Sam Hunt | VP of Sales - APAC, GitHub
GitHub is the developer company. We make it easier for developers to be developers: to work together, to solve challenging problems, to create the world’s most important technologies.
We foster a collaborative community that can come together—as individuals and in teams—to create the future of software and make a difference in the world.
Sam Hunt is GitHub’s VP for APAC. Sam leads a talented local team and is responsible for overseeing regional partnerships, community engagement, customer support and sales across the region.
Sam joined GitHub in 2015, bringing 18 years of local IT industry experience. He specialises in business efficiency applications with a focus on better collaboration. Prior to GitHub, Sam worked for organisations such as Progress Software, Alfresco, Intelledox, Hitachi Data Systems and Corporate Express, specialising in business solutions driving efficiency, transparency and cost reduction.
Sam is passionate about bringing better technology education to the K-12 community in ANZ and throughout APAC. He is often amazed at what he learns from his 11 year old daughter about what can be achieved with a creative mind and a good understanding of technology (she is way smarter than me).
Sam lives with his family in Sydney where he loves to spend time hiking and fishing with his wife and daughter before cooking for family and friends (with the occasional glass of wine and whiskey enjoyed).
