Company Doubles Headcount in Americas Region in Support of High Revenue Growth
San Francisco, CA – May 25, 2017

Scality, world leader in object and cloud storage, today announced an expansion of its field organization in response to strong growth in its Americas region. Account executives, sales engineers, professional services and support were added to the field organization doubling the total number of customer-facing personnel in the region, bringing the total count to fifty-five.

Success in the U.S. is the foundation of any successful high-growth company and Scality is delivering on that axiom. The Americas region posted 139 percent topline growth in 2016, thanks to strong strategic account acquisitions. Company success in the region has been bolstered by a strong alliance partner ecosystem, which includes Cisco, Dell, and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, along with compelling year-to-date customer wins in the banking and finance, media and entertainment, industrial manufacturing, government, and service provider markets.

“Scality has seen significant year-over-year growth across all regions, and in Americas it happened across all targeted industry segments,” said Erwan Menard, president and COO at Scality. “We have doubled our customer-facing Americas team across the board over the last 18 months to drive that revenue growth and assure optimum customer-focus across the region. We now count three main offices across the U.S., including San Francisco, Reston, and Boston, and have employees across the country to ensure full coverage.”

Scality deepened its functional leadership bench with three key industry veteran appointments, including Rupa Multani, Michael Valen, and David Koury who respectively lead Americas’ Sales Engineering, Professional Services, and Customer Support.

Rupa Multani brings her passion for customer advocacy to her new role as director of sales engineering for the Americas where she will deliver with her team best-in-class pre-sales support to Scality customers and partners. Ms. Multani began her career in professional services at Sun Microsystems. After Sun, she moved to sales engineering at Veritas Software and has held key sales engineering roles at Symantec and EMC.

As senior director of professional services for the Americas, Michael Valen manages customer solutions engineers (CSEs) and technical account managers (TAMs) whose job it is to efficiently deliver projects to Scality customers. Prior to Scality, Mr. Valen spent two years at Canonical as support director for the company’s solutions stack, including Ubuntu Linux and OpenStack.  Beginning his career as a university intern at IBM, he spent seventeen years working his way up from system administrator, data center manager, solutions engineer, business area manager, and ultimately to global solutions manager.

David Koury joined Scality to lead support activities in the region. Mr. Koury comes to Scality from HPE, which he originally joined through HPE’s IBRIX acquisition. At HPE he held key management roles across engineering and support in its storage division and managed comprehensive customer support activities prior to that at IBRIX.

Talent acquisition veteran Curtis Smith was hired to ensure Scality maintains its accelerated pace of hiring the best and brightest storage experts across all disciplines. Mr. Smith comes to Scality via Stolo and Yeeldr, both companies he founded at which he grew the headcount from 10 to 90 and from 100 to 300 employees, respectively, and Zocdoc where he was senior technical recruiter.

To support this high growth into the future and to accommodate its new and growing Research and Development team, Scality is now based in the venerable Bank of America building at 555 California Street, San Francisco, CA. The larger corporate headquarters will comprise a total of 80 employees.
