EVP & GM Americas
Rackspace

Only a few companies have achieved the level of name recognition that Rackspace, the managed cloud computing and website hosting company, has in recent years. That gives Nair, who joined Rackspace in the summer of 2019, a great base upon which to build and apply his formidable sales experience. As executive vice president and general manager of the company’s Americas sales region, he’s in charge of a $2 billion profit and loss statement. “The mantra is to grow in the exploding cloud services market with a fanatical customer focus,” he writes of his role. Previously, he held a variety of leading sales positions across a range of big tech and cloud firms, including Dell and HP. He’s also won numerous accolades from colleagues over the years, with one writing: “His openness is courageous and his positive attitude can be infectious.”
