Executive Moves at AvePoint, Intermedia, Datto, Teamatics
Several technology companies unveiled new hires and promotions associated with strategic moves on Tuesday.
AvePoint, which provides tools for migrating, managing and protecting Office 365 and SharePoint data, updated a raft of senior executive roles on Tuesday.
The Jersey City, N.J.-based company brought on a new chief revenue officer, Christopher Larsen, and a new chief financial officer, Anthony Branca. Larsen previously held a similar role at software company Model N and has also held senior positions at SAP, TIBCO and Infragistics. Branca came from AppNexus and has worked at ICON Investments Corp. and KPMG.
In other moves, AvePoint promoted Dux Raymond Sy to chief marketing officer and public sector chief technology officer Wei Chen to chief service delivery officer, Mario Carvajal to chief technology officer of North America, and Tom Lin to corporate vice president of sales.
Intermedia, which bundles cloud business applications and serves as an Indirect Provider for partners in the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program, is bringing on a marketing executive with 16 years of experience at Polycom Inc.
Jim Kruger will start as chief marketing officer and executive vice president overseeing Intermedia's global marketing on May 15. In addition to his experience running a marketing operation of 160 people and a $60 million budget, Intermedia is looking for Kruger's market sector expertise as it works to expand the Intermedia Cloud Voice business.
In a nod to the importance of open source projects to its business and the industry, data protection solution provider Datto Inc. hired Markus Rex as an open source industry expert.
Rex will help oversee Datto's open source initiatives, including the use of the open source ZFS operating system, which is part of Datto's Inverse Chain technology used by managed service providers for backup and restore capabilities.
Rex was most recently co-founder and CEO of ownCloud, an open source file sync and share platform. He is also a past CTO of the Linux Foundation and has held senior management positions at Novell and SUSE.
Jamison West, a high-profile Microsoft partner executive and managed service provider who founded Jamison West Consulting Services, renamed it Arterian and then sold the Seattle-based business last year to Houston-based Aldridge, now has a new venture.
After leaving both Aldridge and Seattle for Las Vegas, West on Tuesday launched an HR-focused software company called Teamatics LLC. The company bills itself as a platform for developing human capital and improving team performance.
