Ipanema Technologies, a leader in application traffic management systems for wide area networks, today announced that Nigel Pink has been appointed vice president and general manager for the UK and Ireland (UKI).
Pink has extensive experience both in the UKI and internationally, including most of the 27 European Union countries, as well as the Middle East, Africa, China and the United States.
Recent roles have included key positions at Cisco Systems, SAP and Interel PR and PA Consulting. Pink led the creation of Cisco’s Europe Middle East & Africa (EMEA) business with IBM, which grew to become a multi billion dollar business and still flourishes today. At SAP, he drove its public sector business in EMEA’s non-German speaking countries. At Interel, his practice provided sales management consulting for leading organisations including Oracle Corporation, Unisys and SUN Micro Systems.
Reza Madhavi, president of Ipanema Technologies, said: “The UKI market is an exciting and increasingly important one for Ipanema. We are ramping up to meet strong demand for our offerings. Nigel’s appointment is central to our UKI growth. He brings the right mix of leadership skills, high-tech experience and knowledge of global markets through key prior management roles.”
Enterprises are increasingly demanding their service providers deliver value-added network services versus pure bandwidth services. Ipanema Technologies in partnership with BT, Cable & Wireless, Orange Business Services, TATA Communications and VANCO, part of the Reliance Telecom Group, in the UKI is the first to offer turn-key managed services that address the strategic requirements of global network management and optimisation. Complementing the value-added network services approach, Ipanema sells directly to enterprises, partnering with systems integrator such as Telindus.
According to Pink, “Performance of business critical applications across the network is essential to every organisations' success. Ipanema's Autonomic Networking System ensures applications such as point of sales and supply change management perform at all times. In doing so, Ipanema provides detailed insight to manage valuable network infrastructure and resources.”
