Neo4j®, the graph database and analytics leader, has hired technology veteran Kristen Pimpini (KP) to lead the company’s Asia-Pacific region. KP oversees a revenue team across field and partner operations, services, and customer success organisations, collaborating cross-functionally with go-to-market and engineering operations. He reports to global Chief Revenue Officer Alyson Welch.
KP’s appointment comes as APAC ranks as Neo4j’s fastest-growing region, with strong double-digit growth in 2023 driven by high cloud and generative AI customer adoption and continued growth in 2024. Enterprise customers include Far EasTone Telecommunication Co. Ltd, Healius, Keppel, Mercari.inc, Natixis, PT Pegadaian, Tata Consultancy Services, Tokopedia, Western Australia Police, WorkSafe New Zealand, Woven Planet Holdings, and many others.
“KP’s track record is rooted in his relentless commitment to strategic client relationships, value delivery, and a collaborative winning culture where everyone has a voice and a purpose to deliver brilliant customer experiences,” said Alyson Welch, Chief Revenue Officer, Neo4j. “He is the perfect leader to scale our operations and customers’ success across the region.”
KP previously led APJ for Twilio. He has more than 20 years of sales leadership with companies across Asia that also include Braemac, Telstra, and Aspect Software (now Alvaria). He succeeds Nik Vora, who is moving to Europe with his family next month.
