Cohesity appoints James Worrall as Head of EMEA channels

Cohesity has appointed James Worrall as head of EMEA channels at the next-gen data company.

Prior to joining Cohesity, Worrall held positions at F5 Networks and Juniper Networks, where he had responsibility for developing the overarching EMEA channel programme and strategy.

At Cohesity, he will report into the global partner organisation, led by Mike Houghton, and be tasked with advancing the company’s go-to-market strategy in the region.

Houghton, Vice President, Global Partner Organisation, Cohesity, said: “James is full of energy and ideas and has been instrumental in building world class channel programmes for other IT vendors.

“As enterprises throughout the EMEA region are looking to deploy next-gen data management technologies, James will play a key role in the EMEA organisation, ensuring our go-to-market strategy and local partner ecosystem are scaling and evolving to capture these opportunities while helping partners differentiate and positively impact their bottom line.”

Worrall commented: “Cohesity is already helping numerous organisations throughout EMEA transform how they back up, protect, secure and derive value from data through next-gen data management, but I believe we’ve only scratched the surface of what’s possible and the opportunity for partners is immense.

“I am outrageously optimistic about what Cohesity can do working hand-in-hand with exceptional partners throughout the region. The future of our business is in the channel and I’m focused on continuing to grow, scale, and nurture our partner ecosystem and in the process empower more customers to reap the benefits of modern data management.”
