Fusion-io appoints new A/NZ regional sales director

Based in Sydney, Yasser Elgammal will lead the regions sales drive

Fusion-io has appointed Yasser Elgammal as its new A/NZ regional sales head.

Elgammal will be based in Sydney, but oversee the entire Australia and New Zealand region, pushing out Fusion-io's range of flash based storage products.

“I’m thrilled to join Fusion-io during such an exciting time for the company,” he said.

“There is an enormous, untapped opportunity in the ANZ region and I look forward to working with our partners to enlighten businesses on the benefits of Fusion-io technology. Companies large and small demand solutions that unlock business potential, and with our flash technology we enable customers to do just that.”

Elgammal has more than 18 years experience in the technology sector. He was director of sales and marketing at Presilient for three years, and has also held sales and marketing leadership positions at VMware and APC by Schneider Electric.

Elgammal will report to Fusion-io's APJ vice president, Charlie Foo.

“We see Australia as an extremely important market for us as a company,” said Foo.

“We are so pleased to have someone of Yasser’s calibre join our growing team to engage with a market that consists of highly sophisticated end-users.”

Elgammal's role follows the recent appointment of national partner manager, Jason Finlayson who joined Fusion-io in April.
