Record Growth for Intronis Amid Channel Chief Search
Intronis, the online backup provider, continues to generate record monthly performance and will continue to grow its partner program. That’s the message from founder and CEO Sam Gutmann, amid a search for a new channel chief to replace outgoing VP Eric Webster.
During a phone call earlier today, Gutmann confirmed a report that Webster had left Intronis because of a new career opportunity at another company. Gutmann wished Webster well, and said Intronis is seeking a new channel chief to further grow the company’s partner program.
Officially, Webster had been VP of marketing and sales at Intronis, which included responsibility for the Intronis partner program. Looking forward, Gutmann said Intronis may have two people take over Webster’s responsibilities, due to the company’s continued growth.
Intronis is privately held, so it’s difficult to pin down the company’s exact financial status. But Gutmann made it clear that the Intronis partner program has delivered record results for the company in recent months. Throughout the conversation, Gutmann reiterated his commitment to the Intronis partner program, which includes a white label option that allows VARs and MSPs to re-brand Intronis online backup as their own.
Webster’s departure came at a tricky time. Webster had been scheduled to attend the Autotask Community Live conference this week; the Miami-based event attracted roughly 500 VARs and MSPs — and companies such as VaultLogix and Zenith Infotech’s BDR team were on hand to pitch storage management to attendees.
