Commvault creates new ‘International’ region led by Marco Fanizzi

Commvault has announced the merging of the APJ and EMEA organisations into one organisation led by – SVP and GM, Commvault International – Marco Fanizzi, who has significantly expanded the business since his appointment as EMEA leader 2 years ago.

The new International region will comprise of more than 150 national markets and will continue to deliver world class support to all customers and partners consistently across all of those countries. All regions will continue to be represented directly to regional management level as before.




“As we begin our new financial year as a leader in a very competitive industry, we must remain focused on prioritising our investments on the ability to scale and accelerate our growth globally,” said Commvault CRO, Riccardo Di Blasio. “While geo-political and economic events still challenge the global economy, we can be assured that data management, protection and utilisation will only become more business critical for every organisation anywhere in the world.”




The clear threat of ransomware attacks is obviously recognised as a US national security priority with the recent Cyber Incident Reporting for Critical Infrastructure Act and increasingly a priority for every national government. With these challenges being faced by every country in the world, Commvault is building flexibility to retain the consistent, repeatable growth it has seen from the APJ and EMEA regions.




“Our success as this integrated, International region will be built on celebrating, and equally representing the incredible diversity within our organisation, but based on the clear fact that each of our teams already share more similarities than differences – especially in terms of proven business success and best practices,” said Marco Fanizzi SVP and GM, Commvault International.
