“The anticipation of the new Veeam Backup & Replication v7 combined with the acceleration of our backup and replication for Hyper-V business has produced the best quarter in Veeam’s six year history,” said Ratmir Timashev, CEO of Veeam. “The combined growth of our customers, partners and employees has made the addition of Peter Ruchatz as chief marketing officer a much needed appointment. His proven record in developing successful global technology product marketing and branding programs that scale will be an invaluable asset as we continue to gain worldwide market share in modern data protection.”

Ruchatz joins Veeam from where he was vice president marketing, EMEA central region. Previously, he spent seven years at Microsoft in field and product-marketing roles, first as business group lead in Germany, followed by five years spearheading business applications marketing for North America, then as global product-marketing lead over go-to-market programs, compete and pricing. Earlier in his career, Ruchatz spent five years at The Boston Consulting group leading strategy and operational efficiency programs for clients in the technology sector.

Veeam also announced Insight Venture Partners as a new strategic business partner, and as part of this relationship, Insight acquired a minority share. As one of the most respected VC and private equity firms in the systems management, virtualization and security industries, Insight will use its expertise to guide Veeam in identifying and exploiting new growth opportunities in the next several years. As part of the agreement, Insight Managing Director, Michael Triplett, will join Veeam’s Board of Directors. Triplett has been instrumental in investments in more than 20 fast growth companies.

“Veeam’s growth trajectory really garnered our attention,” said Triplett. “Our successful history of working with Timashev and his team at Aelita makes this an exciting business partnership. We’re looking forward to helping Veeam scale and expand globally to achieve prominent goals in both market share and revenue.”
