Virtustream has announced that Simon Aspinall has joined its executive team as chief marketing officer. Aspinall spent more than a decade at Cisco Systems and, at Virtustream, will drive strategic marketing initiatives as the company expands its xStream cloud solution product suite, including the xStream Software Infrastructure-as-a-Service (SIaaS) offering and more.
Aspinall will lead Virtustream’s Silicon Valley Office in San Francisco.
Most recently, Aspinall led Cisco’s global marketing teams for Cloud, Service Provider Data Center and Mobile solutions. During his decade at Cisco, Aspinall has also led both business development and sales teams in Europe, the United States and Asia.
Aspinall’s appointment as chief marketing officer follows a year of strong growth for Virtustream; the company opened four new offices in 2011, and recently acquired cloud software company Enomaly, to enhance its xStream cloud solutions and ecosystem.
