The current head of sales and operations in Google Greater China steps into the role left vacant by Karim Temsamani.

Google's Scott Beaumont becomes new APAC president
Google has announced Scott Beaumont as the new president of its Asia Pacific operations, replacing Karim Temsamani who stepped down in December after 11 years with the company. 
 
Beaumont, whose new job title is effective immediately, was formerly head of sales and operations at Google Greater China, including Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea. Google will now advertise for a replacement in the role he leaves. 
 
Beaumont has worked for Google for over 10 years, starting in London as director of EMEA partnerships and moving to China in 2013 to replace John Liu as head of operations there. Chinese regulators blocked Gmail in China in 2014, but Beaumont has overseen enterprises such as the opening of a new AI research facility in Beijing. 
 
Prior to joining the tech company, Beaumont founded a start-up called Refresh Mobile and was executive vice president of partnerships at T-Mobile. 
 
Beaumont's new role will be based in Singapore, where he will move to from Shanghai with his family.
