Veritas Technologies has made two new appointments with Barbara Spicek signing on as vice president of global channels and alliances, and David Noy returning to take on the role as vice president of product management.

Spicek will be responsible for the storage vendor's global base of channel and alliance partners, focusing on delivering programs to help partners differentiate in the market and drive growth within its 360 data management portfolio.

Before joining Veritas, Spicek was the vice president of worldwide channel sales for Gigamon and has also worked at Nexsan Storage Solutions.

Veritas vice president of worldwide field operations, Scott Genereux, said Spicek provides a breadth of experience in building teams, developing programs and driving channel growth.

Meanwhile, Noy first worked for Symantec back in 2007, where he was in charge of the Veritas Storage Foundation product line.

In his new position, he will be responsible for managing the Veritas software-defined storage (SDS) and appliances product portfolios, as well as appliances support, manufacturing and supply-chain functions.

Noy has also previously worked for Dell EMC Isilon and NetApp.

"With more than 15 years working with leading data companies, David brings a deep understanding of the software industry and will be crucial in driving the next phase of our growth as we continue to strengthen our company in the multi-cloud data management,” Veritas executive vice president and chief product officer, Mike Palmer, said.

The global appointments follow the hiring of Luke McLean , who joined as new director of consulting services in the Pacific in August.
