New Infinidat CEO Bullinger, who brings over 30 years’ experience in the enterprise storage space, most recently served as senior vice-president and general manager of the Data Centre Business Unit at Western Digital.
Bullinger will look to lead Infinidat through the next phase of its growth, building on the strength of its solutions and customer relationships, as well as expanding go-to-market capabilities and scale.

Throughout 2020, Infinidat achieved four consecutive quarters of growth, with profitable earnings, progress that new CEO Bullinger will look to build on from 2021.
