Both roles report directly to Daniel Fried, General Manager and Senior Vice President, EMEA, and Worldwide Channels at Veeam.
“Veeam conducts 100% of its sales through the channel and we are fully committed to enabling our partners to increase and diversify their value-propositions for customers by offering Modern Data Protection solutions across cloud, virtual, SaaS, Kubernetes and physical environments delivered either as a service or on-premises”, said Daniel Fried, General Manager and Senior Vice President, EMEA, and Worldwide Channels at Veeam. “To align with the rapid evolution taking place in today’s market, this dual leadership structure means we can focus on supporting our partners’ innovation and cloud value-propositions, as well as providing the tools and skills required to support Digital Transformation”.
