July 2023 by Marc Jacob
Cubbit announced the appointment of two data storage world veterans to its executive team: Richard Czech as Chief Revenue Officer, and Enrico Signoretti as VP Product & Partnerships.
The expansion of the Cubbit leadership team reinforces the company’s goals around international growth and the realisation of strategic market opportunities in cloud and edge computing. This news follows the announcement on 27th June around the launch of Cubbit’s international advisory board, consisting of initial members: Nicolas Ott, Alec Ross, and Mikko Suonenlahti.
Richard Czech has more than 30 years of experience as an entrepreneur and key executive in the storage industry. For the past six years, he was VP EMEA of Sales at Wasabi Technologies, a global leader in the object storage industry, where he led the European go-to-market strategy from the company’s journey from startup to unicorn (growing the partner network from zero to thousands, and selling hundreds of PB of storage), when it was valued at over $1 billion. Prior to Wasabi, Richard held key positions in the technology and data storage industry, including as the European Sales Executive for DataXion, CEO of Lightsand Communications, VP of Technology, EMEA at ADIC, and founder/president of InterBackup, a US-based backup software company.
In his Cubbit role as Chief Revenue Officer, Czech’s unique experience will lend itself to driving business growth by taking a holistic approach in overseeing the entire revenue cycle (with the alignment of teams, operations and systems) around the customer experience in the go-to market process.
Enrico Signoretti has over 30 years of experience in the IT industry, having held various roles including IT manager, consultant, head of product strategy, IT analyst, and advisor. He is an internationally renowned visionary author, blogger, and speaker on next-generation technologies. Over the past four years, Enrico has kept his finger on the pulse of the evolving storage industry as the Head of Research Product Strategy at GigaOm. He has worked closely and built relationships with top visionaries, CTOs, and IT decision makers worldwide. Enrico has also contributed to leading global online sites (with over 40 million readers) for enterprise technology news.
Signoretti will be drawing upon his vast experience to contribute towards the technical vision, initiatives and strategy of Cubbit’s DS3 solution and the overall business goals, as well as expanding the company’s network of strategic partners, fostering relationships with leading industry players.
Since the announcement of the Next Generation Cloud Pioneers programme in April 2022, Cubbit now serves more than 140+ companies, enterprises, and institutions, including Aeroporto Marconi di Bologna, Amadori, Bonfiglioli, CNP Vita (Unicredit Group), Granarolo, Marcheno Municipality, and SCM Group.
