Commvault, a recognized global enterprise software leader in the management of data for cloud and on premises environments, today announced the appointment of Anthony Faustini as vice president of sales for the Americas. In this role, Faustini will work closely with sales leadership to drive Commvault's go-to-market (GTM) strategy and revenue growth in the Americas, with and through the company's global partners.

Faustini brings to Commvault more than 20 years of experience in GTM strategy, sales leadership and execution in both partner-led and direct sales models. His diverse background and experience working closely with product teams ideally position him for this role. Throughout his career, he has built dynamic workplace cultures that have empowered, excited and motivated his teams to thrive.

Faustini most recently served as a global sales leader responsible for the Data Center Networking and Tetration portfolio at Cisco, where annual bookings exceeded $4 billion. Prior to this position, Faustini ran several early-stage incubation sales teams within Cisco that grew new product introductions from $0 to more than $1 billion.  

"We are thrilled to have Anthony join our team during this exciting time at the company," said Ron Miiller, senior vice president, worldwide sales. "He has a track record of delivering exceptional results across highly-diverse and aggressive sales models and we expect he'll have great success here given our market leadership and our focus on leveraging our partner ecosystem."

In his early career at Cisco, Faustini served as a consulting systems engineer and senior product manager responsible for the Nexus 7000.  

"Commvault has had tremendous success bringing innovative products to market that enable its partners and customers to simplify, streamline and scale [its] business for success," said Faustini. "I look forward to working with our leadership team to build on Commvault's partner-centric strategy in Americas while expanding our market presence and influence -- increasing our overall value proposition and driving revenue growth."

In between his long tenures at Cisco, Anthony was also the vice president, global financial services sales at Big Switch Networks. In this role, he oversaw the company's global financial operations, pricing structure, sales pipeline and GTM model for its software-defined networking products.
