virtualDCS appoints new channel account executive

IT backup, recovery and data management expert, Jeniya Klimova, who has spent the past five years working at global software company, Veeam, has joined the team at cloud computing and disaster recovery specialists, virtualDCS, as a channel account executive.

Her appointment follows Leeds based virtualDCS recently realigning its operations to focus on providing infrastructure, backup and disaster recovery services, with UK data sovereignty, to IT partners that want to offer cloud-based backup services to their clients and end-users.

virtualDCS CloudCover services feature best of breed solutions from Veeam, which is the world leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver modern data protection.

In her new role, Jeniya will primarily be responsible for liaising with partner companies and working with them to identify the best and most suitable products and solutions for their clients, as well as providing them with her ongoing expertise, support and assistance. She will also work alongside them to help identify new revenue and growth opportunities.

Jeniya said: “After five years at Veeam, where I developed a thorough understanding of the company’s products and benefits, I always saw the next stage of my career in a role supporting those that resell the product and promote its benefits to end-users.

“In recent years virtualDCS has emerged as one of Veeam’s leading service providers and resellers in the UK. The relationship between the two companies, as well as the virtualDCS team’s approach and enhancements to the technology, makes this career move the perfect opportunity to continue supporting UK partners on the ground, while continuing to work closely with Veeam.

“I’m now looking forward to working with our channel partners to ensure they are maximising the benefits of Veeam and helping them to add further value to clients that want to utilise the best technology to safeguard their IT systems.”

Richard May, managing director at virtualDCS, said: “Our success is based on our ability to build lasting and productive relationships, based on mutual successes, with our IT channel partners. Welcoming Jeniya to the team will significantly reinforce the value that we offer to IT suppliers who want to offer Veeam’s products to their clients and end users.

“Her time with Veeam means she has superb technical skills and knows the product portfolio inside out, so she can offer unparalleled levels of expert and accurate advice. Crucially, she also has both an established global network and close contacts within the organisation, which will be hugely beneficial as we also continue to build our relationship with Veeam.”

virtualDCS recently became the first UK owned channel first Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) to be named as a platinum service provider by Veeam.

This followed virtualDCS also becoming the first UK-based VCSP partner to achieve the Reseller Ready competency from Veeam last year. This gives virtualDCS an official seal of approval to resell Veeam’s entire product portfolio including BaaS (Backup as a Service), Veeam Backup for Office 365, DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service), off-site backup and MSP (Managed Service Provider) backup.
