With a career spanning 40 years in IT infrastructure, he brings experience and leadership to further drive leadership in S3-compatible hybrid cloud data management.
He currently serves as a board director at Couchbase, Nebulon, Token, M10 Networks, and AntemetA. His career highlights include serving as the SVP and GM of the global Hewlett Packard storage business.

Before that, he spent 18 years at HP, where he held various executive positions in marketing and general management. His experience encompasses diverse roles in storage, computing, and networking, both in the UK and USA.
He expressed his anticipation of joining Cloudian, stating: “As the enterprise IT landscape shifts towards hybrid-cloud operating models, the power of Cloudian’s native S3 API and scale-out design becomes increasingly evident. I am eager to contribute to the journey and work alongside the talented team in advancing the success of their hybrid-cloud storage platform.”
