Mundle brings to Quantum over 35 years of experience leading channel strategy and programs at storage and cloud solution companies, and most recently served as Vice President of Worldwide Channel Programs with VEEAM. Prior to VEEAM, he was Vice President of Worldwide Channel Sales for Seagate’s Cloud Systems and Solutions business; previously Mundle spent 10 years at Hewlett Packard Enterprise in increasingly senior roles, leading its storage and industry standard services business in the Americas.
Adding Mundle’s industry experience to help grow Quantum’s revenue and global reach through partners is another step in the company’s transformation, and will further accelerate Quantum’s progression to new software-defined, hybrid- and multi-cloud architectures, as well as recurring subscription and as-a-Service business models.
Quantum will hold its European Elevate executive channel partner event April 15-16, which will be conducted in a video format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The North American Elevate event will follow a similar model, as the company adopts more engaging video learning tools in response to the global pandemic.
The Quantum Alliance Program, Quantum’s award-winning channel program, recently launched a redesigned and well-received deal registration application to reduce the time that channel partners need to request Quantum Deal Registration.
