Great news today as we officially introduce Larry Alston to ownCloud as president, leading the outbound focus of the company, including sales, marketing and communications.
Larry has been helping us out since January in essentially the same role and we are very pleased to have him join us full time. To attract someone with Larry’s background and success is yet another indication to me that we are on the right path here at ownCloud.
“ownCloud is the only file sync and share company that gives companies control of their data. The potential of this company and this market is immense and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
Larry was most recently president at FuseSource Corporation, an open source integration and messaging company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Progress Software. He was responsible for all aspects of FuseSource’s business and strategic direction, resulting in a high growth open source business, which was acquired by Red Hat in September 2012. Before FuseSource, he held senior management positions at EnterpriseDB, IONA Technologies, and eXcelon Corporation where he held a variety of positions from divisional general manager, vice president marketing, and vice president product management. With more than 25 year’s experience, he has a proven track record of success in building and growing infrastructure software business.
