I’m excited to announce the names of two senior leaders that recently joined EMC Isilon.
Barbara Gordon joined our team on September 9th as our Chief Operating Officer and will have responsibility over a wide set of operational functions. Barbara’s extensive industry experience spans multiple sales, services and business functions. She has spent the last 10 years at Microsoft leading large teams and most recently led Microsoft’s 9,500 person global Customer Service and Support (CSS) organization. Prior to her time at Microsoft, Barbara held multiple senior-level executive positions including leading worldwide sales teams for twenty years at companies such as AT&T, Digital Equipment and Sun Microsystems.
Phil Bullinger joined our team today as our Senior Vice President (SVP) of Engineering and Operations. Phil recently worked at Oracle as their SVP of Storage where he was responsible for product planning and engineering for their SAN/NAS storage systems business. Prior to joining Oracle, Phil was the Executive Vice President and General Manager for the Engenio Storage Group, a division of LSI Corporation. His impressive 25-year career in storage spans a number of engineering and management roles from silicon to system-level products. Phil holds five patents in the fields of storage technology and integrated circuit design and has extensive insight into storage industry technologies and trends.
Both Phil and Barbara will play key roles in helping us drive future growth.
