Citrix appoints Darren Fields as VP, networking EMEA

Coming into the role having been working for Citrix since 2017, Fields started his new position at the start of the month.

Reporting to senior vice-president and managing director EMEA, Sherif Seddik, Fields will take charge of Citrix’s networking business across the EMEA region.

“Over the past three years, a key part of my role has been to help accelerate the Citrix growth strategy through increased cloud adoption – driving improved customer experience and a loyal partner ecosystem,” Fields commented.

“I look forward to focusing more on our core networking business as the backbone of the continued transition to the cloud of businesses across EMEA.”

In his previous role as regional vice-president UK&I, Fields oversaw an increase in sales within the region before Citrix transformed into a subscription-based business.
