Tue, 17th Oct 2023

Data protection and cyber resilience solutions provider, Commvault, has announced the rapid progression of Martin Creighan, who ascends to the position of Vice President for the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. This just months after his appointment as AVP for ANZ in June 2023. Commvault, a frontrunner in data protection for hybrid cloud organisations, has identified Creighan as a key player in their strategy to deliver industry-top tier cyber resilience offerings in the face of a pervasive landscape of cyber threats.

Prior to joining Commvault, Creighan held the position of Vice President and General Manager for Cloud Software Group. There, he supervised significant brands including Citrix, NetScaler, and Tibco. His impressive tenure at these firms, coupled with his excellent performance and significant customer wins since joining Commvault, has earmarked Creighan for fail-safe success in his newest role. The tech veteran intends to use his rich industry experience to replicate his past successes across the broader APAC market.

Riccardo Di Blasio, Chief Revenue Officer at Commvault, comments on Creighan's promotion: "We are excited to have Martin Creighan lead our operations in the Asia-Pacific region. His work across ANZ has been remarkable in driving the business forward and we are confident that we have made the right choice. His extensive experience and deep industry knowledge will be crucial in driving our growth and success as we continue to empower organisations in the APAC region to become cyber resilient."

Speaking about his new role, Martin Creighan says, "The APAC region is critical to our growth, and I’m honoured to step into this position at a pivotal time for the company. I look forward to building on strong foundations and leading this high-calibre team to continue growing our footprint across the APAC region."
