New Appointments Reflect Increased Demand for Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
Blue Prism (AIM: PRSM), provider of the world’s most successful Digital Workforce, has strengthened its senior management team in APAC, announcing the appointment of Rob Mills, VP ANZ and the promotion of Mike Cawsey to the newly created position of SVP & General Manager Asia Pacific. The appointments reflect the exponential growth in demand for Blue Prism’s Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform across the region.
Since launching its first Australian office in Sydney in April 2017, Blue Prism’s RPA platform has been adopted by many of the largest brands in Australia and New Zealand, including major financial institutions, telcos and federal government. It is also rapidly expanding its footprint across the wider APAC region. In August this year, Blue Prism opened its APAC headquarters in Singapore and a Hong Kong office to support its growing list of Asian Fortune 500 clients that includes Great Eastern Life, Maybank and Schroders.
“Blue Prism has fast become the choice for Intelligent Automation and operational transformation in Australia and New Zealand and Rob is well placed to steer our ANZ operation to the next level,” said SVP & General Manager Asia Pacific Mike Cawsey. “He will be responsible for extending our leadership position in Australia and New Zealand, educating the market about next generation Intelligent Automation and developing our growing ANZ team.”
Mills joins Blue Prism with over 25 years’ software sales and operational experience, most recently as Head of Sales at data software company IXUP Limited. Previously he was Global Vice President, Connect Solutions at Objective Corporation, a leading provider of information and process governance software solutions. Mills has also held senior roles with companies such as Information Builders and Novell.
Commenting on his appointment Rob Mills, VP ANZ said, “It’s an excellent time to be joining Blue Prism as our market is reaching an inflection point in the adoption of RPA technology as Australian companies realise the value that our digital workforce creates. I’m looking forward to working with our partners and clients to drive innovation and exceptional results as we move further into the world of Intelligent Automation where AI will drive even more advanced digital workforce capabilities.”
