OneCloud Software, a provider of public cloud as a ‘secure enterprise’ data center extension through its patented Automated Cloud Engine (ACE), has announced that Cheryle Cushion has joined the company as Vice President (VP) of Marketing. Cushion brings over 20 years of experience in developing corporate marketing strategies and executing integrated marketing programs.
Cheryle Cushion has held various marketing leadership roles in several successful young companies including Infinio Systems, Raptor Systems, Interliant, Seahorse BioScience (recently purchased by Agilent Technologies) and most notably EqualLogic which was purchased by Dell in 2008 for $1.4 billion where she then led the Global Storage Marketing team contributing to its growth of over $750 million in just 3 years.
“The disaster recovery space is an area that is somewhat misunderstood, but perfectly accessible to every business, and I’m excited to join a company that is making DR in the cloud a reality,” said Cheryle Cushion. “I’m looking forward to combining my experience with the company’s innovation as we look to help companies think about – and deploy – disaster recovery.”
Cheryle Cushion earned a BS in business administration (marketing concentration) from the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
“As the market makes the shift to hybrid cloud-based infrastructures – and OneCloud Software leads the way with accessible and affordable disaster recovery – we needed someone who could jump into the marketing position and lead right away,” said Marc Crespi, CEO and president of OneCloud. “Cheryle’s previous experience and success with integrated marketing programs and lead generation are the right combination for our team; we look forward to the expertise she has already begun – and will continue to bring – to OneCloud as we seek to change the industry’s perception of cloud-based disaster recovery.”
