AlertSite Appoints Ken Godskind Chief Strategy Officer

AlertSite(R), a leading provider of Web site performance management solutions, announced today Ken Godskind will serve as the company's Chief Strategy Officer. Formerly Vice President of Web Performance Evangelism, Godskind will now lead AlertSite's mission to globalize, meet evolving industry and customer demands, and accelerate growth and new business opportunities.

"As our company continues to expand, I can't think of anyone better suited than Ken to assume the responsibilities of steering our strategic direction in this highly competitive industry," says Ken Gross, President and CEO of AlertSite. "People said the browser wars were over. But the introductions of Microsoft Internet Explorer 8, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome show the variables that can impact the user experience have never been greater. There's never been a more important time to measure the user experience from inside the browser or a greater need for AlertSite to have a Chief Strategy Officer develop a clear and consistent approach to ensure we remain a leading Web performance platform."

Godskind began his career with AlertSite in 2002. He has been involved in many of the company's major initiatives during his tenure, including launching the company's new products, re-tooling existing product lines, and raising public awareness among IT professionals for Web performance.

"I am thrilled to take on this new position at AlertSite," says Godskind. "With more business applications moving online, Web performance monitoring is increasingly seen as the mission critical application. It's imperative that we carefully chart an accurate and strategic course to ensure that AlertSite's technology and service offerings remain second to none in capabilities and execution."
