Cowie will be responsible for managing the expansion of Zerto’s channel sales team through the enablement and support of technology, resale and cloud service provider partnerships. His addition further supports the investments Zerto has made over the last year in partner resources on both the partner facing sales and marketing teams.
Prior to joining Zerto, Cowie held executive leadership roles spanning sales, strategic alliances, product management, and business development at various companies, including Virtual Instruments (acquired by Load Dynamix), Configuresoft (acquired by EMC), Drive Protected (acquired by Allied), Embotics, Microsoft, and Mission Critical Software (merged with NetIQ).
‘Zerto’s businesses value is second to none in terms of business continuity, disaster recovery and IT resilience,’ commented Jason. ‘The ability to recover to seconds before an outage or data loss, together with application protection, and mobility gives businesses the confidence to move forward. Furthermore, I am excited about the opportunity to help an already expanding company maximise its reach around the globe.’
In addition to the hire of Jason Cowie, Zerto’s recruitment rates have nearly tripled year-on-year since it was founded in 2009.
