Synology has announced that it’s shuffling around the upstairs management, with the news that a new managing director for the UK, Ireland and Nordic region has been appointed: Mr Yi-Lin Huang. He replaces previous MD Mike Chen, who has held the position for the past three years.
Yi-Lin has been promoted from within the company, having worked for Synology in Taiwan for the past decade. For most of that time he’s been a senior manager of the Product Department, but he’s also previously worked as a technical support manager and as a product developer, so knows the business inside out.
Having worked hands on with Synology’s hardware and its DiskStation Manager software back-end, he’s well versed in the company’s products and Synology hopes that he will utilise this understanding to help better push its products to a global audience.
“We have had good sales and marketing momentum in the UK, Ireland and Nordic countries for the past 3 years,” said Yi-Lin Huang of his appointment and Synology’s current market placement. “We will continue to expand the business channels and provide our customers and partners with the best support possible.”
