AVAYA Holdings Corp. announced on February 13 the appointment of Ferdinand S. Macatangay as the firm’s Philippines country manager.
Macatangay, previously the head of IBM Corp.’s Cloud business in the country, is taking on the role at Avaya following the retirement of Edgar Doctolero, the first Avaya Philippines manager. Doctolero is considered by Avaya as instrumental in building the company’s presence in the Philippines, including in the business-process outsourcing, telecommunications service provider and hospitality sectors.
Macatangay will be responsible for promoting Avaya’s approach in the Philippines, “working closely with key customers to help them achieve their digital transformation objectives and driving adoption of Avaya’s latest innovative solutions in the areas of cloud, contact center and unified communications and collaboration,” the company said.
Macatangay brings to Avaya, formerly known as Sierra Holdings Corp., almost 20 years of experience delivering innovative communications solutions to businesses in the Philippines.
According to Avaya, his appointment comes after the company’s restructuring and launch as a publicly traded company.
