Cloud data management vendor Cohesity has appointed Kevin Delane as its new global chief revenue officer, replacing Michael Cremen.
Delane (pictured) has a 30-year track record in business development, sales operations, international sales, strategic alliances and partner management. He will leverage his experience in these areas to oversee the sales and partner functions worldwide, said Cohesity.
Prior to joining Cohesity, he was VP of worldwide sales at Pure Storage, where he was responsible for the company’s global go-to-market strategy, including sales, field sales, sales operations and systems engineering.
Additionally, he spent more than 18 years at EMC in a variety of sales leadership roles, including SVP of business operations at the Isilon storage division.
“This was an opportunity I simply could not pass up,” said Delane. “The company has amazing leaders, culture, a partner-first mentality, a great international team and a focus on innovation that’s helping customers win the war against ransomware. I look forward to working with customers and partners globally to help them advance their business and do more with data.”
Mohit Aron, founder and CEO at Cohesity, added: “Kevin has proven success in advancing global go-to-market strategies and consistently delivering strong results. With an extensive knowledge of the technology industry, strong partner and international expertise and a management approach that puts culture first, Kevin will play a key role in accelerating our global momentum.”
This June, Cohesity also hired Richard Gadd as VP and GM for EMEA sales. He joined from Hitachi Vantara, where he served as SVP and GM for EMEA for five years.
Michael Cremen announced he was leaving Cohesity last month. It is believed he is joining an organisation outside Cohesity's space.
Existing Cohesity end customers include Cisco, Northumbria Police in the UK, Novartis, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust, NASA, the San Francisco Giants, the US Department of Homeland Security and the US Department of Labor.
