Datadobi appoints sales and channels head

Datadobi, the unstructured data management software provider, has appointed Matthias Nijs as its vice president of EMEA sales, tasked with extending growth through building up the company's channel.

He has been on the Datadobi EMEA team for the last seven years, most recently serving as a territory manager. As part of a newly created role in the organisation, Nijs (pictured) will now lead the regional sales team with a remit to “enhance” the company’s partner programme.

Datadobi has recently appointed three other senior executives in the EMEA region, for the DACH market, the Nordics and the UK. It is also currently recruiting in France and plans to continue the growth of the wider team in the future, the firm said.

Before joining Datadobi, Nijs, a Belgian, worked as head of enterprise test management at BNP Paribas Investment Partners, and he has also held roles with Capgemini, ACTiS and EMC.

“This is an exciting time to assume leadership of our EMEA sales organisation, as Datadobi is building significant momentum as we work with partners and customers to deliver market-leading unstructured data management solutions,” said Nijs. “My focus will be to expand our network of regional partners, launch future products and build our excellent team through the recruitment of proven sales professionals.”

He will report to chief revenue officer Michael Jack. “Matthias is a trusted member of the Datadobi team, and we are delighted to recognise his considerable achievements with his appointment to this new role in EMEA,” said Jack. “Under his leadership, the sales team is in extremely good hands and we can move forward with confidence at a time when demand for our products continues to grow at an impressive rate.”

Datadobi aims to “bring order” to vendor-neutral unstructured storage environments in the cloud and the data centre, so that enterprises can realise the value of their expanding data stores through greater insight. Founded in 2010, Datadobi is a privately-held company headquartered in Leuven, Belgium, with subsidiaries in New York, Melbourne, Dusseldorf and London.
