DAILYHOSTNEWS, December 12, 2011 – rPath, the application engine provider for the private cloud, recently announced that it has expanded its operations with the opening of a Northeast office in Waltham, Mass. The company also named 20-year software industry veteran, Doug May, as its newly appointed vice president of worldwide sales. In this capacity, May will help drive the company’s global sales efforts for its rPath Cloud Engine, new software that allows cloud technology vendors and managed service providers (MSPs) to deliver critical applications with consistency, reliability and speed.
With more than 20 years of technology sales experience, May brings to his new role deep expertise in the cloud market and an ability to consistently surpass revenue goals, ramp sales organizations for growth, and develop repeatable sales models. Before joining rPath, May was northeast regional sales manager for BMC, a world leader in business service management (BSM) software, where he outperformed sales objectives and led a team that serviced a variety of high-profile clients, including Verizon, MetLife, Citi, Merck, Deutsche Bank, AIG, and Bank of America.
“MSPs and cloud tech vendors understand that applications are critical to enterprise business success, and the ability to manage them at cloud scale will separate the winners from the losers,” said Michael Torto, CEO for rPath.
Torto also attributed recent growth to the company’s unique approach to customer success, face-to-face service, and support for the entire duration of a customer’s application deployment process.
Launched earlier this year, the rPath Cloud Engine is new software that helps private or hybrid cloud providers ensure that their software stack offers consistent, reliable, and fast application delivery and updates. In addition to providing end-to-end application management, rPath Cloud Engine plugs and plays into any cloud technology ecosystem, helping tech vendors, hosting providers, and MSPs who partner with rPath to differentiate their products to enterprise customers with bulletproof application delivery.
