Our life as a startup has been in hyperdrive since our launch in March and we’ve experienced some key milestones over the past few months. We raised and announced Series A and Series B funding rounds, expanded our customer list and are in the process of building strong partnerships with exciting tech companies like ClusterHQ.

Today, I am excited to share that we are adding three new executive hires and key stakeholders who will help us deliver the best possible SDS platform and experience to our customers: Matt Johnson,Vice President of Engineering; Phil Williams,Vice President of Business Development & Channels; and Darrell Billings, Senior Director of Global Support to Hedvig. Matt, Phil and Darrell bring proven track records of customer success from top-tier companies including NetApp, Dell and EMC.

newguysMatt joins our engineering team from NetApp and will focus on our overall product strategy for the Hedvig Distributed Storage Platform. Phil will help establish our partner ecosystem and enable Hedvig to better address growing customer demand for our platform in the US and overseas. Finally, Darrell will build out our customer support program that will be key to providing comprehensive service to our growing portfolio of clients.

We look forward to working with Matt, Phil and Darrell as we enter this next stage as a company. You can learn more about their background in today's press release.
