BlackLine Continues Asia-Pacific Expansion

Accounting automation software leader BlackLine, Inc. (Nasdaq: BL) today announced it is expanding its presence in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region by opening a new office, appointing two new leaders, and launching a data center in Sydney.

New Regional Headquarters Opens in Sydney
BlackLine has moved its APAC regional headquarters into new office space on Castlereagh Street in Sydney’s central business district. The collaborative workspace enables the company to support market expansion and regional employee growth while better serving local customers and partners.

Two Experienced Leaders Join BlackLine APAC
Rosie Cairnes has been appointed as regional vice president of the account management organization. Ms. Cairnes has three decades of IT industry sales, business development and management experience working for organizations including SmartForce, SAI Global and SkillSoft. Based in Sydney, she will focus on driving customer adoption and growth.

Nikhil Parambath joins BlackLine as regional vice president for enterprise accounts. Mr. Parambath has over 25 years of experience in the IT industry, having previously worked for industry leaders Salesforce, SunGard and Oracle. From BlackLine’s Singapore office, he will drive market expansion across APAC.

New Data Center to Improve Speed, Security and Data Sovereignty
BlackLine will soon open a data center within a Google Cloud facility in Sydney. The data center is expected to enhance customer service delivery across the region while bolstering the company’s capacity to scale and support customer growth. It also will support customers’ data sovereignty requirements while increasing speed and offering best-of-breed information security.

BlackLine expects the new data center to simplify and accelerate the migration of its APAC customers to Google Cloud. The addition complements other data centers across the US and Europe, expanding the company’s global coverage to better serve the company’s growing customer base.

“We remain focused on delivering the best customer experience and fast-tracking time to value,” said Lee Thompson, BlackLine’s senior vice president for APAC. “With a local data center, new regional hub, outstanding local sales leadership, and partners skilled in finance and accounting automation, we offer our customers the trust and confidence they need as we expand to ensure their ongoing success.”

For the nearly 10 percent of BlackLine’s customers in APAC, BlackLine is hosting its annual BeyondTheBlack user conferences this week with events in Sydney and Melbourne and a Finance Transformation Series event to follow next week in Singapore.
