“Based on direct feedback from partners, Commvault has improved all aspects of partner engagement in an effort to simplify, streamline and scale their business to take full advantage of the growing opportunities with customers,” Lada said. “I’m excited to be a part of the company’s strategic goal to scale the global partner program, drive growth through a focused route-to-market approach, and bring to market new and unique joint solution offerings that increase value to partners and customers.”

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in August.

Lada brings to Commvault more than 20 years of experience in developing and implementing OEM and channel strategies for technology industry leaders. Prior to joining Commvault, he was part of the executive teams at Cisco and HP. He most recently served as Cisco‘s vice president of worldwide global customer-success sales, and before that was HP‘s vice president and general regional manager for the Americas and EMEA.

“Wenceslao is a proven global executive and business leader with more than 20 years of experience of driving results, building and empowering high performance, diverse multicultural teams,” said Owen Taraniuk, Commvault’s head of worldwide partnerships and market development. “We’re building a world-class team to lead our routes to market and he will be integral in driving market strategies for Commvault as well as alliance partnerships.”

Reporting to Taraniuk, Lada will head Commvault’s new worldwide alliances team, which merges its current OEM and alliances teams.

In July, Commvault announced significant changes to its partner program that support enablement and engagement.
