BOSTON – November 10, 2021 – Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of cloud file storage, today announced the appointment of Thomas Stanley to its Board of Directors. A 30-year tech industry veteran, Thomas brings to the Board proven strategic insight for driving sales and revenue while Nasuni capitalizes on record demand for its cloud file storage platform.
Thomas is Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) for cybersecurity leader Tanium, where he oversees revenue operations including worldwide and partner sales, marketing, alliances, customer success and sales operations. Previously, he was NetApp’s SVP and general manager, across North America, South America and the U.S. public sector.

He has also been recognized as an influential Channel Chief by CRN and held executive posts at SGI and IBM.
“I am excited to join Nasuni’s Board of Directors at this unique point in the company’s journey,” said Thomas. “I’ve been watching Nasuni for a while, and what they have accomplished is extraordinary, especially being able to transform traditional file storage systems to a new cloud service model. The company is enabling greater agility, security and cost efficiency, which is critical for competing. I look forward to helping them sustain and build upon their ongoing success.”
“We are thrilled to add Thomas to our Board of Directors as he brings extensive expertise and a long track record of success in areas that are highly relevant to our business,” said Paul Flanagan, Chief Executive Officer of Nasuni. “He will play a key role in helping guide Nasuni in the next phase of our growth as we continue to disrupt the file storage and data management market with a cloud approach.”
