Veeam’s Larissa Crandall

Crandall will guide the data protection provider’s investments in its global partner and alliance ecosystem. That’s to ensure customers’ data is protected across multiple environments, whether cloud, virtual, physical, SaaS or Kubernetes.

Crandall joins Veeam after four years at Gigamon. There, she led the global channel and alliances organization to record growth in channel contributions, the company said. She also developed its partner program and was an integral part of its partner-first strategy.

Prior to Gigamon, Crandall held top channel leadership roles with Scalr, Kaspersky, Unitrends, Itrica and more.

Crandall has spent her entire career in the channel working for security, networking and cloud vendors.

John Jester is Veeam’s CRO.

“With more than 35,000 partners and alliances, our 100% partner-driven global ecosystem is critical to the success of every aspect of our company,” he said. “Larissa’s appointment underlines the importance we place in our partners. She has a proven passion, vision and a track record of leading programs and extended teams to heightened success based on collaboration, alignment and mutual strategy. Veeam continues to evolve. But our partner-focused approach to build, market, sell and integrate Veeam solutions and Veeam-powered services remains one of our highest priorities.”

See our slideshow above for a Q&A with Crandall on what Veeam channel partners can expect in the months ahead.
