Nexsan has announced that Andy Hill has returned to Nexsan as VP of EMEA Sales. Hill has over 20 years of industry experience and has a long track record in driving significant expansion. His return is seen as a reflection on Nexsan’s rapid growth since the company introduced Unity to the European, Middle East, and African markets. He will be heading up Nexsan’s EMEA strategy.
As head of EMEA sales for Nexsan from 2006 through 2013, Hill was responsible for firmly establishing Nexsan’s presence in the geography, growing the business to $26M annual sales. Many of the company’s most valued channel and strategic partnerships were established by Hill during that time.
Hill commented: “I am excited to return to Nexsan. The company has long distinguished itself in the market with innovative solutions to challenging IT problems. Unity is a unique offering with its integrated private cloud, and I’m confident we can rapidly expand into partnerships, geographies, and markets with it. Additionally, the enhancements being announced today for the E-Series demonstrate Nexsan’s continued investment and customer focus with this important product line.”
“Nexsan is lucky to secure not only a seasoned and accomplished veteran like Andy,” said Tony Craythorne, senior vice president of worldwide sales, Nexsan. “But that it was Andy himself who was responsible for Nexsan’s early success in the EMEA market is incredibly valuable to us. We are looking forward to maximizing success and expansion in the coming months with him back on board.”
