MILPITAS, Calif. — Feb. 25, 2020 — MemVerge, the inventor of Memory-Converged Infrastructure (MCI), today announced that Andrew Degnan has joined the company as its first vice president of Sales. Degnan brings more than 15 years of technology sales experience to MemVerge having held previous roles at Diamanti, Pure Storage, BMC Software, NetApp and Sun Microsystems. At MemVerge, Degnan will manage the sales team and lead customer expansion to accelerate the adoption of Storage Class Memory (SCM) and MCI in the enterprise data center.
“I’m excited about MemVerge’s technology and what the company is accomplishing by bringing storage class memory and a breakthrough software architecture to the market,” said Degnan. “I’ve seen first hand the customer benefits and business value of transitioning off spinning media to solid state storage. The ground-breaking work that Charles Fan and the team have done for the transition to persistent memory with rich data services creates an opportunity for unprecedented customer business value and success.”
Degnan comes to MemVerge from Diamanti, a hybrid cloud platform for Kubernetes, where he served as vice president of Sales. He joined Diamanti just before the company’s product was GA and built a $10M+ successful customer install base in the first year. Prior to Diamanti, Degnan was one of Pure Storage’s early sales hires. At Pure Storage, Andrew helped convert more than 50 customers, $35M+ in revenue and was instrumental in implementing and advancing Pure Storage’s go-to-market sales strategies.
