Small Company, Big Ambitions For Salmon

Cohesity, which specializes in the development of secondary storage specifically for hyper-converged infrastructure deployments, in late October made a key executive appointment aimed at helping the company accelerate its growth in midrange and enterprise accounts.

Rob Salmon, former president of NetApp, is now Cohesity's new president and chief operating officer, where he joins former NetApp colleague Todd Palmer, currently Cohesity's vice president of worldwide channels. For Salmon, a 20-year NetApp veteran, the new Cohesity role is an opportunity shepherd a small company during its growth phase, just as he did with multiple roles at NetApp.

While Salmon declined to discuss Cohesity's finances, he told CRN that the company has a lot of wind in its sails as it builds out its product line card and channel programs.

For a look at some of Salmons plans for this hot startup, turn the page.
