Sendmail, a provider of Sentrion Email Infrastructure Platform, has appointed Glen D. Vondrick as president and chief executive officer. Vondrick, who has been president and chief operating officer of Sendmail since 2008, succeeds Donald J. Massaro. He and Massaro together share credit for transitioning Sendmail from an open source and software-only company to the provider of enterprise e-mail infrastructure appliances.
At Sendmail, Vondrick has led the company’s global operations including Sales, Professional Services, Customer Support, Business Development, and Marketing. During his tenure as president and COO , Sendmail Sentrion Email Infrastructure Platform had become the popular standard e-mail platform used by many Fortune 500 enterprises and government agencies around the globe, and that resulted in threefold increase in the sales of the company.
"Glen Vondrick's proven expertise in leading teams in the execution of Sendmail's strategy under Don Massaro provides the company with a seamless, logical, and natural succession," said Peter Chung, member of the Sendmail Board of Directors and Managing Director, Morgan Stanley Venture Partners.
According to a press release, during his 30 years of high-tech industry experience, Vondrick has undertaken several key roles, including executive leadership roles over the past 15 years in the messaging security space. Before joining Sendmail, Vondrick worked as president and chief executive officer of FaceTime (News - Alert) Communications, where he repositioned the company to become the market leader in instant messaging management, compliance, and security solutions. Previously, Vondrick held senior leadership positions at Inference Corporation (acquired by eGain Communications (News - Alert)), Autodesk, Inc., and Ithaca Software (acquired by Autodesk, Inc.).
"With the increasing global adoption of employees using personal mobile devices for business purposes, and the rapid migration of more email services to the cloud, enterprises now more than ever need to modernize their outdated messaging infrastructures," said Sendmail president and CEO, Glen Vondrick.
