It’s been a busy year at Qumulo:  the data storage and data informatics company announced a new CEO in November, and capped $100 million in funding last summer.

Now the company has made another change with the addition of tech vet Jay Wampold as the company’s VP of marketing. Wampold comes to the position after a year as the director of product marketing for Amazon Web Services, and had previously served as Chef’s VP of marketing for five years. 

He has also left his mark on companies like Isilon Systems, where he led marketing and communications for four years, and RealNetworks, where he worked as director of communications in the company’s early years.

“Joining Qumulo was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I couldn’t pass up,” Wampold said in a press release. “This is an insanely innovative company that is going to change the world of storage as we know it. Based on the growth of the company and calibre of the executive team, Qumulo is heading into a significant market opportunity, and I am beyond thrilled to be a part of such a forward thinking company as it matures.”
