CTERA makes big management changes

CTERA, the edge-to-cloud data services vendor, has a new partner alliances head following a senior management rejig at the firm.

Oded Nagel (pictured) has been promoted to chief executive officer, Michael Amselem has been promoted to chief revenue officer, and Saimon Michelson has stepped up to vice president of alliances.

All three executives are veterans of CTERA’s management team. Former CEO and co-founder Liran Eshel will now serve as executive chairman of the board, after 15 years of being the main man and evangelist at the company.

Over the last five years, Oded Nagel served as chief strategy officer, responsible for product strategy and global partnerships.

The company said the promotions come on the heels of another "record year" for the company in which it grew annual recurring revenue for its solutions by 38%, and logging over 150 petabytes of data and 100s of billions of files managed by CTERA customers.

News of the top table changes first came at this week's IT press Tour of Israel, which IT Europa is currently attending.

At the event, the company put more meat on the bones of its new and evolving ransomware protection, cloud storage routing, and unified file and object storage management offerings.
