Zadara Storage appoints Oksana Braune as sales director for Central and Eastern Europe
Zadara Storage, the award-winning provider of enterprise-class storage-as-a-service (STaaS) today announced the appointment of Oksana Braune to the newly created position of sales director, Central and Eastern Europe. Oksana, who brings more than 20 years of experience in sales and business development within the IT industry, will be responsible for expanding the company's customer base and strengthening its footprint in what is a key growth market for Zadara. Oksana joins Zadara from Panzura and will report directly to Dani Naor, vice president, international sales.

"We are delighted to welcome Oksana Braune to the Zadara family," said Dani Naor, vice president international sales at Zadara Storage. "Oksana's track record speaks for itself. Her extensive management experience as well as proven results in developing and executing effective go-to-market strategies made her the perfect candidate to capitalize on the growing demand for our OpEx-based storage solutions in Central and Eastern Europe. This region is a key market for Zadara and we are excited to further expand our market penetration under Oksana's leadership."

Before her move to Zadara, Oksana Braune was regional sales manager Central Europe at Panzura where she was instrumental in establishing the go-to-market strategy in the region including driving demand-generation and creating a channel network.

"Enterprises are in a dramatic transition from rigid CapEx storage to agile OpEx storage solutions and are demanding more flexibility, scalability and autonomy from their vendor partners", said Oksana Braune, sales director Central and Eastern Europe at Zadara Storage. "Zadara's value proposition of a common storage-as-a-service platform which can be deployed at any location, supporting any data type and connecting to any protocol is highly compelling. I am looking forward to working closely with the channel to explain how we are able to help enterprises and service providers focus on managing their businesses, rather than managing their storage".

In her two-year tenure as senior storage sales manager Germany at Oracle, Oksana Braune successfully built and executed an effective sales strategy to develop a strong sales pipeline for the disk storage business and drove the performance of the sales team to achieve its aggressive targets. Oksana's long history in the storage industry began at LSI Engenio where she served for over ten years as sales and business development manager for EMEA with responsibility for a team of 18 employees throughout Europe.
