CLEVELAND, Ohio, July 16, 2007 Veeam Software, an innovative provider of software for managing virtual servers, has appointed industry veteran George Sidoris as worldwide vice president of sales. With more than 25 years of software industry sales and management experience, Sidoris is well qualified to build Veeam's sales organization and successfully drive revenue growth to help Veeam achieve leadership in the virtualization management market.
Most recently, Sidoris led direct sales and systems integrator programs for the Federal Government sales team at Quest Software. He came to Quest through its 2004 acquisition of Aelita Software, where he worked with both private- and public-sector accounts. During his tenure at Aelita, Sidoris more than doubled revenue, created and led the public sector sales organization, and was personally instrumental in securing multi-million-dollar transactions. Earlier, Sidoris built and led sales teams at a number of small technology organizations, as well as at Computer Associates International (CA). He began his career in information systems operations management with several Cleveland-area companies.
"It's great to be working again with the successful team behind Aelita Software," Sidoris said. "Veeam Software is the natural outgrowth of this group's years of experience delivering and supporting top-quality systems management software. I'm especially impressed by the strength of the development team behind Veeam's products. They know what IT professionals need, and have a proven track record providing practical, reliable solutions to day-to-day systems management challenges."
Sidoris will work from the company's US headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio. More information on Veeam Software and its products is available at www.veeam.com.
