Welcome Robert Enslin to Google Cloud

Thomas Kurian

CEO, Google Cloud


We are grateful to our customers and partners for their participation at our sold out Google Cloud Next event last week and for their fantastic feedback on our strategy and product announcements. During the keynote, we spoke about our commitment to expand and strengthen our customer-facing organization to better help our customers with their cloud transformations. We have a tremendous opportunity to help companies in every industry modernize as we embark on this next phase of growth for Google Cloud.

I’d like to share that after almost two years as President of Google Cloud Global Customer Operations, Paul-Henri Ferrand has decided to take on a new challenge within Google. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul-Henri for all his leadership, and his team for building our organization and making Google Cloud one of the top 3 cloud service providers, according to many analyst firms.

Today, it is my pleasure to introduce Robert Enslin, Google Cloud’s new President of Global Customer Operations. Rob’s expertise in building and running organizations globally, business acumen and deep customer and partner relationships make him a perfect fit for this crucial role. Rob will report to me, and he starts on April 22.

Rob spent the last 27 years at SAP in leadership roles across sales and operations, most recently as the President, Cloud Business Group and Executive Board Member. He developed and managed SAP’s entire cloud product portfolio, led the field revenue and enablement efforts across multiple geographies, and oversaw core functions including professional services, ecosystem, channel, and solutions. Rob brings great international experience to his role having worked in South Africa, Europe, Asia and the United States—this global perspective will be invaluable as we expand Google Cloud into established industries and growth markets around the world.
