LONDON 11 September, 2019 – Riverbed®, The Digital Performance Company™, today announced the promotions of two existing leaders to SVP, overseeing the two newly formed divisions of the company in its international markets. Elie Dib is promoted to SVP, Riverbed International for Riverbed’s Digital Networking business; and Conor Molloy to SVP, International for Riverbed’s Aternity division. Both executives will report to Andy Elder, Chief Sales Officer at Riverbed.

The promotion of Dib and Molloy follows the formation of a new Aternity division, and the company’s continued commitment to drive innovation and greater focus for its Digital Networking business. The Aternity sales division will focus on capitalising on the tremendous growth and innovation opportunities in Digital Experience Management (DEM), which includes Riverbed’s End-User Experience Monitoring (EUEM) and Application Performance Management (APM) solutions. Riverbed’s Digital Networking business, which continues to gain market momentum due to significant advancements in the product portfolio, will continue to focus on innovation and best-in-class services in the company’s SD-WAN portfolio, application acceleration for new consumption models (SaaS, Cloud and Mobile), and Network Performance Management (NPM).

Commenting on the new leadership, Andy Elder, Riverbed’s Chief Sales Officer, said: “Riverbed has two strong and distinct market opportunities – our foundational and leading Digital Networking solutions and our high-growth Digital Experience Management (DEM) software business. As a result, I’m delighted to announce well-deserved promotions that strengthen the focus of Riverbed’s leadership team in our international markets. The promotions recognise two talented individuals, Elie Dib and Conor Molloy, who through their tenure at Riverbed, have demonstrated exemplary leadership qualities, a significant sales track record, and deep expertise in their fields. I’m confident in their continued success to deliver business performance, drive deeper engagements with our customers and generate new business opportunities for Riverbed across our international markets.”

Dib and Molloy will lead their respective sales teams to offer best-in-class solutions, delivering greater focus and deeper expertise in Riverbed’s core offerings, enabling the opportunity for more breakthrough innovations for customers while increasing growth and profitability for the business. Dib has held several roles at Riverbed, including the positions of Managing Director for Middle East, Turkey and North Africa (METNA) and more recently as Regional Vice President for EMEA Emerging Markets. Molloy’s tenure at Riverbed has spanned over six years, initially as UK Sales Director and more recently as Northern Europe Sales Director.

Elie Dib, Riverbed’s newly appointed SVP, Riverbed International, comments, ”With evolved and exciting new use cases for application acceleration (for SaaS, Cloud and Mobile), our leadership position in the Gartner NPM MQ, and our recent SD-WAN partnership with Versa Networks to deliver enterprise-grade SD-WAN, there is a massive opportunity to grow this business and lead in the international markets. This is an exciting time in Riverbed’s growth journey, and I look forward to cementing our position as market leaders.”

Conor Molloy, SVP Riverbed International, Aternity, at Riverbed, adds, “I’m excited and privileged to be leading one of two very strong and unique market opportunities around our End-User Experience Management (EUEM) and Application Performance Monitoring solutions. With a start-up mindset, the Aternity division will bring a new level of innovation and agility to the industry that will benefit our customers. We believe organisations that are investing in EUEM are quickly recognising how vital visibility is within their ever-increasingly complex IT environments. This is why our Aternity division is perfectly positioned to help businesses measure the digital experience of users, and to ensure their digital initiatives are successful. This new division will enable us to further accelerate this growth and market momentum.”
