BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Mar 16, 2016) - Ramp, a leading provider of next-generation video management and delivery solutions for large enterprises, announced the appointment of Steve Connor as Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Connor's extensive background includes senior roles at Oracle, Sun Microsystems, projekt202, and Evity. Over the course of his 28-year sales career, Connor has generated more than $4.5 billion in revenue.

"Steve's proven track record in marketing, sales, alliances and business development make him another valuable addition to Ramp's senior management team, as we move forward quickly and aggressively," said Ramp CEO Tom Racca. "He brings an unusually strong combination of experience at both nimble startups and the largest companies in the B2B tech world."

Over the course of eight years, Connor was the Director of Global Strategic Alliances at Oracle and Director of Strategic Alliances at Sun Microsystems. Subsequently, he led growth, development, and acquisition efforts at Evity, culminating in its sale to BMC Software for $100 million.

At Ramp, we make enterprise video as available, searchable and sharable as any other piece of content, so enterprises can unlock its hidden value. And Ramp's innovative content delivery network fits into existing infrastructures without the complexity and cost of a P2P overlay upgrade."
