The Carbonite channel chief is out at the data protection vendor following a restructuring of its channel organization. The growing company has opted to divide its channel sales and marketing organizations, with the former remaining under the larger Carbonite sales umbrella and the latter becoming part of its marketing arm.
"As we were rebuilding out the marketing organization, we saw the opportunity to scale up for the channel organization as well, to take what we've done successfully in customer marketing to channel marketing," Norman Guadagno, senior vice president of marketing at Carbonite, told CRN.
Whitlock had previously overseen both entities as vice president of channel sales and marketing since March. He had joined Carbonite in December 2016 following a four-year stint at Kaspersky Lab and a three-year stop at software vendor Brainshark.
