Gareth Russell Takes on APAC CTO Role at Commvault


Commvault has appointed Gareth Russell to its newly created role of Field Chief Technology Officer, Security for Asia Pacific, which the company says reflects its commitment to extending its deep technical expertise in data security and cyber resilience to more customers and partners in the region

A key priority for Russell in his new role is to work with organisations to strengthen their cyber resilience strategy and help them safeguard against this increasing frequency and sophistication of cyber threats.

“I am excited to bring my experience to Commvault, especially at a time when cyber risks are intensifying in our region,” he said. “My focus will be on enhancing cyber resilience strategies, including helping organisations across APAC strengthen their recovery capabilities. These days, when it comes to cyberattacks, it’s not a matter of if but when, and I look forward to working with enterprises to advance their cyber readiness and preparedness.”

Commvault calls Russell a seasoned cybersecurity veteran with a proven track record of helping organisations and governments across Asia-Pacific define and manage their cyber risk postures. He also has extensive experience implementing, transforming, and operating capabilities, including embedding cyber security into organisational culture
