He possesses a proven ability to build repeatable and scalable revenue functions that led to revenue growth of $100M+, as well as a history of building strategic partnerships that deliver leverage and scale. Add to that Pritesh’s keen focus on sales processes and metrics, and it made him the ideal fit.”

Upadhyay’s appointment marks the latest addition to CloudBolt’s revamped leadership team, focused on seizing untapped market opportunities in the rapidly evolving hybrid cloud/multi-cloud landscape and driving innovation.
