Veeam Software, the world leader in Modern Data Protection, has appointed Dustin Driggs as its new Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Driggs brings with him over 30 years of experience in successfully building and managing large multinational businesses. Driggs will lead Veeam's global financial function, including strategy and reporting, and will play a crucial role as Veeam continues to gain market share and provide best-in-class secure backup and fast, reliable recovery that keeps businesses running.
Driggs joins Veeam from Barracuda Networks, where he worked for over 16 years, most recently as Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President, leading the finance and accounting function. Before joining Barracuda Networks, Driggs held senior leadership roles at Cisco Systems and PwC.

"Veeam is helping to keep businesses running when the unexpected happens, whether it's ransomware, natural disasters, human error, outages, or a cyber-attack. That's an incredible value proposition that in turn creates huge opportunity in a fast-growing market," says Dustin Driggs, CFO, Veeam. "I'm excited to join such a talented and innovative team and look forward to the opportunity to contribute to Veeam's continued global success."

"Dustin brings great experience, insights and skills to Veeam. With more than 5,000 employees, 450,000 customers and well over $1B in ARR, it's an exciting time in our development and evolution; we're growing rapidly by keeping businesses running," says  Anand Eswaran, CEO, Veeam.

"In a digital world, our value proposition of proactively protecting data across every type of environment and helping companies rapidly recover from unexpected events is incredibly critical to every organization. Dustin is a valuable addition to our strong leadership team at Veeam, and I'm confident his expertise and experience will make a great impact here."

Driggs succeeds Chuck Garner, who is leaving Veeam after successfully leading the company's finance, strategy, and operations functions and having completed its $5 billion sale to Insight Partners in 2020. Eswaran thanked Garner for his leadership and dedication at Veeam and said, "He's made valuable contributions to the company, and I wish him much continued success."
