Garces transfers from GEO VP role in LATAM to lead continued EMEA expansion
Teradata (NYSE: TDC) today announced that Jose Garces has been appointed as the GTM Vice President of North-South Europe, a region that includes the UK and Ireland, as well the majority of the Nordic countries, Portugal, Spain, and Italy. In his role, Garces will be responsible for leading go-to-market operations, building customer relations and enhancing customer experience across the region.
With over 26 years of experience at Teradata, Jose is transferring to EMEA from his prior GEO VP role in Central & Latin America (CLA). In this role, he has successfully managed Teradata’s sales and services organization across the region for 16 years. He has driven a positive transformation with a significant portion of customers migrating to the cloud and important business wins at major accounts, making CLA one of the faster-growing geographies within Teradata, and steadily building lasting customer and partner relationships.
“We’re really pleased to be announcing Jose’s appointment in Europe, and believe he will be an incredibly strong asset for the region,” said Richard Petley, Executive Vice President, GTM International at Teradata. “He has an invaluable wealth of institutional knowledge of the organization and our product from his experience at Teradata thus far, and the leadership, sales skills and strategy insight required to develop our market growth.”
“I’m delighted to be joining the International team as the region continues to go from strength to strength, and look forward to immersing myself in the local nuances and existing customer relationships, as well as helping to build and foster new ones,” said Garces. “My experience in the LATAM region has given me a vast understanding of how a multicultural territory works and operates, and I look forward to bringing this knowledge to a new market, supplementing the already high-performing team on the ground in Europe.”
Prior to Teradata, Garces was the Marketing Director for a leading bank and led the high-net-worth customer segment for over nine years.
