BridgeHead Software has created the post of Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales as part of the company's ambitious sales growth plan to take full advantage of the success and momentum built to date. This position will be filled by Ryan Witt who will be responsible for growing the company's revenue globally.
BridgeHead Software has recently experienced rapid growth, especially in the US healthcare sector. A core addition to the newly formed management team, Witt's appointment demonstrates significant investment in the company's go to market strategy and strengthens BridgeHead Software's ability to deliver enhanced revenue growth in the integrated storage management market.
Tony Cotterill, co-founder and CEO at BridgeHead Software, commented: "Ryan is a consistent and considerable achiever in revenue generation within the storage arena. He will play a pivotal role in the master plan of harnessing, controlling and developing the opportunities we have here. We are shedding the small entrepreneurial cocoon and are poised for that rare moment when a company finds it has the right product, in the right place, at the right time."
Witt joins the BridgeHead Software team from Hitachi Data Systems, where he built an impressive and demonstrable reputation. While at HDS, he held a variety of key roles including Netherlands Country Manager and UK Sales Director, Finance & Telco Sector. Noted for his ability to drive strong revenue growth through new customer acquisition, Witt has over a decade of managerial and sales experience.
Witt concludes: "Bridgehead has a tremendous proposition. Its open storage management approach delivers now what other storage management vendors only have on the ILM roadmap. My goal is to make BridgeHead the preferred storage management partner for our relevant channel whilst also ensuring larger partners take notice and then take action. It is time to take this message to market aggressively and to translate clear technological strength, first into mind share and then into market share."
