“This is an incredibly exciting time to join SoftNAS to lead marketing and I’m honored to become part of the leadership team. We believe that data is the critical component enterprises have to control and manage in a world undergoing massive digital transformation. To do this requires a cloud data platform, like SoftNAS Cloud® offers with data storage, data security, data acceleration and data integration capabilities,” said John-Marc Clark, Vice President, Marketing, SoftNAS. “Rapid growth at SoftNAS, technology innovation and market forces are all converging favorably. As such, we are building on our position as the #1 Cloud NAS solution provider to pioneer multi-cloud data control and management solutions that help customers with a range of additional business solutions including SaaS migration to the cloud, cloud backup and data archival, file-server consolidation, and on-premises to cloud migration of applications, data and storage infrastructure. We see 2018 as an inflection point year where cloud adoption becomes mainstream.”

Having held numerous leadership positions, Clark has built a career cultivating brands for leading companies in the Silicon Valley including IDC, Citrix, and Qumranet (acquired by Red Hat). He was formerly with GIS mapping software pioneer Strategic Mapping, Inc. which was acquired by ESRI.

Clark is responsible for SoftNAS corporate, product, digital and alliance marketing strategy and execution. In prior roles, he led analyst relations, market research, competitive intelligence, emerging product marketing, and global sales programs. At Citrix, Clark was responsible for the Fujitsu alliance team, growing that partnership into the company’s largest out of 9,000+ partners.

While at Citrix Clark played a pivotal role as the company grew from $200 million to over $3 billion in annual revenues. Clark holds a bachelor’s degree in American History from Georgetown University and has a master’s degree in International Relations from La Universidad de Belgrano in Buenos Aires, Argentina as well as a master’s degree in International Business Administration specializing in International Marketing from The University of Miami.

SoftNAS has moved its headquarters to the Park Laureate Building, a 9-story, Class A, boutique office building located in the premier Memorial Villages. One highlight of the location is a tribute sculpture display honoring its best-known tenant, President George H.W. Bush.
