“He has a proven track record of consistently exceeding sales targets throughout his career. As a senior executive – and dare I say veteran of the industry– Sandeep has built lasting relationships with ISVs, system integrators, OEMs, independent consultants and regulators across India. All of this, we believe, will help him execute on our business objectives for India in the years to come,” McLagan added.
Veeam develops backup, disaster recovery and data management software for virtual, physical and cloud-based workloads. The company has also pioneered a new market of Availability for the Always-On Enterprise. 
Sandeep has worked with Dell EMC, Symantec, SAS, and Sonata software in senior leadership and business roles. He commenced his career as regional manager- ERP at Sonata Software. 
Commenting on his new role at Veeam, Sandeep said, “There is tremendous disruption in business worldwide and IT is under pressure to not only support business but to enable innovation and new revenue streams. Traditional IT firms have the scale but lack innovation and agility to meet customers’ needs. As a young, agile and fast growing software company, Veeam offered a fantastic opportunity to work on differentiated technology that can help meet the availability needs of virtualized data centres”.

 

“Sandeep as a senior executive– and dare I say veteran of the industry- has built lasting relationships with ISVs, system integrators, OEMs, independent consultants and regulators across India.”

Veeam’s ever expanding set of feature-rich functionality continues to provide opportunities for our channel partners in India to deliver World class availability solutions to their customers, as per McLagan. 
“The very recent announcement of Veeam Availability Suite (VAS) 9.5 Update 3 (U3), Veeam’s support for VMware Cloud on AWS opens the door for our partners to deliver both migration and comprehensive disaster recovery solutions leveraging private, public and hybrid clouds. The flexibility afforded by VMware Cloud on AWS enables partners to deliver these solutions while balancing cost against their customer’s service level requirements.  Enhanced centralised management of our Agent technologies further rounds out the Enterprise capabilities on which our partners can deliver availability solutions,” adds McLagan. 
“Veeam’s excellent leadership team has an incredibly ambitious vision to expand into data management and to elevate the conversations to the C-suite. I look forward to building the operations in India to become a significant revenue contributor to the APJ region and Veeam globally. To me, the sky’s the limit for Veeam and our people in India,” says Sandeep.
