London, UK - 7 November 2022 - NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP), a global cloud-led, data-centric software company, today announced that Piero Gallucci has joined as its Vice President and General Manager, UK & Ireland.

Gallucci joins NetApp from his role as Vice President, VMware Tanzu EMEA. Gallucci will lead UK and Ireland employees, while focusing on NetApp’s transformation as a hybrid cloud leader in the market. As part of NetApp’s EMEA & LATAM leadership team, Gallucci will report to Giovanna Sangiorgi, Senior Vice President for EMEA & LATAM.

NetApp has driven tremendous innovation in the cloud space over the past few years, including the acquisition of several technology businesses which specialise in technical and business optimisation of cloud services, such as Spot by NetApp, CloudCheckr, Fylamynt and Instaclustr. At the same time, the company has continued to expand its market-defining position as a key partner and supplier in data centre modernisation, helping customers build powerful solutions for artificial intelligence, smart factory, core business applications, and containerisation.

The UK market, which NetApp entered 25 years ago, is now the largest Cloud market in Europe. Gallucci will build on this foundation to drive the company's UK transformation to establish NetApp as a leading provider of multi-cloud solutions, hybrid cloud storage, and cloud data services.

“NetApp is one of the technology leaders currently redefining cloud and I'm delighted to join at this important moment in the company’s transformation journey,” said Piero Gallucci, Vice President and General Manager, UK and Ireland at NetApp. “I look forward to supporting the digital transformation of NetApp's UK and Irish customers, taking full advantage of the hybrid multi cloud opportunities available. I am also delighted to join at a time when we’ve just opened our international headquarters in Cork. I look forward to visiting soon.”

“I am delighted to welcome Piero to NetApp UK&I and am confident that his knowledge and experience will make him a great addition to the culture and strength of the EMEA/LATAM Leadership Team,” said Giovanna Sangiorgi, SVP of EMEA and LATAM at NetApp. “Piero brings a wealth of experience including accelerating cloud-led growth and with him on board driving the next growth phase of NetApp and leading the NetApp’s GTM in UK and Ireland, I’m confident our customers and our partners have a great supporter helping them in their development and transformation”.
