StorONE announced that innovative sales executive Chris Noordyke has been named its Chief Revenue Officer. In this new position, Noordyke will leverage his extensive experience building go-to-market teams and strategies to expand worldwide growth of the company’s S1 Enterprise Storage Platform.
Noordyke has successfully delivered consistent revenue growth, efficiency of capital and market share expansion throughout his 20 plus year career. He is an accomplished storage go-to-market leader with experience at Tegile Systems where he served as Vice President of North American Channels as well as various roles at Dell Compellent and EMC.
Noordyke comes to StorONE from Rezilion, a cybersecurity company, where he served as Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Business Development responsible for Go-To-Market Strategy and Execution. Previously, Noordyke was Vice President of Business Development and Alliances at Diamanti and Chief Revenue Officer at Blue Medora.
“The allure of coming to a company like StorONE as it is entering its hypergrowth stage was one that was too difficult to ignore,” said Noordyke. “With a fully developed solution that checks all the boxes that enterprises need to overcome limitations of traditional storage, I feel we are well positioned to not only be successful in the market but to truly disrupt it. I look forward to helping ensure that StorONE is positioned to maximize all of the opportunities that are out there.”
As CRO, Noordyke will help lead the team to increase business and sales opportunities of StorONE’s comprehensive storage solution. StorONE is software-defined storage consolidation that, starting with backup, enables customers to consolidate all storage uses cases thanks to the efficiency of the S1 Engine.
Backup-first storage consolidation enables IT to extract the full potential of modern backup software by providing a cost-effective backup storage target. StorONE unleashes features like block-level backups, backup archiving, and instant recovery, elevating the backup process from digital dumping ground to complete business continuity for all workloads.
With the backup-first foundation set, IT can, as it makes operational and financial sense, consolidate performance-demanding production workloads onto StorONE, eliminating the need and cost of multiple storage silos.
“To truly succeed in the world, you need a lot of expertise,” said Gal Naor, CEO and co-founder of StorONE. “We have spent years perfecting our Enterprise Storage Platform to overcome the biggest storage problems facing enterprises. That’s our expertise. And now we are fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Chris. He has been a key part of fast-growing companies in the past and I’m excited that he will now be a part of the StorONE team as we continue to expand our footprint all over the world. This is a winning combination and I’m excited to hire such a person at just the right time for the company.”
