Fortisphere has hired Siki Giunta as its new CEO, replacing Michael Harper at the helm of the Glenwood company.
Giunta joined the network virtualization firm a month ago. She was hired for her background at Managed Objects, a Northern Virginia firm bought by Novell last year.
Harper led Fortisphere to a $10 million first round of venture capital in 2008 from investors Fairhaven Capital Partners and Globespan Capital Partners, both of Boston. Giunta built Managed Objects from a pre-revenue startup 10 years ago to its $50 million sale, she said.
