Foreman was appointed vice president of global channel sales at Nutanix, where he'll look to help partners displace rival tech and drive growth around the hyper-converged infrastructure expert's channel ecosystem.
The former Informatica senior vice president has spent most of his IT career at IBM, holding roles such as senior design architect, product manager and director of channel sales for the company's Cloud and Smarter Infrastructure division. In that last role, Foreman led a channel business with more than 6,000 global partners.
"This product portfolio we have at Nutanix is really on the leading edge of what customers are doing in the way of innovation in their data centers," Foreman told CRN. "It's refreshing for me to be in a company that's providing innovative technology to customers, and not technology that's dated and not where the market is headed."
