Red Hat sales chief tapped as Acronis CEO

Pinchev to push growth

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Backup company Acronis has changed its CEO: Jason Donahue has been replaced by Alex Pinchev, who has been an Acronis board member since November 2010. Before that he had been at Red Hat for nine years, most recently as president for global sales, services and field marketing.

Privately-owned Acronis reckons Pinchev brings storage management and virtualisation market experience plus his leadership of worldwide teams to the CEO position and that this will help maximise Acronis' growth.

Jason Donahue became Acronis's CEO in 2008 and has had three years in the role.

Acronis board chairman Ilya Zubarev explained the move: “Since Alex joined our Board in 2010, we have benefited from his extensive experience, sharp business acumen and vision for the future development of the virtual and cloud markets. We believe that Alex’s strong leadership will accelerate Acronis’ journey to be a global leader in backup and recovery solutions not only for physical servers, but for virtual environments, and into the cloud.”

There's a theme running through this Acronis announcement that it has not performed as well as it should. The company's statement offers no thanks to Donahue for his five years' service and accomplishments, and mentions no future position for him; he is not joining the Acronis board for example. ®
