In this role, he assumes responsibility for global partnerships including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Google Cloud. He will also drive new strategic technology partnerships.

He brings more than 30 years of senior-level partnership experience across data infrastructure, security, management, and cloud. He joins from Pure Storage where he served as the VP of alliances and business development. While at Pure, he helped architect the company’s growth from $400 million to $3 billion.

Partners are core to Nasuni’s success. Michael’s long tenure at Pure Storage disrupting the legacy storage industry is very similar to our approach of disrupting legacy NAS with a cloud-based approach,” said David Grant, president. “He brings great experience, stemming from more than three decades in growth stage and large public companies, including a track record of building partnerships at scale. Nasuni achieved phenomenal growth in 2023 with a 46% increase in new customer bookings and a 30% increase in ARR year over year. With the addition of Michael to our leadership team, we are well positioned for our next major milestones.”

I am thrilled to be joining Nasuni’s leadership team at this stage of the company’s growth,” he said. “Nasuni is solving critical data challenges for its customers and is architecturally poised for deeper partner integration. Nasuni has a compelling and holistic approach to data – amplified by the rise of AI and data intelligence, which differentiates it from the competition. With the backdrop of great partnerships and integrations in place already, I look forward to enhancing the value we can bring to our shared customers.”

Company’s recent strategic appointments are helping to drive its momentum, including the recent promotions of Russ Kennedy to chief evangelist and Nick Burling to SVP product. 

In addition, recently the firm revealed its FY23 results including 120+ new enterprise customers, it launched Nasuni Edge for Amazon S3 to deliver high performance at the edge, and a key partnership with energy solutions provider Cegal, which drove 235% growth Y/Y in the energy sector.
