Sales Management Veteran Mark Seaman Joins Zetta as Vice President, Sales
Seaman Will Drive New Channel Initiatives in Growing Backup and Disaster Recovery Segment for the Managed Service Provider and SMB Markets
Zetta today announced the appointment of Mark Seaman as Vice President, Sales. As a seasoned sales veteran who had led sales teams in a wide variety of technology companies ranging from early start-ups to $15 billion organizations, Seaman is charged with expanding sales and market penetration into the growing managed service provider and small-to-medium business markets for Zetta.
“As the growth of data volumes shows no sign of slowing down, enterprises are more aware than ever they need a robust backup and recovery solution that can securely protect their data offsite in the cloud and further ensure business continuity,” said Grossman. “In looking for the right sales leader to leverage this growing demand for advanced cloud backup and disaster recovery solutions, Mark has a proven track record in building sales teams that scale quickly and are highly effective in capitalizing on customer demand.”
Zetta’s advanced direct-to-cloud backup and disaster recovery solution comes at an opportune time in the market adoption of cloud data storage and DR solutions. According to a 2015 IDC analyst report, cloud backup and recovery solutions are expected to account for more than $1 billion by 2018.
“Market intelligence shows there is tremendous unfulfilled potential in the number of organizations that still do not have a robust, cloud-based backup and disaster recovery platform in place,” said Seaman. “My goal is to ensure businesses and MSPs can benefit from Zetta’s advanced data protection technology to get their business up and running quickly after a disruptive event.”
Mark Seaman brings more than 20 years of sales management experience to Zetta. Most recently, Seaman served as VP of Sales at Soonr, responsible for all facets of revenue and business development. He led key initiatives in building the corporate and channel sales teams while developing a sales model that decreased ramp time and allowed for faster, more predictable, revenue cycles and increased profitability.
Prior to Soonr, Seaman served in sales leadership roles for SugarSync, Demandbase, WebCollage, Channel Intelligence, Nextron Communications, and as founder and Vice President of Sales at Creative Associates.>
