Santa Clara -
SANTA CLARA, CALIF.—October 30, 2017—Infoblox Inc., the network control company that provides Actionable Network Intelligence, today announced that it has appointed Sammie Walker as chief marketing officer (CMO) of Infoblox. Walker will be reporting to Infoblox president and chief executive officer Jesper Andersen. In her new role, she will lead the company’s worldwide marketing and communications efforts to accelerate Infoblox’s growth and market leadership in security, cloud, and network intelligence.
Walker has been with Infoblox since 2016 as VP of corporate marketing and demand generation, where she focused on driving demand for Infoblox’s networking and security solutions and led the company’s global awareness. Her core responsibilities included global brand, corporate marketing, global demand generation, and a broad range of other responsibilities.
“We are delighted to announce Sammie’s promotion to CMO. Over her nearly two years with Infoblox, Sammie has proved herself as an invaluable leader and partner of the business,” said Andersen. “Sammie has demonstrated an infectious enthusiasm for elevating Infoblox’s brand and industry leadership, and driving profitable business growth. I’m confident that under her leadership, analytical capabilities, and creativity, Sammie will continue to fuel our growth in this competitive market.”
Walker has a strong track record of achieving record-breaking results through focused and creative end-to-end global marketing initiatives. She brings to Infoblox over 20 years of marketing expertise in defining, launching and growing companies in the networking, analytics, security, digital advertising, telecom and collaboration markets. Previously, Sammie held senior marketing management positions with Aerospike, Actian, Appspace, Vidyo, Zenprise, Transera Communications and Genesys Telecommunications (Alcatel).
“As hackers and malware threats grow in sophistication and volume, today’s connected organizations desperately need network infrastructure protection solutions,” Walker said. “Yet, the fact is that most security teams don’t realize how crucial the network is to their business integrity and stability, leaving it vulnerable. During my time at Infoblox, I’ve enjoyed being part of the smart, motivated and talented team helping drive market awareness of this security blind spot – and look forward to continuing to do so in my new capacity as CMO.”
Walker holds an MBA from the School of Economics & Business Administration from St. Mary’s College.
