@VMDoug is Promoted to VP, Product Strategy, and Chief Evangelist


Veeam Software, innovative provider of VMware data protection, disaster recovery and VMware management solutions for virtual datacenter environments, has promoted Doug Hazelman to Vice President, Product Strategy, and Chief Evangelist.

He quickly built a prestigious worldwide team of accredited individuals and became Director of the Global Systems Engineering Group. When Hazelman was promoted to Senior Director, Product Strategy, he became Veeam’s spokesperson, which has expanded to Chief Evangelist. Hazelman will continue to present on behalf of Veeam at industry conferences and consult with customers, partners and industry analysts to ensure Veeam products meet or exceed every market need.

“Doug’s new position fits perfectly with our long-term strategy of becoming the #1 virtualization data protection and management provider,” said Ratmir Timashev, President and CEO of Veeam Software. “His extensive involvement in the virtualization community has helped build a large, enthusiastic following for Veeam, giving us the opportunity to listen carefully to what our customers and the industry want and need. This enables us to create the best products possible.”

In addition to establishing the Veeam blog, which contains news and updates about Veeam management solutions and virtualization technologies, Hazelman started @Veeam and @VMDoug during the very early days of Twitter. Hazelman is also a VMware vExpert 2011.

Prior to joining Veeam, Hazelman was an IT infrastructure consultant with Bennett Adelson. Earlier in his career he was the Director of Product Management for Migration Solutions at Quest Software. He was with Aelita Software in various technical and product management roles for more than five years before it was acquired by Quest in 2004.
