COLUMBUS, Ohio, January 25, 2010 - Veeam Software, award-winning provider of systems management tools for VMware virtual datacenter environments, today announced the promotion of Daniel Fried to managing director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Fried began his career with Veeam Software in 2008 when he launched the company’s French subsidiary in Paris and assumed leadership of the Southern EMEA region. In 2009 he expanded his responsibilities to build and supervise the Central Europe region for Veeam. Fried joined Veeam from VMware, where he was Director, Partner Sales, Southern EMEA.
“Daniel has spent the past 20 years creating and nurturing international high-tech companies, such as VMware, Alcatel and Philips,” explained George Sidoris, Veeam Software Vice President of Worldwide Sales. “His promotion follows on the heels of his excellent work and Veeam’s extraordinary growth in Europe. Despite the economic crisis, Veeam grew by 130 percent in Europe between 2008 and 2009.”
In little more than a year, Fried and his team have created a network of more than 1,000 partners in Europe, enabling Veeam to make a substantial impact on the small and medium business market and win a significant number of large enterprise accounts.
“Our 2010 target is to maintain that same growth and expand our presence into large companies by investing in sales resources throughout Europe,” Fried said. “Not only does Veeam Software give me the opportunity to continue on the virtualization journey, but it also enables me to contribute to the expansion of a company that actually listens to its customers and provides creative and innovative management tools to a market that I’ve known from the start.”
