Vivek Anand has recently taken over as the Country Sales Manager for CommVault. He says, "I was drawn to CommVault by their technology which is widely accepted by the 'techie' community as being easy to use and manage while still being robust." In his new role, Anand is excited about the challenge of building up the name and business for the organization in India. "For me, the opportunity to start up the Indian sales operations and to bring the potential freedom, ease, and savings that this software offers to Indian businesses was too good to pass up," he adds.

His three mantras for success in life are, "People can be their own success makers", "The harder you work, the luckier you get", and "Doing things right, not just doing the right things". He advises budding technology professionals to strive hard to learn to be knowledgeable and have conviction about the technology that they bring to the customers as technology changes so quickly. "You must be prepared to challenge yourself in many different situations, be prepared to take a chance and lead by example," he says.

In leisure he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, traveling, trekking, reading, and playing sports as it helps him unwind.
