Kaminario Names Ken Dougherty VP of Sales for North America

Dougherty Brings Nearly 20 Years of IT Sales, Management Experience to Accelerate Global Expansion

NEWTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 10, 2015) - Kaminario, the leading all-flash storage array provider for midrange enterprises, today announced the appointment of Ken Dougherty as vice president of sales for North America. Dougherty brings nearly two decades of IT sales and management experience with emerging and leading storage technology companies to head Kaminario's regional sales team covering the United States, Mexico and Canada.

In the first half of 2015, Kaminario year-on-year sales grew 400%. Across the board, customers reported high-performing, cost efficient and non-disruptive K2 all-flash array architecture integrations. In response to this customer traction and to further accelerate its ability to capitalize on significant market opportunity, the company added enterprise technology sales veteran Dougherty.

"Ken has a proven history of inspiring the best work from the teams he's managed, in addition to maintaining a central focus on customer service," said Kaminario CEO Dani Golan. "Kaminario is growing rapidly in North America and with Ken's leadership, we expect our sales and customer success in a crucial market to significantly expand."

Prior to joining Kaminario, Dougherty gained valuable sales experience with Hewlett-Packard. He spent the past two years at HP as vice president of sales for Eastern and Canadian regions, leading the HP Big Data business unit. During that time, he exceeded annual sales goals both years and was instrumental in making North America the leading region in sales for HP Big Data. Dougherty also served as an area director for four years, where he was responsible for numerous aspects of HP storage sales in the Eastern region. In that role, Dougherty's team exceeded its goal of delivering double digit growth in each of the four years. In 2011, Dougherty received the "Worldwide Sales Leader of the Year Award" for HP's Enterprise Group. Prior to HP, he served as the eastern vice president of sales at Compellent Technologies where his team delivered triple-digit year-over-year growth, exceeded annual targets and was recognized as one of the fastest growing regions in North America.

"Kaminario maintains the most disruptive storage solution on the market due to its scalability and cost efficiency, evidenced by its recently announced performance in Gartner's Magic Quadrant," said Dougherty. "While Kaminario currently serves an illustrious record of distinguished customers throughout the United States, we now have an opportunity to further expand our enterprise efforts to additional areas in North America."
