I look forward to working with BT's talented, dynamic team that works around the clock to keep our assets, our business and our customers safe," says Yan.

Prior to F5, Yan worked at Oracle for over 15 years, holding a number of sales leadership positions, including general manager for the software-as-a-service business in Greater China.
