Erwin Hires Former Verizon Channels Executive, Prepares For Partner Offensive With GDPR On The Horizon
Data modeling software developer Erwin wins kudos this week for hiring former Verizon channel executive Wendy Petty as its senior vice president of global sales and services.
The move comes as Erwin gears up for what it sees as a huge opportunity for itself and its channel partners with the coming GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) data protection standards for all companies doing business in the European Union. Erwin CEO Adam Famularo sees GDPR driving a wave of software developers toward data governance projects, creating a business opportunity for the company and its channel ecosystem.
Petty worked at Verizon for three years where she served as executive director of global channels in the carrier's Enterprise Solutions group. She previously worked at CA Technologies – which owned Erwin for a number of years – where she was vice president of partner sales and senior advisor of the cloud solutions unit.
