Role Responsibilities:

  • Develop and execute the strategy to win in the APAC region - Relativity is committed to building an enduring global company and we've recently instituted a new operating model that affords greater span of control locally.  The MD role is the key strategic leader for the region.  This role will be responsible for developing an APAC-centric plan to grow and expand in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
