DataCore Software, the industry’s premier provider of storage virtualization software, today announced the appointment of Linda Haury as vice president of worldwide marketing. A 25-year high-tech industry veteran with proven success in the development and implementation of international marketing programs, Haury comes to DataCore from her most recent position as senior director of global marketing business partner, planning and operations at Citrix Systems. She brings deep expertise in virtualization and storage technologies and will help drive continued growth for DataCore’s next-generation storage virtualization software solution, SANsymphony- V. Haury will report directly to DataCore Software president and CEO, George Teixeira.

“As vice president of worldwide marketing, Linda will steer all strategic, product, and outbound marketing activities, expanding DataCore’s market visibility and brand recognition across the globe,” commented Teixeira. “We’ll immediately put her experiences directing channel programs and marketing operations for high-growth companies to work here.”

“DataCore is positioned to become a powerhouse in one of the industry’s fastest growing software segments,” said Haury. “Coming out of the desktop and server virtualization space, I can tell you firsthand how essential they are to virtualization projects. Needless to say, I’m eager to help pilot this starship.”

While at Citrix Systems, Haury held a variety of senior-level marketing positions throughout her 14-year tenure. She was most recently senior director of global marketing business partner, planning and operations and served as the primary interface between Citrix’s corporate and field marketing organizations. In that role, Haury provided overall operational direction and business strategy to the marketing organizations in the areas of policies and planning, process, analysis, and measurement. Prior to Citrix Systems, Haury spent much of her career in the storage industry serving as one of the founders of SyDos, a division of SyQuest Technology, where she was vice president of marketing. She also served in that same role for Rodime Systems, a global disk-drive storage provider.

Haury holds a B.A degree from Boston College.
