Red Hat appoints Asia operations exec

The Linux seller taps a former IBM executive to lead its sales and operations for the Asia-Pacific region.

Linux seller Red Hat has named Stephen McWhirter, formerly of IBM, to lead sales and operations for the Asia-Pacific region, a new position. McWhirter most recently led IBM sales for the region and also was head of Big Blue's software group and its Lotus software group for the Asia-Pacific, the Raleigh, N.C.-based company said Tuesday.

McWhirter, who augments Red Hat's global expansion effort, is based in Australia, the company said.
