Quantum appoints new Chief Revenue Officer

San Jose, Ca

Quantum Corporation has appointed Henk Jan Spanjaard as its Chief Revenue Officer.  Spanjaard joined the company three years ago and has since then been the lead for EMEA sales at the company.

“Henk Jan has done an outstanding job in leading EMEA Sales since joining the Company three years ago,” said Jamie Lerner, Quantum’s president and chief executive officer. “With his demonstrated track record and expertise in global sales strategy and execution, we are excited for Henk Jan to step into this new role at a time when we see improved pipeline for our Activescale Cold Storage and DXi products and are poised to take advantage of market opportunities when our new Myriad product becomes generally available. I look forward to working with him to continue executing on our strategy to increase sales efficiency, product mix and revenue growth to further drive margin improvement and profitability across our business.”

Spanjaard, 57, brings more than three decades of experience improving sales execution and growing revenue – including developing new, profitable relationships at large enterprise customers and strategic channel partners – and has a strong track record of building and strengthening distributed sales teams and channel presence. He served as the Company’s Vice President, EMEA Sales beginning in July 2020. Prior to that, he held several technology sales leadership roles, including at Drivescale, A10 Networks, Inflobox, and Netapp.

Spanjaard said, “I am excited to take on this new role with Quantum. I believe we have a substantial opportunity ahead of us with our growing pipeline and expanding product portfolio, including our exciting new Myriad product. I look forward to applying the successful EMEA sales strategy to our entire global team and driving our growth in enterprise markets by leveraging the breadth and depth of our end-to-end product portfolio.”

Spanjaard will succeed John Hurley, who will transition out of the company in December to pursue personal and philanthropic interests. Lerner said, “John provided invaluable sales leadership for Quantum at a critical time and assisted in transforming the inside sales organisation. We thank him for his many contributions and wish him every success in his next endeavours.”
