Before joining ExaGrid, Redmond had run customer support for Cohesity in the EMEA region for over five years, and has also led customer support teams at Tintri and at EMC for Data Domain. Powell joins ExaGrid from Commvault, where he was a 16-year veteran within their support organization, having spent the last seven years as the Director of Customer Support in EMEA.

Our business in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific is rapidly growing,” said Bill Andrews, President and CEO of ExaGrid. “We have been focused on growing our support staff internationally to support our global customer base, and are pleased to welcome Ian Redmond and Simon Powell to the ExaGrid team to lead our international support engineers.”
