Data analytics software vendor Qlik has promoted Chris Moore, the company's Americas channel executive, to be the vendor's top channel chief following the departure last month of channel chief Toni Adams for a position with a cloud software company.
Moore, who has been Qlik's Vice President, Channels – Americas for more than two years, is now Senior Vice President, Partners and Alliances, according to a company spokesperson.
Moore takes over from Adams who left Qlik, based in Radnor, Pa., in December to take the position of Vice President of Partner and Alliance Sales at Medallia, according to Adams' LinkedIn page. Medallia is a San Mateo, Calif.-based developer of Software-as-a-Service applications used to capture customer feedback.
Neither company has issued announcements about the changes. The Qlik spokesperson said the company has been notifying its channel partners this week about Adams' departure and Moore's promotion.
Moore has been with Qlik since October 2015, managing the company's Americas channel operations. He joined the company from Veeam Software where he was the company's Senior Director of North America Channels for more than four years, according to his LinkedIn page.
Before that he worked at Hewlett-Packard Co. for nearly a dozen years in multiple positions, including Director of the company's U.S. Channel Storage Sales and, earlier, Business Operations Manager of Americas Channel Storage.
Adams had been Qlik's channel chief since November 2015. During his tenure he managed a significant overhaul of the company's partner program through 2016 and 2017 as the company ramped up its channel sales. He oversaw the expansion of the partner program beyond license sales to include services and subscription revenue, and the addition of program tracks for consulting and service provider "influencer" partners.
