Early in his career, Sanjay realized that - although he could write code - he was better at helping people use it. That's why, as a customer-driven CEO, he is determined to deliver Commvault solutions that impact the business and lives of our customers. Since joining the company, he propelled Commvault forward by further innovating its industry-recognized portfolio; introducing a new SaaS offering; and completing the Company's first major acquisition. Sanjay joined Commvault from the software maker Puppet, where he served as CEO for more than two years. Prior to that, he spent two decades in senior leadership roles at Microsoft, VMware and EMC Corp.
As a "global citizen," Sanjay's move to Commvault's New Jersey headquarters is a return to his roots. He has family in the New Jersey area and is on the board of directors at Drew University, where he studied computer science and math. He earned his MBA from the University of Pittsburgh. A father of two adult daughters, he recognizes and supports the importance of diversity in the workplace. He is also a "ridiculously passionate" fan of cricket - which is a source of good-natured teasing from his daughters.
