Komprise, the industry-leader in intelligent data management, today announced two significant milestones in its global expansion – a deal with HPE to resell Komprise through the HPE Complete program, and the appointment of two key executives to accelerate international growth. The appointments come at a time of record growth for Komprise. In February, the company announced a $24M series C rounding of funding to accelerate global expansion.
Komprise has appointed Chris Moore as SVP WW Sales and Randy Hopkins as VP Global Systems Engineering and Enablement. Moore is an accomplished sales leader with more than 25 years of experience in driving high growth and successful exits of multiple startups including Codenvy (Red Hat), Kace Networks (Dell), AvantGo (IPO; Sybase) and Genesys (IPO, Alcatel). Hopkins has over 25 years in technical leadership roles creating enablement programs for Enterprise companies, including two startup companies Data Domain (IPO) and Nimble Storage (IPO) and leadership roles at Pure Storage, EMC, Dell, and HPE.
“We are excited to have Chris and Randy on board especially with their proven background accelerating growth in successful startups,” said Kumar Goswami, Founder and CEO at Komprise.
