September saw new CEOs at StorMagic and WorkFusion and Kyndryl’s first COO. Google Cloud, Microsoft and AMD all announced new executive hires as well.
Adam Famularo became CEO of New York-based automation services company WorkFusion in September, according to a statement.
Before joining WorkFusion, Famularo was CEO of Erwin, a data modeling software provider. He joined Erwin in 2016 with the goal of adding hundreds of new partners, helping existing partners grow their businesses and continuing to develop the company’s product set as a big data mainstay.
Quest Software bought the company—a spin-off from CA—from private equity firm Parallax Capital Partners in January.
Famularo previously held channel leadership roles at Verizon Business and CA Technologies, according to his LinkedIn bio. He left Verizon in 2016 with the title of vice president of global channels. At Verizon, he was “responsible for overseeing indirect enterprise distribution channels—partners, value-added resellers and systems integrators—across the U.S., EMEA, the Asia-Pacific region and Latin America.”
He left CA in 2014 after spending about 16 years with the company, according to his LinkedIn bio. He left with the title of senior vice president of partner sales and was “responsible for developing new business partnerships that will lead to further adoption of CA Technologies software.” His leave was reportedly due to conflict over the strategic direction of the indirect channel, sources told CRN at the time.
