Backup solutions vendor Veeam Software, has announced the appointment of Amaury Dutilleul-Francoeur as vice president, EMEA Partner Network and Graham Crich as vice president, EMEA Partner Services.
According to the company, the appointments reflect the diverse nature of Veeam’s EMEA ProPartner Network with two key priorities: the digitalisation of processes and cloud service offerings, and enablement of higher levels of value-add created by partners to meet the evolving requirements of end-customers.
Promoted from his role as director, EMEA Channels, Dutilleul-Francoeur is now responsible for leading all programmes and activities which support Veeam’s EMEA ProPartner Network. He has been with Veeam for over six years supporting partners having held various channel leadership roles in EMEA and APJ.
Crich, formerly vice president of EMEA Cloud Services at Veeam, is now responsible for the generation and acceleration of value-propositions and cloud services by Veeam’s EMEA ProPartner Network.
“Veeam conducts 100% of its sales through the channel and we are fully committed to enabling our partners to increase and diversify their value-propositions for customers by offering modern data protection solutions across cloud, virtual, SaaS, Kubernetes and physical environments delivered either as a service or on-premises,” said Daniel Fried, General Manager and Senior Vice President, EMEA, and Worldwide Channels at Veeam. “To align with the rapid evolution taking place in today’s market, this dual leadership structure means we can focus on supporting our partners’ innovation and cloud value-propositions, as well as providing the tools and skills required to support Digital Transformation.”
“I am excited by this role given the scale of the opportunity to drive further growth within our EMEA partner network,” said Dutilleul-Francoeur. “Given my experience working with channel partners and background in management consulting, my focus will be on how we continue to evolve the value partners can offer customers looking to modernise their data protection practice and digitally transform, as well as how Veeam continues to innovate and offer simple, flexible and reliable solutions that do this.”
Crich added that: “Having led Veeam’s EMEA cloud division for the past three years, I am delighted about this opportunity to evangelise the role of cloud services in delivering Modern Data Protection that supports digital transformation to our partners across EMEA. Our partners are forming strategic relationships with customers who are looking for a data management platform that is future proof and provides leading multi-cloud solutions.”Click below to share this article
