Experienced Leader to Drive Strategic Growth and Expansion of Zerto within HPE
BOSTON, MA – March 7, 2023 – Zerto, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, has today announced the appointment of Matt Boris as its new head of worldwide Go-to-Market. Boris, who previously led Zerto sales in the Americas and Asia, will now be responsible for driving the company’s overall GTM strategy around the globe.
The appointment marks a significant investment by HPE in Zerto with a goal to double the size of the business in the next 24 months. Under Boris’ leadership, Zerto will focus on maximizing growth opportunities by expanding into new markets and increasing its presence in EMEA and APAC, including Australia, Hong Kong, and Malaysia.
As part of his broader role, Boris will also focus on unifying the company’s GTM strategy with Manager Service Providers (MSP) and channel partners. One of the key drivers of growth will be HPE GreenLake, its edge-to-cloud platform, where Zerto will play a critical role. The company is also expanding its reach into GSI through strategic alliances with Deloitte, HCL Tech, TCS, and Wipro.
Boris, who has worked in senior roles at Zerto for more than six years, is a strong advocate of the company’s internal promotion culture and the growth opportunities presented by the expanded role.
“I am honored to be given the opportunity to lead our worldwide efforts, and I look forward to working with the Zerto team to drive growth and expand our reach into new markets,” said Boris.

We are excited for this next chapter under his guidance and look forward to the growth and success that lies ahead for the business.”
In addition, Zerto has appointed Ben Jenkins as sales director of Americas East and Sasha Acosta as sales director of Americas West. Along with Boris, the two roles are critical for the Zerto Americas business as it scales to meet customer demands in 2023 and beyond.
