MarketsandMarkets predicts that the hybrid cloud market will grow from $33.28 billion two years ago to $91.74 billion by 2021, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of nearly 23 percent during the forecast period. Looking at a regional analysis, North America is projected to hold the largest hybrid market share while APAC is the fastest-growing region. The key reasons for this high growth rate is the increasing utilization of data centers and cloud services, and the trend of large enterprises combining private and public cloud resources to create hybrid cloud architectures to enhance the path toward digital transformation.
Just recently, Unitas Global, a Los Angeles-based hybrid cloud solution provider to multinational enterprises, appointed Ian Gillott as its new Chief Operations Officer and named Bob Pollan as its Chief Financial Officer. As Unitas Global’s COO, Gillott will streamline and improve operational efficiencies throughout the organization, and scale global operations to keep pace with the growing needs of the organization’s enterprise clients and partners. Pollan becomes responsible for providing leadership for the company’s strategic financial initiatives. The leadership moves come at a significant time as Unitas Global pursues geographic expansion of its services, and invests in new solutions and technologies to meet the demands of a rapidly expanding base of global enterprise customers.
Gillott began his career as a Commissioned Officer in the Australian Army. He has nearly two decades of experience in senior executive positions across a wide range of industries across APAC, EMEA and North America, serving companies in operational IT management, software development, managed services, hosted private cloud operations, and cybersecurity
Pollan has held executive roles within major public companies, investment companies, and technology companies such as Universal Access, Mobility Technologies, and Procurian. As Unitas Global’s new CFO, he brings extensive financial management experience with over 25 years of operating in global technology organizations as an entrepreneur, operating executive, and institutional investor. While Unitas Global’s COO, Pollan was instrumental in driving the company’s meteoric revenue growth at a 167 percent CAGR from September 2014 to September 2017.
“As the enterprise cloud market continues to evolve at an accelerated pace, Unitas Global is entering a new and exciting phase of growth, pursuing geographic expansion, investing in the development of new solutions and technology, and enhancing its world-class services,” stated Gillott. “I am happy to join this dynamic organization where I will leverage my experience with diverse markets as Unitas continues to unify cloud solutions on a global scale and better serve the business demands of the enterprise.”
“I am extremely proud of the growth and financial success we have achieved at Unitas Global, and I look forward to continuing to drive those aspects of the organization as its new Chief Financial Officer,” commented Pollan. “As the cloud services market continues to expand, we are presented with an incredible opportunity to provide innovative hybrid cloud solutions to a growing base of international enterprise customers. We are excited to rise to that challenge.”
“We are excited to both welcome Ian Gillott to our executive leadership team as Chief Operations Officer and to appoint COO, Bob Pollan, to the position of Chief Financial Officer,” remarked Patrick Shutt, CEO of Unitas Global. “Ian’s track record of leadership and his ability to quickly analyze complex operational environments will be instrumental in driving continued scale and client satisfaction. Bob has an incredibly strong background in finance and strategy, and we feel confident that in his new role he will lead improvements in our overall financial performance as well as valuation.”
