NIMBOXX Expands Executive Management Team

NIMBOXX, a leader in Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) solutions, today announced it has expanded its executive management team with the addition of technology industry veterans Tejas Vakil and Andy Salo. Vakil will serve as vice president of sales and marketing, while Salo will focus on product strategy and alliances, as vice president of product management. Together, Vakil and Salo bring more than fifty years of product management, sales, marketing and engineering experience to the company.

“The market for hyperconverged infrastructure products has grown quickly, with NIMBOXX serving on the forefront of innovation in this space,” said Rocky Bullock, CEO of NIMBOXX. “The addition of industry veterans like Tejas and Andy will allow us to accelerate our product strategy to meet customer demand, and ensure our marketing and sales organization is well positioned to support strategic sales and revenue goals.”

With more than 35 years in the computer and services industry, Vakil provides leadership in revenue creation, channel development, external messaging and market positioning. He has held executive positions at Dell, Compaq, Arvato (Bertelsmann), and Tandem, as well as multiple startups in the virtualization, blade server and RFID markets.

“In my 30+ years in the computer industry, I have never seen a start-up as well positioned in an emerging technology segment as NIMBOXX,” said Vakil. “In a relatively short period of time the company has developed an award-winning hyperconverged technology platform that is changing the way customers and partners implement their private cloud strategies. I look forward to working with the team to ramp up sales and marketing activities with the goal of becoming the market leader in this space.”

Andy Salo brings more than 20 years of experience to NIMBOXX in product management, sales and engineering at successful high-tech companies. Most recently, Salo was vice president of product management at Imagine Communications through the acquisition of RGB Networks, where he defined the software cloud strategy for CloudXtream, an OpenStack-based private cloud architecture for video service providers. He has also held go-to-market strategy roles at network caching and delivery company Inktomi (acquired by Yahoo), storage security vendor Decru (acquired by NetApp), security leader TippingPoint (acquired by 3Com/HP), and network management software leader SolarWinds (IPO).
