Qumulo recruits its CMO

Qumulo, a leader in file storage, just announced the recruitment of its CMO, Peter Zaballos, a veteran marketing executive with a proven track record. He is director at the board of directors at QuickPivot, chairman at Insignia Systems and left his previous CMO position at SPS Commerce last January. This is a normal addition in the development of a company that needs to strengthen its leadership layer.

Interesting, he never worked for a storage company except at LSI Logic 30 years ago, we notice his period at RealNetworks like many Qumulo and Isilon people in the past. It's an indicator that the company is looking for something different with an unique market approach.

The arrival of Peter Zaballos means also that Jay Wampold, VP of Marketing, who arrived in February 2017, leaves the adventure.

The company is now ready for a next stage of growth with potential extensions of its leadership in file storage in Media and Entertainment to other market segments, a new round but seriously an IPO. But will the market let Qumulo play as an independent disruptor, not sure, as the company is very attractive for a few gorillas, who are already in partnership such Cisco and HPE.
