San Diego-based Overland Storage (Nasdaq: OVRL), a provider of data management and protection solutions, announced the appointment of Vic Mahadevan to its board of directors, effective Nov. 13.

Mahadevan was previously chief strategy officer at NetApp, and has more than 25 years of senior level strategic planning and marketing experience. He assumes the board seat vacated by the resignation of Shmuel Shottan.

As chief strategy officer at NetApp, Mahadevan was responsible for long-term strategy and M&A for the company. This responsibility included developing go-to-market strategies with numerous global system integrators, forging partnerships, and initiating growth strategies to diversify global revenue. He also previously served as CEO of Deeya Energy, NeoEdge Networks and MaXXan Systems (now CipherMax), as well as in executive positions at iVita and at LSI Corp., where he served as vice president of marketing and oversaw all aspects of product management, outbound marketing, and business alliances.

"Vic's extensive knowledge and experience within data management and storage, including sales and marketing, strategic partnerships, product management, and long-term strategic planning, will be a tremendous asset as we focus on accelerated revenue growth through continued adoption of our products in the marketplace," said Eric Kelly, president and CEO of Overland Storage. "We look forward to his contributions as we pursue opportunities to expand into new markets. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Shmuel for his service and technology leadership, and wish him well as he takes on added responsibility in his expanded role within the Hitachi Data Systems organization."
