Grant Aitken and Ian Clarke join Pivot3 to target Canada
Pivot3, a provider of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions for the modern datacenter, has hired Grant Aitken and Ian Clarke to expand Pivot3’s products in the Canadian marketplace.
Aitken has “spent a majority of his career guiding major technology vendors through the process of expanding into Canada by developing market-entry and channel delivery strategies”, and joins Pivot3 as the country manager for Canada.
“The Canadian market is ripe for an HCI solution, and I’m convinced that Pivot3’s product flexibility, ability to run multiple workloads and customer-centric approach is exactly what Canadian enterprises need,” said Aitken.
Clarke joins Pivot3 as regional sales director, having spent his career “focused on bringing early-stage technology companies into Canada with strategies to increase brand awareness and build sustainable revenue”. Clarke has previously held positions with both HCI and flash storage vendors.
“Many regional businesses are discovering this competitive edge, and I expect to see continued adoption of HCI in the region as we bring Pivot3’s dynamic portfolio of solutions into the Canadian market,” he said.
“Pivot3 is seeing tremendous growth and additional opportunity in Canada,” said Jamie Lerner, chief revenue officer of Pivot3. “Ian and Grant bring impressive industry experience, a track record of success and are already making an impact in their new roles. We’re happy to have them on board.”
