Codero Hosting (www.codero.com), a leading provider of dedicated, managed, and cloud hybrid hosting services, announced its expansion with its new Austin, Texas office and the addition of Chandler Vaughn as SVP of Product Development. This is the company’s third office with headquarters in Lenexa, Kan. and a location in Phoenix. Codero provides hosting services from its Phoenix, Chicago, and Ashburn, Va. data centers.
The Austin office will be home to Codero President and CEO Emil Sayegh, members of the product development, marketing, customer support, and sales teams. Vaughn will be responsible for directing and building out development, product management, and strategic alliances for the company.
“I am fortunate to have worked with Chandler at Rackspace so I know first hand that he is a great team builder, a strong leader, and I am confident that he will add to Codero’s rich, vibrant culture,” said Sayegh. “Chandler will spearhead our world-class product development strategy and team to accelerate our growth and success. His work ethic and experience in building enterprise-grade private, public, and hybrid clouds will bring enormous value to Codero.”
Vaughn was most recently with SunGard where he was VP of Cloud Product Development. He ran SunGard’s technical design and engineering efforts for the Cloud and Managed Services businesses, and defined the technical strategy for both the Recovery Services and the Managed Services businesses. Vaughn also served as the founder and head of the Cloud Computing Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin, a project for which he was named as the inventor on several pending patents for Distributed and Cloud Computing. Before joining SunGard in early 2010, Vaughn was with Rackspace where he launched both the Rackspace Cloud Servers and Cloud Files products lines. He also led the Product Management and Product Marketing teams for Rackspace’s Managed Hosting business through Rackspace’s accelerated growth prior to IPO.
“Austin’s vibrant technology community and reputation for being a hub of innovation will benefit Codero significantly, helping us to continue our expansion and enabling us to better serve our global base of customers,” said Vaughn. “I’m honored to join the strong team at Codero. Together we’ll continue to raise the bar in providing customers with a no-compromise hosting experience combined with the exceptional service we are known for.”
