Cohesity Appoints Craig Martell as New CTO

AI-powered data security company Cohesity has appointed Dr Craig Martell as its new Chief Technology Officer.
“My role will be to accelerate the innovation internally and the advocacy externally of Cohesity’s AI-powered innovations,” said Martell.
Martell most recently served as the Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Officer (CDAO) for the US Department of Defense (DoD). In this role, he was responsible for accelerating the adoption of data, analytics, digital solutions, and AI functions to generate decision advantage across the department.
Before joining the DoD, Martell was Head of Machine Learning at Lyft, where he designed and built a state-of-the-art machine learning platform, allowing that company’s engineering team to create and ship machine learning models using large-scale, new, and ongoing statistical programs.
From 2018 to 2020, Martell was Head of Machine Intelligence at Dropbox, responsible for all machine learning, including overall vision-setting, drawing from analytics as applied to machine learning, and clear, concise communication of machine learning strategy across the organisation. Before then, he led several AI teams and market-moving initiatives at LinkedIn. Martell was also a tenured computer science professor at the Naval Postgraduate School specialising in natural language processing.
 “Attracting and hiring an industry pioneer of Craig’s calibre, someone who has been driving an agenda of responsible AI at the highest levels of both public and private sector organisations, rounds out our strong executive leadership team with expertise across security, multi-cloud, and AI,” said Cohesity President and CEO Sanjay Poonen. “Craig’s experience and vision for Cohesity’s AI roadmap will accelerate our lead in this critical business area.”
