Data security company tabs new head of development

Commvault, a Tinton Falls-based data security company, announced Wednesday the appointment of Owen Taraniuk to head of worldwide partnerships and market development.

Taraniuk will be in charge of the company’s global “go-to-market” strategy and indirect partnerships.

“I am excited to be leading this initiative to greatly extend Commvault’s global footprint … and look forward to driving new opportunities for growth and revenue with our current and potential partners,” Taraniuk said. “As we continue to deliver customers the industry’s best data protection offerings for on-premises, hybrid and multicloud environments, we are also deepening and expanding our partner relationships, accelerating Commvault’s growth and helping our partners expand their opportunities for revenue, as well.”
Taraniuk has spent the past 25 years in the technology solutions industry, including stints in senior leadership roles at Kofax Inc., Open Text Corp., Groupe Inova, ABS Group and Dun & Bradstreet Software. Most recently, he was vice president of Asia Pacific and Japan for EMC2 Corp.’s Enterprise Content Division. He held the same title when he joined Commvault in October 2015.
“Owen’s appointment signals a strategic shift towards being partner-led, with a focus on increasing our investment in alliance and partner relationships,” said Ron Miiller, senior vice president of worldwide sales for Commvault. “His impeccable track record of success in aligning internal and external teams and his go-to-market thought leadership naturally positions him to drive and elevate our worldwide partner and alliance program to new heights.”
