Zerto has announced Nick Burke as the new Regional Sales Manager for the UK and Ireland.
As a senior business leader for Zerto, a major remit of Burke’s role will be building and leading the UK and Ireland business delivering industry leading IT resilience capabilities for customers. The role will see Burke overseeing the UK and Ireland sales team, driving sales of Zerto’s game-changing solution that is designed to harness and support digital transformation strategies across the region. This follows from the continued momentum Zerto is building in EMEA, such as the strategic hires earlier this year of a new VP of EMEA, David Macmillan, and Regional Sales Director DACH/Netherlands, Vera Wolf.
“In today’s digitally-driven world, being ‘always-on’ is an essential aspect for all businesses and Zerto’s IT Resilience Platform directly addresses this challenge,” said Burke.
“Zerto is one of the leading providers of continuous data protection and IT resilience, a quality that immediately piqued my interest in working for the company. I’m looking forward to working with the sales team and helping them to ensure they continue to understand the customers’ businesses and the challenges they are looking to overcome, by providing the customers with the right tools to help them achieve the ‘always-on’ culture that has become a necessity.”
Burke joins Zerto from Nutanix, where he leaves behind his role as UK enterprise sales director. At Nutanix, Burke was responsible for building and leading the Nutanix UK enterprise and global account teams, and the attention to detail he developed in that role, coupled with the global enterprise experience, poises him to continue to grow the Zerto presence in the global marketplace.
Burke brings more than 25 years of experience to the role, with the majority of that time spent at EMC. During that period, Burke served as global account manager, providing strategic counsel and coordination for an international team of sales and pre-sales professionals.
“We are thrilled to have Nick heading up the sales team in the UK and Ireland,” commented Ziv Kedem, CEO at Zerto.
“His experience will be an invaluable asset to the Zerto team, and his proven ability to build and maintain cohesive, effective teams will help us build on the recent successes in partnership and customer growth.”
