NGINX Continues APAC Expansion with New Tokyo Office; Hires Takeshi Nakajima as Country Manager

NGINX establishes Tokyo location with plans to add local partners,
local language and technical support

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NGINX, Inc.,
the company based on the popular open source project and offering a
suite of technologies for developing and delivering modern
applications, today announced an expanded international presence with
the establishment of an office in Tokyo, Japan. Following on the heels
of a successful APAC launch in Australia and Singapore last year, the
new office will provide local language and technical resources to NGINX
customers and partners in Japan.

With 2018 as its largest year of growth to date, NGINX has more than
tripled its business in the last three years, including 100 percent
revenue growth among the Global 2000. In Japan, NGINX has experienced an
exponential rise in market, with 1,000 percent growth since 2014 in the
number of websites running NGINX technology.* This high-growth path
paves the way for substantial investment from the company in the
Japanese market, which is expected to become NGINX’s fourth largest
market.

The Tokyo location will be led by Takeshi Nakajima, who joins NGINX from
Canonical. Previously, Nakajima served as the General Manager of
Midokura, where he oversaw sales, partnerships, and marketing for the
APAC region. Nakajima spent the majority of his career at Sony
Corporation, where he served as manager of several product lines,
including the VAIO Business Group, before joining Evernote as the VP of
Japanese Operations.

“NGINX is an established, well-respected company with significant
visibility in APAC,” said Nakajima. “I’m looking forward to working with
the team to expand the organization and offerings in Japan, while
providing technical support and unparalleled technology to our customers
in this innovative region.”

NGINX currently works with over 1,600 customers, including three of the
five largest global banks, three of the five largest U.S. retailers, and
five of the ten largest technology companies. In Japan, NGINX already
has existing relationships with the largest companies. In addition,
NGINX will continue to expand its partner program in the region, working
with existing partners like SIOS Technologies and Macnica Networks Inc.
to target enterprises in the technology (ecommerce, gaming, media,
etc.), telecommunications, manufacturing, and financial services
industries.

“I spent many years of my career in Japan and have a personal connection
to the market. I’m thrilled that we’re growing our presence as it’s
critical to our long-term vision for Asia. By establishing a presence in
Tokyo, we’ll be able to better serve our customers and partners,” said
Gus Robertson, CEO of NGINX, Inc. “The timing is perfect as Japanese
companies are just now exploring microservices, a journey we can help
them accelerate. Given these trends and based on our current momentum,
we are poised for high growth thanks to our experienced local leadership
team and anticipate that Japan will become the fourth largest market for
NGINX.”
