Former NetApp Exec Rob Salmon, Now Cohesity’s New President And COO, Gets Ready For A Channel Push
Small Company, Big Ambitions For Salmon @Cohesity, which specializes in the development of secondary storage specifically for #hyperconvergedinfrastructure deployments, in late October made a key executive appointment aimed at helping the company accelerate its growth in midrange and enterprise accounts. @RobSalmon, former president of @NetApp, is now Cohesity’s new president and chief operating officer, where he joins former NetApp colleague @ToddPalmer, currently Cohesity’s vice president of worldwide channels. For Salmon, a 20-year NetApp veteran, the new Cohesity role is an opportunity shepherd a small company during its growth phase, just as he did with multiple roles at NetApp. While Salmon declined to discuss Cohesity’s finances, he told CRN that the company has a lot of wind in its sails as it builds out its product line card and channel programs.
