CloudBolt appoints Patrick Malaperiman new EMEA VP sales

Cloudy CloudBolt Software has appointed Patrick Malaperiman as the new Vice President of Sales for EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa). Based out of London, he will be responsible for helping CloudBolt grow its presence and scale its customer base across the EMEA region.

With nearly 30 percent of CloudBolt’s customer base outside the US, the strategic hire of Malaperiman comes on the heels of the company’s successful 2019. This includes the opening of new locations in London and Boston, 50 percent year-over-year growth in customer orders, and being named to the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 list.

Malaperiman brings an extensive background of over 25 years in the software industry, including 15 years leading international sales, sales engineering, and channel teams. Malaperiman most recently served as Senior Vice President of Sales, EMEA at NetBrain Technologies, and Vice President of International Sales at Cherwell Software. Prior to Cherwell, Malaperiman served in senior EMEA sales roles during two successful IPOs at ServiceNow and Twilio.

CloudBolt chief executive officer Brian Kelly said: “Malaperiman has a wealth of deep expertise in building and scaling international sales and go-to-market teams and driving accelerated customer growth—and at two of the most successful cloud companies in recent years, no less,” said As we cement CloudBolt as the enterprise cloud management leader in the EMEA, I look forward to Malaperiman’s  sales leadership in helping to open new doors for us across the European continent.”

Malaperiman said: “I look forward to building new relationships with customers and partners across EMEA as we accelerate growth and adoption of CloudBolt’s enterprise cloud management platform beyond North America.”

CloudBolt’s expansion into Europe comes at a time when EMEA overall cloud spend is expected to reach $57.7 billion in 2020, up from $50 billion in 2019, according to Gartner.  Enterprise software is the fastest growing market segment in EMEA, opening further opportunity for the enterprise cloud management leader to expand in the region.
