Amersham, UK – 1 April, 2008 – Compellent Technologies, Inc. (NYSE Arca: CML) today announced the appointment of Jon Brooks as business development manager for the UK and Ireland.
In his new role Brooks, who has more than 15 years experience in the storage and IT industry, is responsible for growing sales of the Compellent Storage Center, the company’s award-winning storage area network (SAN), through a select network of channel partners across the region. He is based at the company’s European headquarters in Amersham, Bucks, and reports to Andy Hardy, managing director of international sales for Compellent.
“From the outset, the Compellent SAN was designed to be the ideal storage platform with its unique blend of all-channel sales, scalable technology, and efficient manufacturing,” said Hardy. “Jon brings a wealth of experience in account development, partner liaison and technical expertise, and we expect his contribution to channel partners and end-users alike to be significant.”
“Compellent’s ability to actually reduce disk drive requirements with technology like automated tiered storage is a big reason why I joined the team,” said Brooks. “I’m thrilled that Compellent continues to drive modular storage innovation instead of rip-and-replace solutions to manage data growth, which translates into a better end-user experience and more sustainable revenue opportunities for the channel.”
Brooks was previously with EMC Corp. where he held the position of territory account manager on the company’s commercial sales team. Before EMC, Brooks also held senior business development positions at Plasmon and Adaptec, both of which involved a large element of reseller, partner and channel liaison.
