This announcement was released in partnership with Laiye.
Laiye, the leading Intelligent Automation provider in Asia, has expanded its international team to further position the company for global expansion. In addition to appointing numerous strategic executives, Laiye has successfully established its new overseas office in Singapore to serve as the headquarters of the Asia Pacific region.
The expanded international team includes:
Weng Jiaqi, vice president and CTO of overseas business: Previously vice president and the head of the Delivery Empowerment Center at Laiye, Jiaqi is equipped with over 30 years of international experience in product development and artificial intelligence. He will focus on strengthening Laiye’s intelligent automation solutions by implementing multiple language support and advancing its overall functionality. He strongly believes in the value of user-friendliness and convenience as key factors in overseas markets.
“What is important in overseas market is the products’ learnability and ease of use. If partners cannot master our intelligent automation solutions, they will struggle to compete in the global marketplace. We place great importance on making our products as user-friendly as possible.”
Gary Saw, general manager of Southeast Asia Business: Alongside overseeing the management of the Singapore office, Gary is responsible for all aspects of work related to Laiye’s growth across the Southeast Asian market. A veteran in the IT and software industry with broad experience in various high-tech businesses, Gary expressed his reason for joining Laiye was his strong belief in the company having great potential to realize market opportunities in the global space.
“By 2030, the market potential of artificial intelligence and automation in Southeast Asia will reach $1 trillion. Laiye will seize this opportunity to reshape the future of artificial intelligence and automation and allow artificial intelligence and automation to touch all aspects of daily life.”
Peter Pang, head of sales of Southeast Asia Business: Peter brings deep expertise and decades of experience working in multinational IT firms such as IBM and Oracle where he was responsible for sales execution and business development activities for enterprise-grade solutions. He emphasizes the value of intelligent automation in enabling businesses to achieve a people-centered approach.
“It is important to empower companies to be more human-centric by using humans to empathize with human needs while using AI-capable digital workers to deliver the desired outcomes.”
The company’s current global footprint spans across Asia and Europe with international partners and clients, including Microsoft, Cathay Capital, Nike, SAMART, and Merck. In its ongoing global expansion, Laiye will be cognizant of the expectations and technological trends prevalent in local regions in order to ensure its solutions are relevant to the target markets.
