SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — 3VR, the video intelligence company, today announced the addition of Chief Marketing Officer Joe Boissy to the company’s leadership team.
Boissy joins 3VR from IBM where he was director of go-to-market strategy and industry marketing for WebSphere enterprise software. Boissy, with more than 20 years of technology marketing experience, previously served as vice president of worldwide marketing for ILOG, a supplier of business rule management systems, where he guided the company on a double-digit growth path resulting in an acquisition by IBM in July 2008.
“Joe joins 3VR at a pivotal time in our growth,” said Al Shipp, CEO of 3VR. “His impressive track record of taking products to market and executing campaigns across a range of industries and geographies will be tremendously valuable as we pursue new opportunities both at home and abroad.”
Prior to ILOG Boissy ran product marketing and product management at SunGard Trading and Risk and at Infinity Financial Technology, which was acquired by SunGard in 1997. He began his career at Paris-based Diagram Financial Software, now part of Thomson Reuters.
