“Geoff Stedman made the switch to Quantum earlier this year to take up the newly created position of senior VP, StorNext Solutions. Melanie Dayasena-Lowe met with Stedman to find out how his experience in start-ups and the storage business has helped him to steer the company’s goals.

This March, Geoff Stedman joined Quantum as senior VP, StorNext Solutions to focus on expanding the company’s leadership in scale-out storage solutions across current and new vertical markets. With a solid background in storage, having worked for the likes of Tintri, Harmonic and Omneon, Stedman is well placed to push ahead with the development and growth of Quantum’s StorNext portfolio.”

“With Quantum being in the storage market, I’m able to draw a lot from my experience at Omneon, which is also storage but a different part of the storage market. Omneon focuses more on playout servers and nearline NAS storage. At Quantum it’s focused much more on production with our SAN technology and archive. I’m definitely leveraging some of that past experience.”
