Dell's MD for Italy has departed the vendor to become the new VP of EMEA for data management vendor Commvault.
Marco Fanizzi (pictured) will take on the EMEA role at Commvault effective immediately, presiding over more than 70 markets spanning Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Fanizzi was most recently Dell's managing director for Italy for three years, and was previously EMC's Italy sales lead for a further five years.
He joins fellow former EMC exec David Boyle to Commvault's leadership roster, who was recently named as VP of sales for the Americas.
"I am confident that Marco's extensive experience - especially in the financial and enterprise sectors across Europe - will rapidly accelerate the expansion of our already growing EMEA business," Commvault chief revenue officer, Riccardo Di Blasio, said.
Fanizzi said that among his initial priorities will be a push to better communicate what the vendor is doing in the market.
"I see the company leadership establishing an entirely new market for truly seamless integration of storage and data management processes. These are bold and pioneering steps for any vendor in the market and we need to ensure all of our EMEA users know about it," he said.
"My first priority is to spend time with our people, customers and partners to listen to what they need and expect from next-generation data management solutions so we can continue to deliver on those."
