Gigamon partners have a new global leader. The company has hired Dee Dee Acquista, previously with Mandiant, as its vice president of worldwide channel and alliances.


Gigamon’s Dee Dee Acquista

Acquista brings 25 years of experience in channel strategy. She and her team will build on the company’s channel-first strategy to propel the Gigamon Catalyst Partner Program.

“As organizations continue to navigate their hybrid and multicloud transformational journeys, I look forward to working with Gigamon, and its channel and alliance partners to meet the evolving needs of our global customers and accelerate revenue to fuel our long-term growth,” Acquista said. “This is a time of significant momentum for Gigamon, as the company continues to invest in and advance its deep observability pipeline, while bolstering purpose-driven partnerships and deeper ecosystem alignment.”

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in January.

Gigamon Partners Get Proven Leader

Doug Woodley is Gigamon‘s senior vice president of worldwide sales.

“Dee Dee’s intense passion for channel execution, paired with her esteemed recognition across the channel community positions her well to accelerate the continued success of the Gigamon channel efforts,” he said. “Gigamon has a well-established bench of strategic channel-minded individuals. With Dee Dee’s proven track record in driving channel success, she’s the ideal person to lead our team through the next phase of the company’s growth as we and our partners continue to equip cloud-first organizations with the deep observability capabilities they require to realize the full transformational promise of the cloud.”

Before joining Gigamon, Acquista was Mandiant‘s vice president of channel sales. There, she was responsible for partner program management, strategy, design and execution.

Before that, she was senior vice president of global channels at Beyond Trust. She’s also held top channel leadership roles with SentinelOne, Proofpoint and Forcepoint.

Acquista joins Gigamon at a time when organizations are facing intense pressure to successfully operate across complex, hybrid cloud infrastructures, all while maintaining a strong, resilient security posture, the company said. This presents an “enormous” opportunity for both the company and its channel partners.
