Former Hewlett Packard Executive Joins FalconStor as Vice President of Worldwide Technical Support

FalconStor Software Inc., a provider of disk-based data protection solutions, announced that it has hired former Hewlett-Packard executive Donna Williams as vice president of worldwide technical support and Abbas Meghjee, formerly of Symantec, as vice president of North American sales operations. Williams will play a critical leadership role in FalconStor’s initiative to deliver technical excellence, high quality product delivery and customer satisfaction. Meghjee in his new position will focus on implementing highly efficient and cost-effective sales processes that enhance the productivity of FalconStor’s sales team and channel partners.

Prior to joining FalconStor, Williams was the director of software support delivery throughout the Americas for Hewlett-Packard. She was responsible for providing the foundation and premier support for Hewlett-Packard’s business technology optimization (BTO) software suite for the United States, Canada and Latin America. At HP, Williams managed a large software support organization with revenue of $600 million and gross margin results of 89 percent while maintaining complete customer satisfaction. As FalconStor’s VP of tech support, Williams intends to design, build and manage a profitable global technical support organization that consistently delivers the highest quality customer service. Williams has a bachelor’s degree in computer science from La Salle University and a master’s degree from the University of Baltimore.

“The traditional model of backup and storage management doesn’t meet the needs of today’s data center; which is why FalconStor has designed its data protection solutions to optimize IT resources, drive efficiency into IT operations and deliver hard dollars to the bottom line,” said Jim Weber, vice president of operations and chief financial officer at FalconStor. “Donna will be instrumental in making sure FalconStor customers get the most value from our products, enjoy an unparalleled deployment and support experience and continue to invest in FalconStor solutions in the future.”

Meghjee has more than 12 years of IT sales and management experience, building sales teams and sales generation processes in the Americas and across Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Most recently at Symantec, Meghjee was director of sales for inside sales organizations covering the United Kingdom and emerging markets. Prior to Symantec, Meghjee managed sales teams for Veritas. At FalconStor, Meghjee will oversee all FalconStor sales operations in North America. Meghjee has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado and a master’s degree from Bard College in New York.

    I’m a recovering alcoholic, ten years sober this June. I almost wrote “recovered alcoholic,” because it’s a problem I’ve long since put to bed in every practical sense. But anyone who’s dealt with addiction knows that that part of your brain never goes away. You just learn to tell the difference between that insidious voice in your head and your actual internal monologue, and you get better at telling the other guy to shut up. Read Now

    My first security trade show was in 2021. At the time, I was awed by the sheer magnitude of the event and the spectacle of products on display. But this was the first major trade show coming out of the pandemic, and the only commentary I heard was how low the attendance was.
