Commvault CFO Brian Carolan to resign

Tinton Falls-based Commvault on Tuesday said Chief Financial Officer Brian Carolan will resign from his position, effective July 1.

Carolan will be succeeded by Gary Merrill, current chief of business operations.

Carolan and Merrill, who are longtime colleagues, will work closely together to ensure a seamless transition.

“Gary’s appointment as our new CFO reflects the deep bench of talent at Commvault,” said Sanjay Mirchandani, Commvault’s CEO and president. “He has held several senior roles at Commvault, including chief accounting officer and, most recently, as chief of business operations, Gary has been leading our transformation initiatives to build a modernized business platform.”

“The innovations and improvements we made over the past few years have paved the way for future subscription and (Software-as-a-Service) growth,” Merrill said. “I am excited to leverage my experience in this new role.”

Carolan joined the company in 2001 and, throughout his successful tenure, he has helped Commvault navigate its public offering and expand its global presence and growth strategies.

“I am so proud of what we have accomplished together throughout my 21 years at Commvault,” Carolan said. “It gives me great pleasure to hand the CFO reins to Gary, and I have great confidence in his ability to lead the team.”

“Brian’s counsel to me, the leadership team and the board has been invaluable. We all wish him well in his future endeavors,” Mirchandani said.
