Technology Marketing Veteran Who Led Data Analytics Company Tableau from Initial Launch Through Worldwide Expansion Joins Qumulo Board
SEATTLE – Jan. 29, 2019 – Qumulo, the pioneer of hybrid cloud storage, today announced that Elissa Fink, former chief marketing officer for Tableau Software, has joined Qumulo’s Advisory Board. Fink brings nearly 30 years of extensive marketing experience scaling high-growth technology companies to Qumulo as the company continues its expansion.
Fink was instrumental in helping Seattle-based Tableau grow from an ambitious startup to an international public company. In the process, Tableau’s team reinvented the category of business intelligence and analytics.
Fink joined Tableau in 2007 as its vice president of marketing, when the company was still a small startup. She went on to oversee the entire marketing portfolio, encompassing marketing strategy, demand generation, brand awareness and visibility, enterprise marketing, community and online activities, as Tableau’s revenue nearly doubled each year. Under Fink’s leadership in marketing, the company grew from under $5 million in revenue to nearly $1 billion.
“I am thrilled to be joining Qumulo as an advisor at a time when the company has established its leadership in the hybrid file storage market, and so clearly sees the worldwide opportunity ahead,” said Fink. “I have seen firsthand that companies have huge amounts of data both on premises and in the cloud – and will continue to do so. Qumulo is the smart way for companies to not only scale out data storage but as importantly scale across – to public clouds and multiple regions.”
“It’s exciting to see the incredibly talented technology professionals here at Qumulo working together to seize the enormous opportunity we are creating, while also accelerating our market momentum and record growth,” said Bill Richter, president and CEO, Qumulo. “We provide the world’s best solution for storing, managing and empowering file-based data, and expert advisors like Elissa are another reason why we will continue to lead this market.”
Qumulo has pioneered the category of hybrid cloud enterprise file storage, and is experiencing strong customer demand at a time when many organizations are embracing hybrid cloud and multi-region computing. Qumulo enables robust multi-region storage, and storage managed across private data centers and the public cloud.
“Elissa brings an unbeatable combination of both incredible talent and deep experience building category-defining companies, at a time when the market’s demand for Qumulo is stronger than ever,” said Peter Zaballos, CMO at Qumulo. “Elissa’s counsel will be instrumental as we build our brand and scale our presence globally.”
