CHATSWORTH, Calif. – Feb. 9, 2021 – DDN®, the global leader in artificial intelligence (AI) and multicloud data management solutions, today announced Amy Medeiros has been named Senior Vice President, Corporate Marketing and Inside Sales. In this role, Medeiros will be responsible for both DDN and Tintri strategic and creative marketing and sales initiatives, with a focus on increasing the profitability of channel partners and enhancing their value to customers.
Medeiros joined Tintri, the Enterprise division of DDN, in March 2020 and made an immediate impact with tangible results.

She will expand on the programs she developed to propel DDN’s strategic “Intelligent Infrastructure for a Changing World” vision forward, and further align and integrate the DDN and Tintri brands. As a result, channel partners can offer an even wider range of AI-driven workloads for both At Scale and Enterprise environments, opening additional avenues to customers and revenue.
