Cohesity, a leader in AI-powered data management and data security, today announced the appointment of Fraser Hutchison as Cohesity’s Area Vice President (AVP) of Sales for UK, Benelux, Ireland, Sweden, Norway and Finland (Northern EMEA).

Hutchison brings over 22 years of experience in information technology and leadership and will lead Cohesity’s sales and customer engagement efforts in this dynamic region in EMEA. He and his team will focus on helping customers strengthen their cyber resilience by adopting Cohesity’s AI-powered modern data security and management solutions. 

Hutchison worked for leading IT organisations in different sales and leadership roles and helped customers to solve their critical challenges around cloud, security, networking, and digital workspace transformation strategy. Most recently, Hutchison led the EMEA Global Account teams across the UK, Germany, and France at HashiCorp, where he provided large customers with tools and products to provision, secure, run, and connect cloud-computing infrastructure. Before that, Hutchison held various sales leadership and business operations roles at VMware.

As a business leader, Hutchison is passionate about Northern Europe being a diverse region with economically strong, innovative, and cloud-savvy countries. Hutchison wants to help organisations in this region to address their critical challenges with AI-driven data management and -security. 

“I want to establish Northern Europe as a strong and growing region in EMEA. To achieve this, I want to build a strong team that clearly focuses on enterprise customers. These organisations need to solve serious security challenges while driving new digitisation projects and managing their costs simultaneously,” said Fraser Hutchison, AVP of Northern EMEA at Cohesity. “Cohesity has a fantastic AI driven solution package that will allow these companies to strengthen their security posture and to reduce their costs at the same time.”

“Organisations in Northern Europe were the first ones to adopt new concepts like the cloud. The hunger for modern technologies like AI is strong in this region. At the same time, these organisations need to focus on how they protect, secure, and recover their data to succeed in today’s threat landscape with nation-sponsored actors,” said Olivier Savornin, Group VP of EMEA at Cohesity. “Modern data management, recovery, and security capabilities are crucial for every organisation because they underpin cyber resilience and business continuity. I am delighted to welcome Fraser Hutchison to our team in EMEA to help all organisations in Northern Europe to solve their data management and protection challenges.”
