DataCore Software announced significant investments into the Nordic region with the appointment of a new Regional Manager, Ilpo Wilkman, based out of Stockholm, Sweden. Ilpo has more than seven years experience in growing the virtualisation market and partner community, holding former positions at VMware and TechData.

Comments Wilkman, “This is a really exciting time and opportunity for DataCore Software. The team has already established a stable base from which to grow further. I join having built strong virtualization partner communities in Sweden both at VMware and at TechData – success that I intend to leverage to grow the DataCore business. End users in the region like the fact that with DataCore’s SANsymphony-V they avoid hardware vendor lock-in. My responsibilities will be to grow channel sales and increase brand presence in the region.”

In addition, DataCore is pleased to announce the appointment of another Scandinavian as the new Worldwide Alliances Director – Swedish native, Håkan Söderbom, based out of Redmond, Washington. Håkan has 13 years’ experience leading multiple alliance and partnership efforts at Microsoft Corporation, having formerly held the position of Director of Partner Business Development. Within the region, Söderbom will use his native skills and experience to boost DataCore’s marketing presence.

Adds Söderbom, “Whilst I am primarily based in Microsoft’s backyard of Redmond, Washington my local knowledge of the region and language skills will help enable me to build the DataCore presence across the Nordics – working with Alliance partners including Microsoft, VMware, Citrix and Nexsan working alongside Ilpo and the team.”
