SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2015) - Iron.io, a leading provider of event-driven computing solutions, announced today it has expanded its executive management team with the hire of Jim Conning as VP of engineering and Kris Bondi as VP of global marketing.

"We are excited to welcome Jim and Kris to the team," said Chad Arimura, co-founder and CEO of Iron.io. "Their respective experience and proven track record at high-growth technology companies will help catalyze our adoption in the enterprise space and increase brand recognition for Iron.io."

Conning joins Iron.io with more than 23 years of technical and engineering management experience, including Fortune 500s Oracle and Charles Schwab as well as startups such as Scribd and Piczo, a social network Conning founded that at its pinnacle was more highly-trafficked than Facebook.

"Jim understands how to build a passionate, mission-driven engineering organization, and we're thrilled that he'll be supporting our efforts to continue to create solutions that solve real problems facing Enterprises, while building out a world-class team," said Travis Reeder, Iron.io CTO and Co-founder.

Bondi is a seasoned marketing executive who has a proven track record of ramping demand generation and brand efforts to supporting hyper-growth. In her more than 20 years international marketing experience she has worked with many companies with groundbreaking technology including Moka5, TIBCO and Mashery. As VP of global marketing, Bondi will balance building the front end of the marketing and sales pipeline and making Iron.io famous.

"One of Kris' unique skills is translating complex technology into easy to understand language that is accessible to business buyers and the media," said Reeder. "Kris and her team are great partners to Iron.io developers. They're making sure everyone knows how cool our technology is."

In addition to Conning and Bondi joining the Iron.io executive management team, Ivan Dwyer, formerly Iron.io's partner business development lead, has been promoted to head of business development. In this role, Dwyer will build a team dedicated to Iron.io's strategic partner relationships with innovative companies like Pivotal, RedHat, and Microsoft Azure. In addition, Dwyer's team is responsible for integrating the Iron.io platform with its strategic partners' technology as well as third-party services such as Twilio and SendGrid.
