Over the last few years Almeida has held senior sales roles at Genesys and Extreme Networks. Prior to that, he spent 19 years at Cisco, his last role being sales and channel director.

"I am very excited to join Unisys, a company with a track record in the region of nearly 100 years. The strategic relationships developed with customers position [Unisys] differently in the IT market, in which data analytics, cloud technologies, managed services and cybersecurity become ever more present," says Almeida.

Almeida is based in São Paulo and reports directly to Eric Hutto, senior vice president and global president of enterprise solutions.
