Mezeo Software Appoints Senior Vice President of Sales

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 9, 2012) - Mezeo Software®, a leading provider of cloud storage management solutions, today announced that Rahul Bakshi has been appointed Sr. Vice President of Sales. Bakshi will be responsible for global sales and field operations teams that oversee enterprise, service provider and channel sales strategies. He reports to President and CEO Steve Lesem.

Bakshi brings over 15 years of sales, product management and solution design skills to Mezeo with a strong background in the Managed Services industry. Most recently, Bakshi was with SunGard and served as Vice President, Solution Design for the Managed Services Line of Business. In addition, he held responsibility for the Managed Services product portfolio and drove the launch of SunGard's first Enterprise Cloud Computing Service offering. Prior to SunGard, Bakshi was Director of Sales and Marketing for VeriCenter, a leading Managed Services Provider that was acquired by SunGard in 2007. In addition to wide-ranging sales and management experience, Bakshi also has comprehensive product experience in cloud computing, SaaS, managed services and outsourcing.

"In the past six months, we've seen a dramatic increase in the demand for Mezeo solutions from a number of avenues," stated Steve Lesem, Mezeo President and CEO. "The interest from our traditional market -- service providers -- has really accelerated. We've also had a number of enterprises, school districts, universities, and government agencies contact us over their growing concern about confidential corporate data leaking onto the public cloud via file sync and share solutions that their employees and partners use for personal music and photo sharing and then evolve to for storing corporate data so they can access it via a smartphone or tablet. Organizations are looking to Mezeo to help them build their own private storage cloud to protect proprietary data. In addition, we have growing interest from hardware and software vendors looking to partner with us. Rahul will focus on the service provider and enterprise markets. His well rounded background is an ideal fit for the Mezeo environment where we are very nimble and team oriented -- focusing on meeting the needs of the customers in a fast-paced and often changing environment."
