Commvault makes two senior hires for APAC region

Commvault has hired Jo Dean to the newly-created role of Area Vice President for Channels and Alliances, APAC, in a move that signifies a renewed focus on the organisation’s channel business. The data protection giant recently announced the release of its AI-based cloud platform, at the same time announcing significant vendor partnerships with a wide range of cyber security players.

Michel Borst, a veteran in digital transformation and innovation, has joined as Area Vice President for Asia.

In both cases, these leaders bring strong technology expertise to the table, a passion for helping customers achieve business outcomes, and a keen understanding of the role Commvault Cloud plays in driving cyber resilience.

In their new roles, Michel and Jo will focus on delivering advanced capabilities through the Commvault Cloud platform.

“Recognising the tremendous potential and momentum within the APAC region, it was crucial to onboard leaders like Michel and Jo with proven industry experience and strong sales and partner expertise. I wish them great success on this journey,” said Martin Creighan, Vice President, Asia Pacific, Commvault.

Joanne Dean, a strong channel advocate with two decades of experience working within partner ecosystems, is based in Perth, Australia. She will be responsible for spearheading the region’s channel strategy, working alongside Commvault’s partner ecosystem to jointly deliver cyber resilience for the hybrid world.

“Enterprises across APAC are at an important juncture in their digital journey as the opportunities to do more with data have never been greater, but the need to protect, secure, and recover data has never been more important,” said Dean. “I’m excited to lead Commvault’s channels and alliances efforts and work hand-in-hand with our partners to help joint customers achieve their business goals and advance resilience. The partner ecosystem that we’ve built with security, AI, and cloud leaders is a testament to the power of collaboration in combatting a landscape marked by chaos and complexity.”
