Mendix Appoints Vice President of North American Sales
Adam Clay highlights Mendix opportunity in North American enterprise software market.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 20, 2011
Mendix, the leading agile application platform provider, announced today that Adam Clay has been named Vice President of Sales for North America. Clay joins Mendix after leading Shunra Software to record revenue growth and worldwide expansion.
Clay explains his motivation to join Mendix: â€œHaving worked in technology for 15 years, Iâ€™ve observed a fundamentally dysfunctional relationship between business and IT. Itâ€™s broken. Everyoneâ€™s frustrated â€“ and it starts with the fact that business and IT expectations regarding feasibility and speed are incredibly difficult to align. Unfortunately for most companies, the dysfunction manifests itself in lost revenue, increased cost, and lost productivity. It doesnâ€™t have to be that way, and thatâ€™s exactly what Mendix is addressing.â€
â€œItâ€™s a simple, yet revolutionary concept. The team at Mendix has married the business need for responsiveness and ITâ€™s desire to provide business value quickly into a solution that delivers what is needed most in todayâ€™s business climate: agility. And it solves a major problem for businesses today. The Mendix story is one that needs to be told. My job is to make sure that we are telling that story to everyone.â€
â€œWith Adam, we are adding a strong and experienced sales leader to our North American team,â€ said Derek Roos, CEO of Mendix. â€œI am looking forward to working with Adam and seeing his contribution to our North American growth.â€
