Technology and business solutions provider NTT has announced the appointment of Miriam Murphy as CEO of its European business, effective from 3 February.

Reporting to NTT's global CEO Abhijit Dubey, Murphy will focus her understanding of the region and IT industry to drive sales and business development, as well as to extend customer partnerships. 

“Miriam’s regional and technology expertise will bring immediate value to our company and, most importantly, to our customers,” Dubey commented. “Her experience in business transformation and integration at scale, including go-to-market strategies and workforce enablement, will support our customers and ecosystem at a time of great change. 

With more than 25 years of IT experience, Murphy joins NTT from Tech Data, where she was a member of the European Executive Board and served as Senior Vice President of its Advanced and Specialized Solutions business for EMEA.

There, the industry veteran was responsible for go-to-market strategy and P&L management, spanning data centre and next-generation technology solutions portfolios – including cloud, IoT, analytics, security collaboration and associated services.

“Miriam has worked and lived across Europe giving her extensive insights and experience into customer challenges, cultural variations across the region, and also opportunities,” Dubey continued. “Adding Miriam to our team will supercharge our efforts in Europe.”

Commenting on her new role at NTT, Murphy said she was drawn by the company’s standing and belief in the power of technology.

“NTT offers a wealth of capabilities for customers to support their digital transformation journeys. Joining an organisation with such rich heritage, and which has been formed through the integration of best-in-class solutions, is a unique opportunity,” said Murphy. 

“I was also drawn by NTT’s belief in the power of technology as a business enabler and as an overall force for good, societally and economically.”
