Accellion Adds GM of EMEA to Management Team

Addition of Keith Poyser Supports International Growth of Secure Enterprise Mobility Solutions

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 20, 2015) - Accellion, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise mobile solutions that enable increased productivity and security, today announced that Keith Poyser has joined the company as general manager of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. In this role he will lead the strategic direction and support the growing sales team in EMEA.

"Keith brings extensive experience and success in leading high-performing, technology sales teams, which will support Accellion's rapid customer growth. This growth is being fueled by worldwide demand for customized enterprise mobile content solutions," said Yorgen Edholm, CEO of Accellion. "Enterprise leaders around the globe need customizable mobile solutions that will transform business processes, without adding data security risks. Adding Keith to our team ensures that our newly launched kiteworks mobile content platform is getting into the hands of these leaders."

With more than 20 years of experience in developing and selling technology-led products and services, Poyser has consistently been named a top performer and sales leader. This has been demonstrated by his significant sales growth while building and leading businesses at both blue chip and SMB organisations. Prior to joining Accellion, he served as Sales Director Europe and CEE for IBM's End Point and Mobile Management Division, where he was responsible for driving significant double digit growth. Previously, Poyser ran the EMEA channel and MSP business for BigFix Incorporated, building strategic alliances with OEM's and SI partners. Earlier in his career, Poyser had several leadership positions as a sales and business unit manager for Sun Systems/Oracle, as well as prior technology and engineering roles. He earned a BS (hons) in English Literature from the University of London, and undertook postgraduate studies at the College of Law, London.

"I'm excited by outstanding technology, which is one reason I've joined Accellion. Mobility is about secure productivity at its core, and we enable secure, seamless access to any content on any device, for real productivity on the move. The chance to bring a revolutionary product like the kiteworks mobile content platform to enterprise customers is exciting. It's a chance to provide them with a way to securely mobilize workers in every business unit, which is not something traditional MDM vendors can truly bring," said Poyser. "Accellion has historically strong growth in EMEA, and I'm looking forward to working with, and expanding, the great team here. We have an excellent opportunity to grow the reach of kiteworks and help transform business processes across industries and countries."
