Cloud management company Druva Inc. has announced the appointment of Robert Brower as Senior Vice President of Worldwide Partners and Alliances.

The company said Brower plays a key role in building new partnerships, expanding the company’s partner network and identifying new opportunities to drive future growth.

He will be transitioning to this role after joining Druva in the summer of 2020 as the Vice President of Strategic Operations and Chief of Staff, where he was responsible for leading companywide strategic projects and product operations.

Prior to joining Druva, Brower worked for Tealium, a customer data platform solution, building its technical alliances program.

He previously spent more than 13 years at Commvault, where he led various organisations, including customer experience, professional services, and the customer education organisation.

While at Commvault, he helped the company secure global partnerships with NetApp, HPE, and Cisco.

“Channel partners, and the expertise they bring, are important resources for organisations struggling to meet changing needs and accelerating digital transformation initiatives,” said Chris White, Chief Revenue Officer, Druva.

“Data protection is an ideal use case for the cloud, and our channel program is only accelerating as partners expand their cloud expertise and range of cloud-based offerings.

“Robert’s extensive track record, impressive relationships built over years with partners, and decade-plus of experience in the industry make him the perfect leader to help our organisation build on this momentum and achieve new heights.

From 2016-2019, Brower served as the Global VP of Products and Operations and Chief of Staff.

“I have found the best partner programs are built on shared corporate values, a joint desire to help others succeed, and a mutual, laser-like focus on delivering the best overall experience for the end user,” said Brower.

“I’m excited to take on this role at a company that not only embraces channel partners as a critical part of its success, but approaches wider routes with a channel-first mindset.

“Working with Druva’s dedicated team and our continuously growing number of outstanding channel partners, I’m confident we will help even more businesses thrive in the cloud era.”
