Aryaka, a provider of fully managed SD-WAN and Unified SASE solutions, has announced the addition of Jon Selway as Vice President of Channel Sales in Europe, Africa and the Middle East (EMEA). In his new role, the 15-year channel veteran will lead the Aryaka Accelerate Global Partner Program across the EMEA, reporting to Dennis Monner, Chief Commercial Officer at Aryaka.

Selway comes to Aryaka after 10 years at Lumen Technologies and its precursors CenturyLink and Level 3 Communications.

Launched in January 2022, the Aryaka Accelerate Global Partner Program unifies the company’s partner-led go-to-market strategy under a single comprehensive program for channel partners of all types worldwide. The new program empowers partners to tap into an expanded revenue opportunity made possible by Aryaka’s new all-in-one SD-WAN and secure access service edge (SASE) solutions, which have been packaged and priced to be easy to sell and easy to consume by businesses of all sizes.

“I’m excited to join the Aryaka global channel team and am eager to introduce the future of networking to the partners in EMEA,” said Selway. “Aryaka is truly changing the way businesses approach and achieve secure networking with its fully managed SD-WAN and unified SASE solutions. Aryaka enables partners to offer their business customers network flexibility, simplicity, security and reliability that’s second to none.”
