Quantum appoints new global channel boss

Quantum has announced the appointment of James Mundle as its new global channel chief as the storage provider firm looks to continue expanding its channel partner program.

Mundle will be responsible for Quantum’s global partner strategy, programmes and execution and will be the company’s executive advocate for its worldwide channel partners.

Quantum chief revenue officer Elizabeth King said: “James brings a wealth of experience to Quantum, including success developing unique solutions bundles for partners, enhanced partner compensation models, partner contribution analytics, and innovative approaches to channel programs that have had a real impact on the market. He will play a pivotal role as we continue to enhance the Quantum Alliance Program and extend our leadership delivering compelling and innovative solutions that address the challenges of explosive video and unstructured data growth.”

Mundle most recently held the position of vice president of Worldwide Channel Programs for Veeam and has previously served as vice president of Worldwide Channel Sales for Seagate’s Cloud Systems and Solutions business.

Quantum recently spruced up its Alliance Program’s deal registration application, which has been redesigned to reduce the time channel partners need to request Quantum Deal Registration.

Mundle said: “Quantum is a very channel-centric company with a robust channel ecosystem, and our partners expect us to be predictable, transparent and engaging. Investing more in the partners who are committed and want to grow with Quantum will be one of my top priorities. I am deeply passionate about the channel and am excited to be the lead advocate for our channel partners in this newly-created role at Quantum.”
