Earlier this year, Seagate began reshaping portions of the company to better anticipate and meet the needs of its expanding base of customers, resulting in five market-facing business units: Enterprise Storage, Personal Storage, Consumer Electronics Storage, Branded Solutions and New Business Initiatives. Dexheimer, who formerly held the title of executive vice president, Sales, Marketing and Customer Service, will be responsible for the direction and management of these units, providing vision, leadership and focus at the most senior level.
"Throughout his 22 years at Seagate, Brian has been an integral part of our growth and success," said Bill Watkins, Seagate chief executive officer. "Brian's vision and strategic direction have been instrumental in driving growth in our core markets, and in providing the company access to new markets and significant revenue opportunities. As one of the architects of Seagate's new market-facing organization structure, Brian has shaped an organization that will further leverage Seagate's strengths to address the specific storage needs of targeted markets and customers."
A career veteran of the storage industry, Dexheimer came to Seagate with the company's acquisition of Imprimis in 1989. He has held a variety of leadership positions, including vice president and general manager of Seagate RSS (Removable Storage Solutions), senior vice president, Marketing and Product Line Management for Desktop disc drives, and senior vice president, Worldwide Sales and Marketing.
In May 2000, he was promoted to executive vice president, Worldwide Sales, Marketing and Customer Service, responsible for all sales, marketing, product planning and customer service for Seagate. In December of 2005, he was named to the additional responsibilities of leading the company's newly defined business units.
Dexheimer holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from The University of Portland and a Masters of Science degree in Business Administration from Pepperdine University.
