Data storage vendor Scality has appointed former HPE executive Peter Brennan as its chief revenue officer (CRO), with a focus on the channel.
“Scality’s addition of the CRO role reflects its mission to capture increasing market share in the thriving file and object storage space,” said the firm.
Expanding growth activities worldwide, Brennan will lead sales and marketing efforts to maximise revenue, with an emphasis on partners and the channel, Scality added.
“Peter and I share an unfaltering belief that serving the channel serves the customer and, ultimately, maximises your success,” said Jerome Lecat, Scality CEO. “I have every confidence he is the right person to take us to the next level of growth.”
During the last three years at HPE, Brennan has helped build out the giant’s as-a-service model. Prior to this, he led a worldwide specialist sales organisation for VMware, focused on hyper-converged and hybrid-cloud solutions. He has also held channel and sales leadership positions at LeftHand Networks, Opsware, Commvault and EMC.
“Scality’s technology has the enterprise-scale capabilities that stand above a crowded object storage market space,” said Brennan. “I’ve seen what goes on behind the scenes, and loyal customers trust Scality for guidance.
“Also, our affordable mid-market ARTESCA solution has increased revenue opportunities for partners, bringing enterprise-class features within the reach of more customers. It’s a perfect mix for expansion, and I look forward to extending our partner-first approach to achieve Scality’s growth objectives.”
