London, UK and Santa Clara, CA  – Dec. 5, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cohesity, the pioneer of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced the appointment of Klaus Seidl as the new Vice President of Sales for the EMEA region. Seidl’s main objective is to expand the company’s activity in EMEA and in particular spearhead its expansion into the DACH market (Germany, Austria and Switzerland). The nomination of Seidl, with his proven experience in the industry, will accelerate the momentum Cohesity has fostered since its European launch a little more than a year ago. It reflects Cohesity’s aim to further intensify its growth in Europe and expand into new markets, notably DACH, where Seidl will be a worthy asset.

Klaus Seidl has been at the forefront of European growth for a number of prominent technology companies, such as Riverbed Technology, NetApp, and, most recently, SimpliVity Corporation, where he carried out the rare feat of leading the EMEA team to match US revenues.

News Facts

  • Klaus Seidl will be based in Munich where he will direct the EMEA sales effort
  • Cohesity is preparing for worldwide expansion by adding executive talent with a proven record of success, including the recently announced appointments of Rob Salmon as President and Chief Operating Officer, and Carl Eschenbach to the Board of Directors.
  • Seidl’s previous position was VP Sales EMEA at SimpliVity Corporation, where he was the first employee in Europe, joining the startup in 2013. Over the following four and a half years, he grew the organisation to over one hundred-people strong, while navigating the EMEA business to reach extraordinary figures that matched US revenues.
