Liquidware Labs has announced the addition of three more senior sales leaders to cover strategic markets as well as two alumni from a past competitor to occupy key technology development positions.
Vizioncore alumni Joseph Castro, Paul Buergey, Scott Bennett and Anne Waterhouse have joined the sales force at Liquidware Labs in regional sales management roles.
Castro will lead sales for the Eastern US while Buergey will head the Western US Region. Bennett will drive sales in the United Kingdom, Benelux and Southern Europe, and Waterhouse will head up sales for Australia and New Zealand.
In addition, Ron McKelvey and Pete Del Rey, co-founders of PHD Virtual, have also joined Liquidware Labs as Director of Special Projects and Technology Evangelist, respectively. PHD Virtual was an early competitor to Vizioncore, and the two companies were instrumental in driving acceptance of the first solutions for virtual machine backup.
McKelvey co- founded PHD Virtual in 2006 with Del Rey after working with P2V technologies in the very early roll-out of server virtualization technology and subsequently became one of the top providers of P2V custom solutions for large, early-adopter companies. McKelvey also has more than 20 years of successful development experience in providing custom solutions, and his work in virtualization led to the development of esXpress, which gained the respect of growing client base and is still a widely-used backup solution for VMware environments.
Del Rey was a key contributor in the launch of the esXpress backup software for VMware and played a key role in the rapid growth of PHD Virtual in the industry. Pete held many leadership and management positions throughout the growth of PHD Virtual after a successful career in development for ERP and data center systems at Siemens.
He has also been active in the VMware and XenServer community boards and regularly contributes to these sites under the board name “petedr.”
Liquidware Labs provides desktop transformation solutions for physical and virtual desktops, including VMware View, Citrix XenDesktop, and Microsoft Windows 7.
