DDN appoints Tom Ellery General Manager of Tintri

DataDirect Networks has announced that Tom Ellery has been appointed to General Manager and senior vice president of field operations for the Tintri by DDN division.

The appointment comes on the heels of two consecutive quarters of growth since its acquisition by DDN in September 2018. Tintri continues to provide VM-aware software and appliances, receiving the Product Leadership Award for Storage Management from Frost & Sullivan. 

'Tom has a very impressive track record as a senior executive in the field of technology,' said Paul Bloch, president and co-founder at DDN. 'The Tintri by DDN division is in high growth mode, and we are putting in place a pair of experienced hands to take the business to the next level of success and execute on our vision.'

Ellery, who has more than 30 years of experience in staffing, growing and managing highly effective operational teams, will take responsibility for the general management of the Tintri by DDN organization including Sales, Marketing, Field Technical, Channel, Alliances, and Ecosystem Partnerships. This marks a return to Tintri in an executive leadership role, where he was instrumental in triple-digit sales growth as Executive Vice President of Sales of his five-year tenure.

Along with the recently announced acquisition of Nexenta, a market leader in Software Defined Storage for telco 5G and IoT, Ellery’s appointment points to the broader strategy of expanding growth and leadership in AI and Multi-Cloud data management across DDN’s three divisions (DDN® Storage, Tintri® by DDN and Nexenta® by DDN).  

'I am very excited for the amazing opportunity of ‘re-joining’ the Tintri family under the DDN product family and expanding Tintri’s market leadership position in virtualized environments for the enterprise market,' said Tom Ellery, general manager and senior vice president of field operations, Tintri by DDN. 'Tintri’s product portfolio continues to deliver market-leading levels of simplicity, predictability and resource analytics that has garnered incredible customer feedback with almost a ‘cult-like’ following over the last several years. I look forward to the opportunity to lead the organization as we build on top of the impressive foundation that the team has laid out.'
