Commvault has announced the appointment of Christian Lang as vice president sales of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Lang joins Commvault with 26 years' experience in the technology solutions industry with a track record of building software-and SaaS-based IT businesses across Europe.
Ron Miiller, senior vice president, worldwide sales at Commvault said: "I look forward to Lang bringing his proven expertise to supplement our already very successful EMEA team. 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 added: "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. 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."
Commvault recently launched its integrated Solutions Portfolio, including the Commvault Data Platform, Commvault Services and Commvault Software, which delivers an open, searchable and automated way for organisations to protect their data, manage their information and reduce risk in their adoption of new technologies.
Lang joins Commvault from IHS where he was positioned as general manager and vice president automotive sales EMEA. Lang also held senior leadership positions for multi-nationals across EMEA, most notably over 13 years with Autodesk.
