With over 20-plus years of experience across cloud, cybersecurity and networking, Leblanc brings a proven track record of driving targeted sales strategies and growing businesses in competitive and dynamic environments. Leblanc’s focused priority will be to expand the channel ecosystem and drive new sales and marketing initiatives in close collaboration with Scality’s internal team and partners.
