Virtual Bridges Expands Executive Team to Pursue DaaS Market Opportunity
Virtual Bridges, Inc. today announced it has appointed technology industry veteran Jon Senger as chief strategy officer, and Bradley Sanford as vice president of corporate development and strategic alliances. Virtual Bridges also named Cole Crawford to its advisory board, further expanding the company’s leadership team. Each executive brings significant industry experience in virtualization, consumerization, cloud computing, OpenStack and BYOD initiatives to their respective roles.

An expert technologist, Senger is responsible for shaping Virtual Bridges’ vision, identifying new market opportunities and enhancing the company’s competitive position. He joins Virtual Bridges after spending the last six years at Dell, most recently as CTO of Emerging Technologies where he worked in the office of the CIO developing innovative strategies to support the company’s cloud computing, virtualization and BYOD programs. In this role, Senger introduced a primary compute BYOD solution as well as various mobile productivity solutions, designed and deployed the OpenStack private cloud within Dell IT, and led numerous corporate development activities.

Sanford brings a wealth of consumerization and user experience expertise to his role at Virtual Bridges. As vice president of corporate development and strategic alliances, he is responsible for global market development, including building and strengthening the company’s eco-system partnerships. Sanford joins the company from Dell, where he spent nearly 14 years in various leadership roles across software development, business operations, audit and emerging technology strategy. He also managed large, complex IT projects at Interim IT and Continental Airlines.

Crawford is an industry thought leader on cloud APIs, virtualization, OpenStack and storage. He currently serves as chief operating officer at the Open Compute Foundation where he is focused on building efficient computing infrastructures at a low cost. In addition, Crawford serves as an advisor for the Linux Foundation. Previous roles include director of strategic alliances for Nebula, Inc., CTO at Autonomic Resources and IT strategist at Dell.

“Virtual Bridges is on a mission to disrupt the end-user computing market and Senger, Sanford and Crawford are highly-regarded and well-respected leaders who will make an immediate impact,” said Sam Cece, CEO of Virtual Bridges. “These three leaders bring an incredible amount of industry experience across virtualization, OpenStack, consumerization, BYOD and cloud computing programs that will help take Virtual Bridges to the next level, driving the development of new VDI solutions and business strategies that deliver greater value to our customers.”

Senger, Sanford and Crawford follow the appointment of Jack Angelo as vice president of worldwide services, and Todd Middlebrook as vice president of product management.

Virtual Bridges’ desktop-as-a-service private cloud solution improves security and mobility across organizations by enabling IT professionals to easily deploy, configure and manage the end user computing experience.
