Netskope promotes new worldwide sales lead

Netskope, experts in secure access service edge (SASE), has announced the promotion of Raphaël Bousquet to Executive Vice President, Worldwide Sales, leading all aspects of the company’s global sales and channel strategy.

Raphaël succeeds Chris Andrews, who will retire from Netskope this year as part of a planned leadership transition.

A networking and security industry veteran and sales leader, Raphaël has led top-performing technology sales teams at companies for decades. As worldwide head of Netskope’s global sales organisation, he will continue to drive customer demand for Netskope’s SASE and zero trust solutions to enable secure cloud transformations.

Dave Peranich, President, Go-to-Market, Netskope said, “Raphaël’s deep industry experience, passion for winning, and the extensive accomplishments he’s already achieved at Netskope make him the unanimous choice of the company’s executive team and board of directors to take the sales leadership reins and drive this next era of our growth. As we make a graceful sales leadership transition, the entire Netskope team salutes Chris Andrews for everything he has helped us achieve over the past decade – including scaling to the several-hundred-million-dollar market leader we are today.”

Raphaël joined Netskope in 2021 as Senior Vice President, EMEA & LATAM. Before joining Netskope, Raphaël served as Vice President, EMEA South, Israel & Alps at Palo Alto Networks, growing territory revenue by more than 600 per cent in five years. Before that, he held various international management roles at Cisco.

Sanjay Beri, CEO, and Co-Founder, Netskope added, “Chris’ achievements go hand-in-hand with Netskope’s biggest milestones, and we thank him for his leadership and determination over a long, impressive run that spans nearly the entire history of Netskope sales to date. He helped lay the foundation for our continued success and will always be part of Netskope’s legacy. We wish him the very best in retirement, and well-earned time to focus on family and personal pursuits. Here’s to you, Chris.”

Chris Andrews joined Netskope in 2014 after many years in executive sales, professional services, and support positions at Infoblox, Fortinet, Juniper, Netscreen, and other organisations.
