SAN FRANCISCO – November 8, 2023 – Scality, a leader in reliable, secure and sustainable data storage software, announced today the promotion of Eric LeBlanc into a new role as the vice president of worldwide channel sales and GM of ARTESCA. Riding a wave of success with ARTESCA — Scality’s simple, secure S3 object storage software for immutable backups — LeBlanc will now extend his responsibility beyond EMEA and Asia-Pacific into a global role driving channel sales across all regions, including the Americas. LeBlanc’s new focus will help drive sustainable business results for the channel and ARTESCA customers.
“Eric has an affinity for growing product lines through the channel. In the last year, he has successfully repositioned ARTESCA as a focused ransomware protection solution purpose-built for our partners. This has fueled a 500% year-over-year product line growth rate — all driven by channel-led business. Now, Eric is well-positioned to replicate his success across all geographies. We are energized and excited to extend his channel expertise worldwide.”
Since his appointment to Scality in July of 2020, LeBlanc has rebuilt Scality’s partner program from the ground up, focusing on repeatable, quick-turn solutions that are easily deployed in smaller mid-enterprise accounts. The approach has driven 95+% of the new logos added to Scality’s customer accounts. To achieve this success, LeBlanc recruited and onboarded over 100 VARs with a new accreditation program and incentives like the ARTESCA challenge, which awards prizes and cash for deal registrations and won business.
In his new role, LeBlanc will focus on extending his expertise globally to:
- Develop strong repeatable channel sales strategies
- Strengthen global partnerships with distributors, VARs, and ISVs
