John Jester has been appointed as chief revenue officer.

Jester will lead Veeam's go-to-market growth strategy and help build upon Veeam's position as the #1 provider of Modern Data Protection solutions spanning Cloud, Virtual, Physical, Hybrid, SaaS and Kubernetes.

"I'm extremely excited about the opportunity to join Veeam," Jester says.

"Businesses are supporting a rapidly changing and increasingly complex IT environment involving the adoption of cloud, as a Service and containers.

"On top of that, the frequency and scale of cyber threats, particularly ransomware, continues to explode. All of this increases the likelihood of severe business interruption.

"Veeam has demonstrated an industry-leading vision and strategy for Modern Data Protection that delivers the resiliency customers need to move forward with digital transformation.

"I am looking forward to working with the team to help deliver on this vision."

"Veeam's growth has been impressive, but we are scratching the surface of our potential," Veeam CEO Anand Eswaran says.

"While we have reported double-digit ARR growth and are already the leading provider in our space, we have scope to further accelerate share, expand our partnerships, and extend our presence in and value for every organisation as more enterprises accelerate their adoption of hybrid cloud.

"With John's vast experience working with partners and across all customer segments, and with a proven track record especially in both hybrid cloud and enterprise, I am excited about what we can achieve.

"With John on board, and working in conjunction with Veeam's stellar leadership team and customer-obsessed employees, I am confident we can take Veeam to new levels of leadership, market share and customer and partner success."
