Cloud data management vendor Cohesity has appointed James Worrall as head of its expanding EMEA channels.
Worrall (pictured) has responsibility for scaling the company’s EMEA partner ecosystem while advancing the company’s go-to-market strategy in the region. He will report into the Cohesity global partner organisation led by Mike Houghton.
Before joining Cohesity, Worrall was vice president of EMEA channels at F5 Networks, and EMEA channels sales lead at Juniper Networks. Englishman Worrall is based near Oslo, Norway.
“Cohesity is already helping numerous organisations throughout EMEA transform how they back up, protect, secure and derive value from data through next-gen data management, but I believe we’ve only scratched the surface of what’s possible and the opportunity for partners is immense,” said Worrall. “I am outrageously optimistic about what Cohesity can do working hand-in-hand with exceptional partners throughout the region. The future of our business is in the channel and I’m focused on continuing to grow, scale and nurture our partner ecosystem.”
“James is full of energy and ideas and has been instrumental in building world class channel programmes for other IT vendors,” added Mike Houghton, vice president for the global partner organisation. “As enterprises throughout the EMEA region are looking to deploy next-gen data management technologies, James will play a key role in the EMEA organisation, ensuring our go-to-market strategy and local partner ecosystem are scaling and evolving to capture these opportunities, while helping partners differentiate and positively impact their bottom line.”
This June, Cohesity named Richard Gadd as vice president and general manager for EMEA sales.
