Malaysia – Google’s cloud computing services, Google Cloud, has announced the appointment of Patrick Wee as its country manager for Malaysia. The role will see him spearheading the local go-to-market operations for Google Cloud and Google Workspace. Now being at the helm of the business, Wee will be collaborating with teams across Google to help companies digitally transform their business with enterprise-grade solutions and cutting-edge technology.

Wee reports to Megawaty Khie, regional director of Google Cloud for Indonesia and Malaysia, who oversees Google Cloud’s enterprise, public sector, and corporate and mid-market business segments in both countries.

An industry veteran, Wee’s addition to the team follows recent leadership roles at Zoom and AWS, bringing extensive experience advising and working with C-level decision-makers across financial services, retail, consumer packaged goods, telecommunications, healthcare, high-tech, energy, and the public sector.

Khie said that Wee is joining them at such an exciting phase of growth in Malaysia, where they have been increasingly collaborating with organizations of all sizes—from large enterprises like Axiata Group and Media Prima to digital natives like Bungkusit. 

“We are so excited that a leader with such rich vision, experience, and industry network will be part of our growth journey in this important country,” added Khie.

Meanwhile, Wee himself commented, “I’m excited to be joining Google Cloud, which has been playing an important role in advancing Malaysian organizations’ digital transformation initiatives with the highest levels of security, scalability, and environmental sustainability offered by our open data cloud infrastructure and services,” 

He added, “I look forward to building on our success with local public sector agencies, enterprises, and startups, as we continue working together to foster a dynamic, highly skilled, and inclusive digital society, and accelerate the delivery of made-in-Malaysia products and digital applications to serve domestic and international markets.”

Just recently, Google Cloud has introduced new AI innovations for retail players and, alongside, announced its integration with Accenture. The new AI developments are said to aid retailers in their in-store shelf-checking processes and enhance their e-commerce sites. 

Meanwhile, the integration with Accenture is specifically with its ai.RETAIL platform as part of Google Cloud’s expanded strategic partnership.
