Nutanix announced that it is appointing Faiz Shakir as managing director for its India business effective Monday, 15th November.
Shakir joined the company in February 2016 as sales director responsible for Southern India and Sri Lanka and worked most recently as the Enterprise & Commercial Sales director covering the whole of India. Prior to Nutanix, he worked at Dell EMC and NewWave Computing in India in sales leadership roles. His track record for rapidly growing business makes him ideally placed to redefine Nutanix’s business in India and drive the enterprise cloud leader’s efforts as it expands its focus to India’s larger enterprises.
“Faiz has had a highly successful tenure during his time with us. We are confident his broad internal network and camaraderie with his team in Nutanix, his knowledge of the channel partner ecosystem in India, and his customer relationships position him well to lead our business in the country,” said Neville Vincent, Nutanix VP for ASEAN, ANZ and India.
