Data protection and software-defined storage company Veritas Technologies has appointed  25-year technology veteran John Abel as senior vice-president and chief information officer.

With experience enabling growth and driving business value at global organisations utilising cloud technologies, Abel replaces Todd Hauschildt, who is retiring.

Abel joins Veritas from Ellie Mae, the cloud-based platform provider for the mortgage finance industry, where he also served as senior vice-president and chief information officer.

Prior to Ellie Mae, Abel spent eight years at Hitachi Data Systems as senior vice-president of information technology, where he consolidated multiple enterprise resource planning systems and led a transformational customer relationship management strategy enabling significant growth.
