Quorum has ended its search for a long-term CEO by hiring a former NetApp executive to accelerate company growth.
May 28, 2014
The San Jose, Calif.-based disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) company on Wednesday said it has tapped Edward Sharp, a former NetApp (NTAP) executive, as its permanent CEO, effective immediately. Sharp is replacing Walter Angerer, who the company named as interim back in October, 2013.
“Quorum’s focus on keeping our customers’ running in light of a disruption or disaster, with simple one click administration, delivered as a service, really stands out from the crowd,” Sharp told Talkin’ Cloud in an interview.
He has held various roles at NetApp before landing a position as the company’s vice president of emerging products, where he oversaw NetApp businesses focused in the areas of mobile, data protection, flash and object storage.
He said expects to double Quorum’s market presence in 2014, and hope to scale the company to a level where it can capitalize on all its opportunities.
“The company has been heading in the right direction, with a growing list of happy customers,” Sharp said. “I’ve been brought in to accelerate our growth and take the company to the next level of success and customer impact.”
