Promotions to allow CEO to focus on longer-term strategy

Storage vendor, Seagate, has filled two strategic executive positions through the internal promotions of Dave Mosley and Rocky Pimentel.

Mosley, who most recently worked as operations and research and development (R&D) executive vice-president, will assume the role of operations and technology president. He is tasked with Seagate’s global hard drive, heads, and media manufacturing operations, as well as global R&D.

Pimentel is moving from his post as executive vice-president and chief sales and marketing officer to president of global markets and customers, where is will look after the vendor’s global customer engagement, sales operations, product line management, marketing, and retail activities.

Both will continue to report to Seagate chairman and chief executive officer (CEO), Steve Luczo.

“Be elevating Dave and Rocky to lead our core product technology, operations and customer engagement, Seagate is even better positioned for continued operational excellence and to further our ability to capitalise on our growing opportunities in the storage marketplace,” Luczo said.

“Additionally, this new alignment of our leadership allows me to focus more on the longer-term strategic opportunities for our company, and increase my efforts around accelerating our mobile and Cloud technology strategies.”

Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers.
