Former Dell EMC, Zerto, and Semperis Sales Leader to Drive Go-To-Market Initiatives Through Company’s Next Phase of Growth
Boston, Massachusetts, April 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HYCU, Inc., the world’s fastest-growing multi-cloud data protection as a service company, today announced that Coley Burke joined to lead the global sales organization and drive go-to-market programs to accommodate scale and growth for continued worldwide expansion. Burke joins HYCU on the heels of the recent introduction of R-Cloud, the world’s first developer-led data protection platform to address the underserved needs of SaaS application users for enterprise-class data protection, and after the company closed 2022 with more than 3,600 customers and a Series B funding round that brings the total raised to date to $140M. Burke will report to HYCU Founder and CEO Simon Taylor.
“The ongoing fight against ransomware and the ever-increasing need for data protection regardless of platform or application in use, has never been greater,” said Coley Burke. “HYCU is at a pivotal moment in time, solving the challenges that legacy backup solutions cannot address while changing the game for companies and partners that need cloud-native, cost-effective and efficient SaaS backup where few solutions exist today. I am excited to join HYCU to drive and lead sales through the company’s next phase of hypergrowth.”
As Chief Revenue Officer, Burke will be responsible for driving HYCU’s global go-to-market strategy and accelerating growth and scale to accommodate customer and partner interest. Burke brings more than 30 year’s experience as a results-driven executive to lead sales and business development efforts. Prior to HYCU, Burke was CRO at Semperis where he increased demand for identity driven cyber resilience to offset the growing rise of cybersecurity risks to enterprises globally. Before Semperis, Burke was CRO at Zerto, successfully leading go-to-market for the global IT resilience company prior to the acquisition by HPE. Burke has held sales and go-to-market positions at EMC, Kashya, IBM, Quantum, and Arrow Electronics and has extensive background in software, data protection, infrastructure, storage, and BCDR products and solutions. Throughout his career, Burke has led successful market strategy and revenue growth for many of the industry’s leading product portfolios.
