Rick has been at the forefront of technology throughout his career. He joins Veeam after eight years at Qlik, where he led the global marketing organisation and was part of the leadership team that transformed Qlik into an end-to-end data and analytics SaaS company.

Veeam is the trusted solution protecting 450,000 organisations all over the world.

I’m looking forward to working with a world-class organisation and an extremely talented and innovative marketing team.”
