SANTA CLARA, CA: Mary Ann Gallo is returning to Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) as senior director of corporate marketing and communications. From 2005 to 2008, Gallo worked as director of global PR at HDS, and then she joined VMware as director of global PR in April 2008.
In her new role, Gallo will lead the teams responsible for integrated marketing, as well as corporate communications. She starts her new role at HDS on November 2. Aaron Feigin, head of global communications at VMware, told PRWeek he has not named a replacement for Gallo but is "actively searching."
Earlier this year, HDS enlisted Bite Communications as its AOR in the United States.
