SOUTHERN AFRICA – Nutanix, a cloud computing software company that sells infrastructure appliances and software-defined storage, has appointed Dom Poloniecki as General Manager for its Sub-Saharan Africa and Western Europe region.

Mr. Poloniecki joins Nutanix after a 17-year career at IBM, where he built extensive business leadership experience in enterprise technology. For the last six years he was responsible for leading and transforming the company’s software and software-as-a-services businesses in the UK and Ireland, latterly as Vice President of Cloud Software.

Commenting on Mr. Poloniecki’s appointment, Sammy Zoghlami, Senior Vice President of Sales for the Europe, Middle East & Africa region, said:  “I’m absolutely delighted to have Dom join our leadership team in EMEA,”

“His extensive experience in cloud services and enterprise sales not only fits the Nutanix market position perfectly, but also our future ambitions.

“Most importantly, Dom is recognised as a leader with a strong reputation for developing the people working for him.”

Mr Poloniecki began his professional career at Morgan Stanley as an analyst in the company’s M&A practice, and gained his first experience of technology sales in the financial services sector, selling scalable systems and virtualisation software.

He holds a BSc in Mathematics from the University of Bristol in the UK. He lives in London and is married with three daughters.

He supports a number of charities, having swam the Solent for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, competed in a triathlon for the Thinking of Oscar appeal, raised funds for the Cure Parkinson’s Trust, and recently qualified as a maths tutor with The Access Project, an organisation which works with students from disadvantaged backgrounds to help them gain access to top universities.
