Nutanix has appointed a new channel boss for EMEA following the departure of Jan Ursi to UiPath.
Cyril VanAgt (pictured) has stepped up from his previous role as channel boss for Southern EMEA, having joined the hyperconvergence player in 2014.
Sammy Zoghlami, senior vice president of EMEA sales at Nutanix, said: "I am delighted to have Cyril lead our channel and OEM operations in EMEA.
"These relationships are critical routes to market for Nutanix and its solutions, and Cyril's vast experience in technology partnering and implementation will see these partners gain maximum benefit and value from what these innovative products have to offer them."
Jan Ursi had previously been Nutanix EMEA channel and OEM boss since 2014, but departed for robotic process automation vendor UiPath earlier this year, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Nutanix said that, in his new role, VanAgt will be responsible for "driving the Nutanix Channel Charter" and strengthening the vendor's relationships with the channel.
VanAgt joined Nutanix following a 14-year career with NetApp.
