Zerto has announced the appointments of Coley Burke as chief revenue officer and Chris Nelson as vice president of Americas sales. Combined, the roles will focus on leading Zerto’s global sales team and building on another year of sustained growth.
Taking the primary leadership role of the sales team, Burke will capitalize on Zerto’s ongoing success and further build a team that embodies the core spirit, culture and values of the organization. Nelson will move into Burke’s vacated role and continue the focus on driving consistent and predictable growth and helping scale the adoption of the Zerto software platform in all vertical and customer segments.
Burke has decades of experience in the disaster recovery space. In his nearly three years at Zerto, he has played a pivotal role in shaping Zerto’s culture, proving he understands what it takes to propel sales of Zerto’s solution to grow the bottom line of the business. He will be instrumental in an aggressive growth strategy with a focus on acquiring new customers, growing enterprise and existing accounts, and will support Zerto’s partner Go-To-Market strategy to increase strategic partner revenue and deepen relationships across the company’s partner ecosystem. His goal is to help customers transform the way they protect their businesses.
Nelson will move into an expanded role responsible for all customer facing functions in the Americas. Nelson brings more than 20 years of enterprise-class sales experience solving key customer issues. He brings operational excellence to the sales organization and the ability to solve business challenges by matching the Zerto platform to those critical customer needs.
Both appointments are being made internally and underline Zerto’s commitment and culture of developing and promoting talent from its own ranks.
