Ipanema Technologies Appoints Ex-Riverbed SVP, Jim Darragh, as CEO to Drive Growth in a Market Ripe for the Picking
PARIS --(Business Wire)--
Technologies - the industry leader in network solutions allowing
enterprises to guarantee their application performance - today announced
Jim Darragh as its Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately.
In his new role, Darragh will aggressively push Ipanema (News - Alert) Technologies as
a leading challenger in the WAN Optimization Controllers (WOC) and
Services (WOS) markets and the only vendor who can dynamically guarantee
application performance for every user.
Darragh's experience spans 20 years in international, high-growth
software and hardware companies, most noticeably his recent roles as CEO
of Zeus Technology and SVP at Riverbed (News - Alert). He is expertly aware of the
market in which Ipanema Technologies operates. He understands the
current shift in the marketplace towards WAN Optimization as a service
(WOS) and passionately believes Ipanema Technologies is fantastically
placed to take advantage of this.
Darragh explains his decision to join the company, "This sector is set
for explosive growth in the coming years and I'm thrilled to have the
opportunity to be at the helm of a company that can capitalize on this.
Ipanema Technologies offers the perfect antidote to everyone currently
under pressure to operate, deliver and control networks cost effectively
in what is an increasingly complex environment with more and more
applications being added daily."
Darragh continues, "There are four things that attracted me to Ipanema
Technologies - customers, technology, the market, and the people.
Ipanema works with an impressive list of big, global brand names; the
technology is cutting-edge and there's a culture of innovation that I
believe will keep it that way, the market is ripe for the picking and
the people are passionate and committed. This is a mix that I can work
with and I'm confident that I can take Ipanema Technologies to the next
Jean-Yves Leclerc, Executive Chairman at Ipanema Technologies, comments,
"Darragh's previous leadership has been visionary and this is exactly
what we need. The challenge for Ipanema Technologies now is to be part
of every business IT consideration; that's the kind of attention our
technology warrants. It's not everyday that you meet someone who
understands our market and has the leadership and operational skills to
make something happen; Darragh is that man."
