Nutanix, an enterprise cloud computing company, has appointed Sammy Zoghlami as senior vice-president of sales for Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Zoghlami succeeds Chris Kaddaras, who has been appointed senior VP of sales for the Americas.

Nutanix is a cloud computing software company that sells hyper-converged infrastructure appliances and software-defined storage. Nutanix was founded in the US in 2009 by Dheeraj Pandey, Mohit Aron and Ajeet Singh.

Zoghlam was sales lead for the company's operations in Southern Europe. He started his career with Nutanix in 2013 as country manager in France, taking on responsibility for southern Europe in 2015. In a statement, Nutanix chairman, founder and CEO Dheeraj Pandey says Zoghlam has played an integral part in the growth of the company.

“Nutanix has grown over the last 10 years. Sammy has played an integral part of that journey in Europe, building effective, high-performance teams with recognisably peerless energy and passion for Nutanix. With his notable speed for both adaptation and execution, I am delighted to appoint Sammy to this role, and am certain all of his stakeholders will agree, too," he notes.

"I am absolutely thrilled to be given the opportunity to build on my experience overseeing markets as diverse as France, Iberia, Italy, Switzerland, and North and West Africa, and add territories of both proven viability and exciting new potential for Nutanix,” says Zoghlam.

“I can't wait to get started in supporting our customers, partners and employees in their development, as we consolidate our clear leadership in providing for the emerging multi-cloud world."

Zoghlam holds a BA in Business Administration from the University of Hull in the United Kingdom.

He will be supported in the role by Andrew Brinded as chief of staff, EMEA, overseeing operational matters within the region.
