-- Industry Veteran Joins Commvault to Increase Partner Focus and Expand Partnerships to Drive Revenue Growth --
Tinton Falls, N.J. – April 26, 2018 - Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud, today announced the 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 innovative programs that help channel partners differentiate Commvault’s solutions in the market and deliver value to their customers, while helping Commvault drive growth across the company's solution portfolio.
Strubel’s experience in leading sales and partner organizations in the technology solutions industry ideally positions him for this new role. Most recent, he served as vice president of the Americas Partner Organization at NetApp, where he was responsible for indirect channel revenues and led teams working with NetApp’s partners throughout the Americas. His organization included the Americas Virtual Sales organization, 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 organization. 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.
“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.
