At Commvault, he led the North American Sales Team and Global Sales Engineering Team for their newly acquired security portfolio, significantly bolstering their security offerings and enhancing their go-to-market strategy & overall execution.
Before Commvault, Louis served as Director for Americas Strategic Accounts at Forcepoint where he led the Sales Engineering Team and contributed significantly to providing solutions to Forcepoint’s top customer base.

With the company's innovative solutions and a strong commitment to excellence, I am eager to help drive its continued success."
NeuShield delivers a completely revolutionary approach to data protection. Rather than trying to detect and block threats one-by-one, the company’s patented NeuShield Data Sentinel product shields important data to prevent threats from modifying it. Business and consumers use NeuShield Data Sentinel as a simple, reliable and budget-friendly way to revert digital files and devices to their pre-attack state when other malware defenses, like antivirus and anti-ransomware, fail.
