21 Jan 2019
Data management solutions specialist, Gabsten Technologies (Gabsten), welcomes Hemant Harie as their new Managing Director. Harie will be moving up from the position of Operations Manager, a role he has held for over three years, after commencing his career at Gabsten in 2010.
Harie will be responsible for overseeing the entire operational and business functions of the company, maintaining and augmenting the company’s existing legacy of customer support and commitment.
Comments Harie, “We have cemented our reputation as a leading data management consulting company, offering consulting, technical support, managed services and training to our clients. I will be focusing on expanding the company’s market share through additional services and solutions that are complementary to our current offering. We will leverage our specialised skills in data management, solutions implementation and support to strengthen our ties with partners and resellers, both within and outside of the Commvault ecosystem.”
Harie has garnered over fifteen years’ experience in the IT industry, starting out on the technical side before moving over to management with a more business centric focus. With a degree in Computer Science and Telecommunications and an array of ICT certifications in areas like Server Administration and Data Warehousing garnered over the years, Harie’s combination of technical and business experience is well suited to the role of Managing Director.
Harie adds, “I’ve been with Gabsten for over eight years, touching virtually every division from support, to training and finally operations management. My experience with Gabsten, the technology we specialise in and the customers we work with, has paved the way for me to confidently assume the challenges of my new role, one which I look forward to tackling with relish.”
Gabsten has gone from strength to strength, recently winning the prestigious Services Partner of the Year award from Commvault, a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, data management and the cloud. Harie intends to take this success even further, combining a focus on people, training, and an entrenched Commvault knowledge to emerge as the leading provider in the data management space, on a global scale.
On the attraction of the position, Harie explains, “Gabsten has always had – and still has – the perfect mix of great people, superlative skills and excellent customer service. The opportunity to oversee this process and help build on our success that this winning combination drives, is exciting.”
Harie assures staff, partners and customers alike that Gabsten will continue to deliver services at the level of excellence that they are accustomed to, with a commitment to improving on it and elevating the Gabsten brand to new heights.
