CRN Names Commvault’s Tully Cento to 2021 List of People You Don’t Know But Should

By Jesse Grindeland

Have you met Tully Cento, Commvault’s Director of Americas Partner Sales? If not, now’s your chance to learn more about this 15-year industry veteran and one of CRN’s 100 People You Don’t Know But Should for 2021!

Tully joined Commvault in 2019 and for the last two years he has made incredible strides in strategically growing our regional, national, and alliances partnerships and marketing investments across all lines of the business, including commercial, enterprise, SLED, federal, and Americas international routes to market. A recipient of Commvault’s Infinity Club, Tully has redesigned district planning, in turn creating tighter alignment between sales and the channel.

In working closely with Tully for the last year, I can personally attest to the impact he has made on Commvault and our partner and sales teams – a key reason for his inclusion in this list.

Every year, CRN’s editorial team compiles this list to bring well-deserved attention to the best and brightest who may not be as visible or well-known as some channel executives, but whose roles are just as important. The selections are based on feedback from leading solution providers and industry executives.

According to Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company, “There are truly talented folks who make game-changing, creative, and strategic decisions every day behind the scenes. We are excited to shine a light on this exceptional group and honor them for their remarkably important work on behalf of their partners and their contributions to the IT channel at large.”

I could not agree more with Blaine’s sentiments. Please join me in congratulating Tully on his latest achievement – joining the “who’s who” of talented industry professionals.

The 100 People You Don’t Know But Should will be featured in the October issue of CRN Magazine and can be found online at
