Information management company, Commvault, has appointed Owen Taraniuk as its new vice-president of Asia Pacific and Japan.
In the new role, Taraniuk will be responsible for driving growth in the company’s recently launched solutions portfolio.
Commvault senior vice-president of worldwide sales, Ron Miller, said Taraniuk’s strong leadership, vision, and targeted experience in the information content technology space would help foster an innovation-based culture in the expanding APAC team.
“He comes at a time of unprecedented opportunity for Commvault, particularly in the Asia Pacific region with key emerging markets, burgeoning strategic alliances and technology development hubs,” he added.
According to a company statement, Taraniuk has already launched a transformation program, which will see a realignment of the company’s sales functions and partner engagement model.
“Commvault is going through a major transition,” said Taraniuk.
“There is huge change in the market in which we operate, including competitive disruption, a shift in CIO conversations, and new opportunities for strategic alliances. This places us in an enviably strong position for growth.
“Our planned realignment program will enhance our customer coverage at a regional level and deepen our engagement and enablement of partners. We are investing in Asia Pacific and making changes that will allow us to better service the needs of our customers and partners.”
Taraniuk has held a number of senior leadership positions for multi-nationals across EMEA and APJ, including Kofax, Open Text Corporation, Groupe Inova, ABS Group and Dun & Bradsheet Software. He was most recently vice president of Asia Pacific and Japan for EMC’s Enterprise Content Division.
