Data protection and software-defined storage company Veritas Technologies has appointed  25-year technology veteran John Abel as senior vice-president and chief information officer.

With experience enabling growth and driving business value at global organisations utilising cloud technologies, Abel replaces Todd Hauschildt, who is retiring.

Abel joins Veritas from Ellie Mae, the cloud-based platform provider for the mortgage finance industry, where he also served as senior vice-president and chief information officer.

Prior to Ellie Mae, Abel spent eight years at Hitachi Data Systems as senior vice-president of information technology, where he consolidated multiple enterprise resource planning systems and led a transformational customer relationship management strategy enabling significant growth.

Before joining Hitachi Data Systems, Abel held an IT leadership role at Symantec shortly after it had acquired Veritas.

His early career included working with JDSU and KPMG Consulting, serving global clients in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and North America.  

“John’s experience in the industry coupled with his strength for business partnership and building high performing teams makes him an ideal choice to drive our information technology strategy,” said Greg Hughes, chief executive, Veritas.
