kom.
Kom will report directly to Stuart Hoiness, senior vice president, Enterprise Networks.
