— Industry veteran brings 26 years experience in technology solutions to Commvault to drive continued growth and expansion of the company’s EMEA business —
Reading, U.K. – Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a global leader in data protection and information management, has announced the appointment of Christian Lang as Vice President Sales of Europe, Middle East and Africa. Responsible for leading and driving the company’s continued growth in EMEA, Lang joins Commvault bringing 26 years’ experience in the technology solutions industry with a strong track record of building software- and SaaS-based IT businesses across Europe.
“I look forward to Christian bringing his proven expertise to supplement our already very successful EMEA team,” said Ron Miiller, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales, Commvault. “Not only does he bring experience in key vertical sectors that are critical to EMEA expansion, but also a clear idea about the evolving requirements of our customer base, through multiple, strategic, channel and Enterprise sales roles across the region.”
Lang comes to Commvault from his most recent position as General Manager & Vice-President Automotive Sales EMEA at IHS Inc., having driven significant fiscal achievement and revenue growth. Lang also held senior leadership positions for multi-nationals across EMEA, most notably over 13 years with Autodesk.
“Commvault globally and in EMEA is an expanding organisation and we are recognised, by our customers, partners and leading industry analysts as leader in the market due to our breadth and quality of solutions,” stated Lang. “I personally see great opportunities – especially given internal upheaval among our major competitors – for greater strategic alliances to be forged and wider business value delivered to end-users.”
His appointment comes on the heels of the company’s recently launched Integrated Solutions Portfolio, including the Commvault Data Platform, Commvault Services and Commvault Software, which — in its eleventh version — delivers a truly open, searchable and automated way for organisations to protect their data, manage their information and reduce risk in their adoption of new technologies.
Just last month, Commvault was named a leader – for the sixth straight year – in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Software.
