Zerto, an industry leader in cloud data management and protection, announced promotions of Avi Raichel (pictured) to the role of COO and Deepak Verma as VP, Product Management. The two senior leadership positions are key to the continued success of the business and product strategy roadmap.
Avi Raichel has served as Zerto’s Chief Information Officer (CIO) for the past four years. The selection of Raichel for this role marks the first time Zerto has appointed a COO. As COO, he will also be responsible for transforming Zerto’s strategy into execution by working with teams across the company to build collaborative cross-functional plans, processes, and tools that can scale and grow as needed. He will continue to serve as CIO, leading the IT, operations, sales, and cloud teams.
Verma takes leadership of the entire product management team. Having joined Zerto nearly two years ago from Commvault, he has made a major impact in his previous role as Director of Product Strategy. Verma was responsible for leading Zerto’s data protection and development strategies, while bringing to market Zerto for Kubernetes and leading multiple key other projects and assisting in managing the team.

Built for enterprise scale, Zerto’s software-only platform uses continuous data protection to converge disaster recovery, backup, and data mobility and eliminate the risks and complexity of modernization and cloud adoption.
