Fortisphere, a provider of enterprise virtual machine lifecycle management software, today announced that Dan Harding has joined the Fortisphere management team as vice president of sales. With more than 15 years of sales and sales management experience, Dan will lead the Fortisphere sales team as the company responds to the markets demand for intelligent virtualization growth with its virtual machine (VM) lifecycle management solutions.

Armed with significant experience in the burgeoning virtualization market, Harding comes to Fortisphere from SWsoft, a leader in server virtualization and automation. As vice president of enterprise sales for SWsoft, he developed and grew virtualization revenue by more than 200 percent annually for the U.S. enterprise markets.

Prior to joining SWsoft, Harding was regional vice president of sales for Cable and Wireless, a leader in IP network and enterprise hosting solutions. Before joining Cable and Wireless, he was employed by dynamicsoft (purchased by Cisco), a leading provider of infrastructure software. Prior to dynamicsoft, Harding spent six years at UUNet where he completed his tenure as regional vice president of carrier sales, managing a sales team that focused on key accounts including Dell, AOL, Bellsouth, Earthlink, Savvis, Qwest and Gateway. Dan holds a B.S. in business administration from Marymount University.

With its innovative technology and proven management team, Fortisphere is ideally positioned to answer the markets demand for smarter virtualization growth, said Harding. I look forward to utilizing my skills and experience in virtualization technology sales to help bring the Fortisphere suite of VM lifecycle management products to market.
