Continues Strong Momentum in Public Sector as the Need for Data Protection and Disaster Recovery Solutions Increase amid Growing National Cyber Security Concerns
Reston, Va., January 4, 2017 - Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a leader in cloud data protection, backup, recovery and archive for public sector organizations and enterprises, today announced the promotion of Craig McCullough to Area Vice President, U.S. Federal Sales, effective immediately. In this new expanded role, McCullough will be responsible for accelerating growth and adoption in the critical public sector market of the Commvault Data Platform and the company’s portfolio of software and services.
McCullough joined Commvault in April 2014 as the Director for U.S. Federal Civilian sector. Under his leadership, Commvault’s federal team consistently grew in both size and revenue. He was also instrumental in building out Commvault’s U.S. DOD team by adding experienced sales talent to the organization.
“Craig has done a remarkable job expanding our reach and penetration into the vital Federal Civilian public sector market,” said Scott Little, Vice President of Sales, Americas, Commvault. “His promotion is well deserved and indicative of his influence and deep sector experience. We look forward to great things from the combined Federal team under his leadership.”
McCullough has a diverse background with nearly two decades of experience. During his most recent tenure with Hewlett-Packard, he ran the U.S. Federal Enterprise Server and Storage business within the civilian sector.
“I’m excited in my new role to expand our leadership and presence in the public sector market,” said McCullough. “Given the recent compromises and threats to data security on federal government networks and servers, at no other time in our country’s history has there been a greater need for data protection and disaster recovery preparedness in the public sector. Commvault is uniquely positioned to handle these demands and to enable our federal government clients to meet their mission objectives through secure access to their data, when they need it, from any location.”
