Cloud Storage Vendor Rubrik Hires Former Google Cloud Exec As New Channel Chief

Rubrik, a rising company in the cloud data management and protection technology arena, made a savvy hire this week by naming former Google Cloud channel executive Bertrand Yansouni as its new vice president of worldwide channels.

The hire is something of a coup for startup Rubrik, which is gearing up a new technology channel enablement program this year to bring the company's internal technical capabilities to partners. Rubrik is also launching an effort to identify partners in each sub-region who bring the best skills and capabilities to Rubrik. 

Yansouni told CRN his priority is to wade into the nuts and bolts of Rubrik's channel program and consider how best to evolve them to reward partners and how to best use tools such as the partner portal and deal registration.
