Expanded executive team will enhance Cirrus Data’s customer focus, expertise and agility as the company responds to demand for cloud data management solutions
SYOSSET, NY, June 9, 2020 – Cirrus Data Solutions (“CDS”), a market leader in storage area network (SAN) data migration and data management technology, announced it has expanded its senior management team with the promotion of Ron Croce to Chief Revenue Officer and Sammy Tam to Vice President of Engineering. In these newly created positions, Croce and Tam will work closely with Cirrus Data’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer to respond to the growing data migration and data management challenges in the cloud market.
Industry analyst firm Technavio recently issued a report on the cloud migration services market, noting that the increased adoption of hybrid cloud by organizations seeking a flexible environment is causing this segment of the market to expand. The firm reported, “The cloud migration services market is expected to grow by USD $7.1 billion during 2020-2024.”
As a leader in the data migration and data management marketplace, management recognizes the significant opportunity for the company with the growth of cloud migration. The promotion of Ron Croce to Executive Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing, along with the appointment to the newly created Chief Revenue Officer position, will enable CDS to add other talented management team members, increase scale and respond dynamically to the changing market conditions.
“CDS has grown into a strategic provider of solutions for the data migration and data management marketplace. Ron’s contributions to our success cannot be overstated. He is a critical part of our executive team, fostering relationships around the world to expand our market presence,” said Wayne Lam, founder, and Chief Executive Officer, Cirrus Data Solutions. “The growing market for data migration and data management in the cloud represents a terrific opportunity for CDS. Ron’s newly expanded role will help us quickly capture market share and profitably scale the business.”
The second addition to the management team is the promotion of Sammy Tam to Vice President of Engineering. For the last seven years, Sammy has been instrumental to the development of the CDS data migration solution working alongside Wai Lam, the company’s Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer. With the growth in the cloud migration data management marketplace and the number of Data Galaxy deployments underway worldwide, Tam’s promotion will be critical to enabling Lam to focus on the strategic direction of Cirrus Data’s technology.
“Sammy is essential to the successful development and expanded capabilities of CDS’ technology,” Wai Lam, Co-founder, and Chief Technology Officer, Cirrus Data Solutions. “CDS is fortunate to work with some of the world’s largest organizations on their data migration and data management challenges. With the new cloud migration and data management market expanding, CDS needs to deliver once again, solutions that are robust, secure, and cost-effective. As we expand our Data Galaxy cloud deployments, Sammy will help us ensure our technology meets today’s needs and is ready for the future.”
