Before joining the team at Cohesity, Worrall was vice president of EMEA channel at F5 Networks and EMEA channel sales lead at Juniper Networks. In these and previous roles, Worrall held responsibility for developing the overarching channel program and strategy, with a focus on incentivizing partners, simplifying processes, and making the technology easy to understand and resell. Worrall is based north of Oslo, Norway, but traces his sales roots back to his youth in Bolton, UK, where he worked in door-to-door sales.

“Cohesity is already helping numerous organizations throughout EMEA transform how they back up, protect, secure, and derive value from data through next-gen data management, but I believe we have only scratched the surface of what is possible and the opportunity for partners is immense,” said Worrall.

Cohesity offers services consolidated on one multi-cloud data platform: backup and recovery, disaster recovery, file and object services, dev/test, and data compliance, security, and analytics – reducing complexity and eliminating mass data fragmentation.
