Stewart Garrett appointed to lead MongoDB's ASEAN business

Stewart Garrett has joined MongoDB as Regional VP, ASEAN, where he will help organisations transform and innovate with MongoDB's developer data platform. The newly-created role will see Garrett responsible for MongoDB's go-to-market across the region.

Garrett reports to Simon Eid, MongoDB's Senior VP of APAC. "We have very high expectations for Stewart and what he can do in this region. He is everything we look for in a leader at MongoDB – obsessed with making customers successful and building a great culture where the team can have the transformational experience of their career," said Eid. 

Prior to joining MongoDB, Garrett led the New Relic business across ASEAN, Korea and Hong
Kong for more than four years. Originally from Scotland, Stewart has also led sales teams in Australia for SAP and worked across a number of countries in Europe.

"I don't think there is a market more dynamic and innovative in the world as ASEAN. At MongoDB, we already have an excellent foundation with proven technology, a great team and thousands of fantastic customers. But we're just at the beginning of a huge shift in how data is being used and applications are being built," said Garrett.

"There are three key areas I'll be focused on - customer success; building and scaling a great culture; and working closely with our partners to help deliver growth across the region."

According to IDC, the worldwide data management software opportunity is significant. The market is forecast to be worth about US$94.6 B in 2023, growing to approximately US$137.6 B in 2026.*

MongoDB already has more than 1,700 customers across different industries and geographies in ASEAN. These include Amar Bank, an Indonesian digital bank; Open Government Products, Singapore's GovTech division; and GLS, one of Thailand's major hospital groups.
