Scality, an industry leader in petabyte-scale storage, announced today that Antoine Fauvel has joined the company as Senior Director of European Sales, reporting directly to Scality’s CEO, Jerome Lecat.

Prior to joining Scality, Fauvel held sales management positions with both start-ups and large corporations, including Autodesk, Computer Associates, Versadata and most recently with EMC, where for 8 years he was in charge of enterprise accounts.
2013 has been a remarkable year for Scality in which the company has established its leadership in the object storage market. The enthusiastic reception of Scality’s RING product has led to 400% sales growth year over year. In July, the company announced a Series C funding round for $22 million. The addition of Fauvel to Scality’s management team marks another step for the company.
“I am truly impressed by Scality’s technical excellence, product portfolio and remarkable team,” said Antoine Fauvel, VP European Sales, Scality. “Prior to joining I’ve consistently heard from industry insiders how much they like Scality’s storage technology. It is clear that the Scality object storage solution is the right solution at exactly the right time.”
"We are very pleased to have Antoine join us as we continue to work closely with our existing customers as we expand into new verticals and territories in Europe," stated Jérôme Lecat, CEO, Scality. "2014 and beyond promises to be key growth years for the company. Object storage technology has reached a maturity point where it makes sense to invest heavily in sales and marketing to reach the “early majority”. That’s exactly what we are doing, and Antoine brings a wealth of industry experience to grow the team in Europe and reach a new level in sales activity.”
