Prior to joining the company, he was CRO at UiPath, a cloud-based SaaS company in robotic process automation, where he led the growth of annual recurring revenue from $40 million to more than $365 million, an 812% increase during a two-year period.
“Qumulo’s cloud and file software is unparalleled in its ability to support a wide variety of applications, to scale massively and to provide fast, data-driven insights to accelerate innovation and business outcomes,” said Bumpus.
“I see tremendous opportunity to grow and expand the business as organisations around the world look to leverage file services in the cloud and the data centre.”

Revenue growth during his tenure at Nutanix grew from less than $100 million to more than $1 billion during a four-year period, which also included a highly successful IPO.
Bumpus has also held numerous sales leadership positions at several companies, including Cisco, Utimaco and EMC.
