Scott Strubel moves from NetApp to Commvault to drive global partner alliances
Commvault, a global vendor in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and cloud, announced appointment of Scott Strubel as Vice President of Worldwide Channels, responsible for Commvault’s global ecosystem of resellers and distributors. In this role, Strubel will focus on delivering programmes that help channel partners differentiate Commvault’s solutions in the market and deliver value to their customers.
Most recently, he served as Vice President of the Americas Partner Organisation at NetApp, where he was responsible for indirect channel revenues and led teams working with NetApp’s partners throughout the Americas. His organisation included the Americas Virtual Sales organisation, which was responsible for NetApp’s inside sales and demand generation.
Prior to that, he created and led worldwide field operations for enterprise management software at NetApp. Strubel also held prior sales and channel leadership roles at HP, where he was part of a founding management team selected to launch HP Software.
Strubel’s appointment is the latest in a string of new hires aimed at growing Commvault’s partner and alliances organisation. The company recently named Owen Taraniuk as Head of Worldwide Partnerships and Market Development and quickly followed with the hiring of Andy Vandeveld as Vice President, Worldwide Alliances.
The recent executive appointments coincide with several new and expanded industry partnerships with cloud and other enterprise technology leaders such as AWS, Microsoft, Hitachi, Ltd, HPE, and Infinidat.
Both public and private organisations are looking to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives. However, they are also tasked with keeping up with an increasingly complex regulatory and threat landscape, while effectively managing and protecting large volumes of data. Commvault is helping customers meet these challenges and drive their digital transformation with powerful simplicity by unlocking the strategic value of their data through its global network of partners.
“Scott’s role is key to helping Commvault grow and expand its presence and leadership in the channel and his experience in building and growing relationships with market leaders will be a great asset to Commvault and its partner-led strategy,” said Owen Taraniuk, Head of Worldwide Partnerships and Market Development, Commvault.
“His appointment represents Commvault’s continued commitment to partners and is yet another indicator of how the company is investing heavily in growing revenue in the channel.”
“Commvault has been very successful in bringing its solutions to market with partners and I plan to build on that business culture by accelerating growth for both Commvault and its partners” said Strubel. “Commvault’s fundamental path to growth is through its partnerships and the company is committed to increasing its partner focus by deploying more resources at the partner level and simplifying packaging, pricing and licensing to make it easier for partners to deliver value to their customers.”
