LAWRENCE, MA – June 8, 2016 – Seven10, the automated data management company, announced today the addition of Chris Taddeo to the company’s executive team as senior director, global accounts for the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) business development and partnership. Mr. Taddeo will play a crucial role in the expansion and refinement of Seven10’s sales strategy, the growing HPE partnership, and the overall vision of growth.
Mr. Taddeo’s appointment is in direct response to Seven10’s skyrocketing customer growth, marketplace dynamics, and the industry’s demand for Storfirst, Seven10’s automated data migration and management software. To remain closely tied to HPE, Seven10 is opening a second East Coast office in New York, where Mr. Taddeo will divide his time between the Seven10 office and the HPE New York office.
Maloney’s appointment is just one of several new sales hires Seven10 has made, and will continue to make, to service the growing demand for Storfirst, Seven10’s automated data migration and management software.
Mr. Taddeo brings to Seven10 over 15 years Information Technology experience. He began his career at Storagetek, where he gained a deep understanding of the data storage industry. Mr. Taddeo then managed the Northeast team of storage specialists for Sun Microsystems. From there he became the vice president of sales for Unitiv, a national technology reseller. While at Unitiv, Mr. Taddeo broadened his background by representing multiple hardware and software companies. Mr. Taddeo’s most recent role was as director for the East region for Mission Critical Solutions at HPE. During his tenure at HPE, Mr. Taddeo was responsible for the Mission Critical Portfolio, which included high end x86 systems as well as HPE Converged Systems for SAP HANA.
"During this exciting period of growth for the company, we are thrilled to welcome Chris to the Seven10 executive team," said Terry Flynn, executive vice president of worldwide sales, Seven10 Storage Software. "Chris brings a wealth of knowledge in the data storage and software industry as well as within HPE business development. I had the pleasure of working alongside Chris during my years at HPE.
