Continues to attract top talent with the appointment of new executive to lead partner growth in Asia Pacific and Japan
Singapore – June 23, 2016 – Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a global leader in data protection and information management, today announced the appointment of Mark Velthuis as Vice President of Indirect Business for Asia Pacific and Japan.
Leading the newly unified indirect overlay business for the region, Velthuis joins Commvault from EMC, bringing almost two decades of experience in the technology solutions industry.
“Mark joins Commvault with an outstanding track record of building strategic partnerships and a strong channel partner network that will help us grow and provide opportunities across our ecosystem of partners,” said Owen Taraniuk, Head of Commvault in Asia Pacific and Japan. “He will join an award-winning program deeply committed to differentiating our indirect offerings in the market, leading us to better serve our customers and partners. We are confident Mark’s leadership will deepen our engagement with our indirect business and will be a key part of our success as we continue to drive momentum in the market.”
Joining in January, Velthuis’ appointment is integral to Commvault’s growth strategy through channels and distributors, alliances and systems integrators. This includes strengthening newer strategic partnerships such as Nutanix, and further expanding integration with the company’s more traditional partners such as NetApp and Hitachi Data Systems.
“I am excited to join Commvault at a time when there is opportunistic change in the market, including competitive disruption, a shift in CIO conversations and new strategic alliances,” said Velthuis. “As we continue to innovate and modernize the way organizations protect and manage information through our portfolio of integrated solutions, and move forward in our new financial year – the year of the partner – my priority will be on deepening our engagement and enablement of partners across the region.”
Velthuis has held a number of senior-level leadership positions for both blue chip and start-up companies, including Axiom, BT, Whittman-Hart / marchFIRST, and Boer & Croon Strategy and Management Group. He was most recently Senior Director, Strategic Alliances for EMC Corporation, where he led the Market Development team across the region and worked closely with service providers, system integrators and consultants to create new markets and value propositions.
Velthuis joins Commvault on the heels of it receiving a 5-Star rating in the 2016 Partner Program Guide, which marked the second major recognition for the company by The Channel Company this year. In February, The Channel Company Channel Company named Commvault’s Vice President of Worldwide Channels & Alliances, Ralph Nimergood, to its exclusive list of the 2016 Most Influential Channel Chiefs.
