JumpCloud is continuing its wave of international expansion with the appointment of Shai Morgan as regional managing director for South Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Central Eastern Europe (EMEA South & Emerging Markets). JumpCloud is not alone in realizing the potential in the region; Global leading cloud vendors such as Google Cloud, AWS and others have also made recent investments in EMEA while introducing new cloud regions into the territories, as the local customer base is growing and is seeking localized support. As the company is investing in international expansion to further its global capabilities, the number one priority is to support, innovate, and expand capabilities for small to medium-sized enterprise (SME) IT admins. JumpCloud customers in the EMEA South and emerging market region already include Swvl, a global provider of transformative tech-enabled mass transit solutions based in Dubai, Plus500, a global fintech firm based in Israel, and Deel, a global leading payroll and compliance platform for international teams.
Organizations across the world are taking advantage of modern, hybrid working models, so they need a solution to secure employees no matter where they choose to work. And, as external events like the war in Ukraine and uncertainty in financial markets introduce more complexity to day-to-day operations, global IT admins are faced with the challenge of securing and simplifying workflows in less-than-ideal circumstances. It is critical that JumpCloud provides robust support and resources to power IT teams around the world to deliver on its mission to Make (Remote) Work HappenTM.
With an entrepreneurial spirit and strong business acumen, Shai Morgan is a proven leader in setting and leading geo expansion initiatives into Southern EMEA and EMEA Emerging markets. For over 20 years, Morgan has led sales business units, business development, and built strategic partnerships in both mature territories and emerging ones. Morgan previously held leadership positions with global technology and consultancy firms such as Google Cloud, cVidya Networks (acquired by Amdocs), EMC, Ernst & Young, and others.
As EMEA demand accelerates, JumpCloud has invested in expanding its EMEA presence by adding critical resources, including hosting a series of roadshows, offering JumpCloud University courses and certification, and plans to double its EMEA managed services providers (MSP) footprint in the next 12 months. Currently, over 300 MSPs across Europe make JumpCloud’s Open Directory PlatformTM the core of their IT operations, leveraging it to securely connect users to cloud and on-premises resources and devices.
