Seagate Chairman and CEO, Steve Luzzo, announced the appointment of Dave Mosley, the company’s former Executive Vice President of Operations and R&D to the position of President Global Markets and Customers, and Rocky Pimentel as President, Global Markets. Pimentel was most recently Seagate’s Executive Vice President and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer.
Luzzo said the appointments would “further Seagate’s effectiveness in delivering its core product technology portfolio, customer engagement and operational excellence.”
“These appointments reflect the significant opportunities in front of Seagate.
“We are also actively engaging with many new customers directly, especially in the cloud services market and with start-up businesses that are also pursuing innovative technical approaches for their storage infrastructures and lack significant go-to-market capabilities.
“By elevating Dave and Rocky to lead our core product technology, operations and customer engagement, Seagate is even better positioned for continued operational excellence and to further our ability to capitalize on our growing opportunities in the storage marketplace.”
Luzzo said the “new alignment” of Seagate’s leadership would allow him to “focus more on the longer term strategic opportunities for our company, and to increase my efforts around accelerating our mobile and cloud technology strategies.”
