SAN FRANCISCO, Apr. 16, 2020 -- D2iQ, the leading provider of enterprise-grade cloud platforms that power smarter Day 2 operations, today announced it has appointed Louise Bulman as vice president of sales in EMEA as part of its growth strategy in the region. Bulman will use her extensive experience of commercial growth to build upon D2iQ’s expanding list of customers, as well as developing the channel ecosystem.
“Louise has an impressive history of growing start-up and corporate technology businesses in general management, sales, and marketing,” said William Freiberg, co-chief executive officer. “Her vast experience as a leader and her knowledge of the industry will prove invaluable in creating brand awareness and expanding our customer relationships throughout the EMEA region.”
Bulman joins D2iQ from Big Switch Networks, a cloud and data centre networking company, acquired by Arista Networks in February 2020, where she served as vice president of EMEA, drove exponential revenue growth, expanded the channel, and increased the networking business’ brand awareness in the 12 months prior to its acquisition. Before joining Big Switch Networks, Bulman held a number of senior leadership roles in cyber security businesses, both established and start-up, including McAfee, Vormetric (acquired by eThales Security) and Forescout Technologies, where she was instrumental in driving profitability and growth across EMEA. Bulman has also held senior corporate roles at Gartner and Nokia Siemens Networks.
