Qumulo, a pioneer of hybrid cloud storage, has hired Molly Presley to lead its worldwide product marketing. Presley brings deep storage experience to Qumulo, where she will focus on fueling the company’s go-to-market strategy as it continues to grow on a global scale.
One of Seattle’s fastest growing private companies, Qumulo announced $93 million in Series D funding earlier this year. The company has more than 200 employees and serves hundreds of enterprise customers.
Molly Presley most recently served as the vice president of product marketing, product management and global marketing at Quantum Corporation, where she led the marketing of Quantum’s scale-out storage offering across a range of verticals and use cases.
“As Qumulo continues to execute on our aggressive growth strategy and rapid evolution, Molly’s outstanding experience in the storage industry and ability to bring products to life in the market will be critical to the company’s success,” said Peter Zaballos, CMO at Qumulo. “We’re thrilled to bring Molly’s talent on board and, with her addition to the team, look forward to expanding our explosive influence as the leader in hybrid cloud storage.”
