Storage vendor Seagate Technology has appointed Dave Mosley as president, Operations and Technology, while Rocky Pimentel will be the president of Global Markets and Customers.
Dave Mosley (pix below), who most recently served as executive vice president of Operations and R&D, will be responsible for Seagate’s global hard drive, heads and media manufacturing operations, as well as global research and development.
Rocky Pimentel (pix below), who most recently served as executive vice president and chief sales and marketing officer, will be responsible for Seagate’s global customer engagement, sales, sales operations, product line management, marketing and retail activities.
Both will continue to report to Seagate CEO Steve Luczo.
Luczo said its traditional OEM and distribution customers are addressing important opportunities with new technology offerings and go-to-market capabilities. The storage company is 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.
