"We see Santiago as a fantastic and much-needed asset to our team, not least because of his demonstrable leadership experience in the digital transformation, hyperscaler and channel side of the IT sector. His sales and marketing approach, holistic business acumen and special expertise in enterprise IT will help drive our growth and consolidate our leadership position within Iberia, addressing Modern Data Protection needs for cloud, virtual, physical, enterprise and Kubernetes workloads," said Patrick Rohrbasser, regional vice president, Southern Europe and Africa.
"I am excited to join Veeam at what is a pivotal time for many Iberian businesses as they continue to embrace digital disruption and cloud transformation projects. My role will involve helping them adopt or accelerate the Modern Data Protection strategies needed to help them optimize business continuity and ensure maximum availability, protection and security for their data.

The recent 2022 Veeam Data Protection Trends Report showed that 83% of organizations plan to increase their data protection budgets this year – about 6% more than last year. I have the opportunity to help our customers and partners make the best Modern Data Protection investments for their business needs. In addition, I want to support each of our ProPartners in their growth and thus foster even stronger and more intimate relationships with our customers”.
