London, UK — Aug 7, 2017
Code42, the leader in cloud-based endpoint data protection and recovery, today announces the appointment of Richard Agnew as vice president for the company's operations in the UK, Ireland and Northern Europe. The appointment is a strategic one for Code42, and forms a fundamental part of its regional growth strategy.
In his new role, Agnew will look to dramatically accelerate growth of new customer acquisition in the region, and lead Code42 into new sectors and markets. In addition, working closely with the company's Minneapolis headquarters and international sales team, particular focus will be placed on putting customers first while rapidly building Code42's enterprise footprint.
Commenting on the appointment, Mike Robbins, senior vice president of worldwide sales at Code42 said, "Richard's knowledge of the data security and recovery market, and years of experience in the region, will be invaluable as Code42 continues to grow its presence globally. We look forward to having him on the team."
Agnew comments on his new position, "It is time to take a new approach to data protection in the UK security market. I believe Code42 to be the company that will disrupt the market and point the way forward. We have a portfolio of innovative, proven and reliable solutions that — in the context of an increasingly complex threat landscape — enterprises demand. The focus on providing organizations the ability to not only protect but also recover from disasters, such as ransomware, will be what sets Code42 apart."
Agnew brings a wealth of sales and management experience to Code42, gained through a long and successful career spent leading regional teams within internationally recognized brands such as Veeam, NetApp, and Dell.
Outside of work, Richard is an avid and regular cyclist and competes in a number of local organized cycling events. Agnew says, "Apart from the obvious fitness benefits, cycling is a wonderful way to get a few hours to clear the mind and think through challenges and problems."
