StrataCloud Adds Enterprise Depth to Leadership Team
Steve Cundill (Channels) and Heather Foster (Marketing) Join Recently Appointed Chief Exec Brian Cohen in Bid to Overhaul the Way Large Companies Manage IT Infrastructure
Atlanta, Georgia – September 11, 2014 – StrataCloud continued its aggressive transformation today with the appointments of Steve Cundill to vice president of channel sales and alliances and Heather Foster to vice president of marketing. Cundill and Foster, along with recently appointed CEO Brian Cohen, are tasked with growing the company’s share of the multi-billion dollar unified infrastructure management market.
Cundill joins StrataCloud from Softchoice, a billion-dollar-plus hardware and software reseller and integrator, where he was most recently vice president of sales for the US East Region. Cundill’s teams helped clients design and implement solutions from vendors including Cisco, NetApp, HP, IBM and VMware. StrataCloud, which to-date has sold primarily direct to customers, is aggressively developing channel partnerships to increase scale and geographical footprint.
Foster was previously vice president of marketing at ControlScan, a leader in payment security and compliance, where she helped define and execute marketing strategies, initiatives and operational plans to help drive corporate revenue and profitability objectives. Foster spearheaded company and product branding and messaging, demand generation, public relations and thought leadership, and significantly increased company exposure.
