(The Hosting News) – The Norwegian software vendor eZ Systems AS (http://www.ez.no), known for its award-winning Open Source Web Content Management Platform eZ Publish, announces that Dylan T. Williams joins the company as the new Vice President of the Americas. Gabriele Viebach, CEO of eZ Systems, welcomes the new addition to her global team: “Dylan brings more than 20 years of experience in direct sales and sales management to our company. I am absolutely confident that he and his team in New York will bring forward our goals of increasing our market share and broadening the presence of eZ Systems across the Americas, particularly North America.”
Over the past 27 years, Williams has been active as sales and business development manager in many fields, encompassing the technology, financial and content management industries. During his 7-year tenure at the analyst firm Gartner, Inc., he successfully developed market strategies around content, portal and collaborative initiatives, aiming at driving interest in solution based technologies. Most recently he has been responsible for managing and developing a CMS partner support framework at Rackspace Hosting, Inc. At eZ Systems, he will be working closely with Gabriele Viebach and her team in order to further establish the company on the fast growing North and Central American markets. Williams feels certain: “eZ Systems has realized an impressive growth over the last few years. With our most recent acquisitions, eZ Publish’s growing reputation as a versatile and reliable CMS platform and the upcoming release of eZ Publish 5 ‘Kilimanjaro’, I am very excited about our long-term growth prospects.”
While the most recent release 4.7 “Etna” of eZ Publish added new levels of extensibility, adaptability and accessibility to the successful CMS software, the upcoming (November 12th 2012) release 5 will feature a complete refactoring of eZ Publish. Through an enhanced multichannel delivery and interoperability with existing infrastructure, each version of eZ Publish is fully compatible with a variety of digital business models. The integrated eZ Market offers a wide array of certified extensions for eZ’s CMS platform while the Cloud Edition of eZ Publish allows businesses to experience the same standards of the on-premise edition without having to establish a complex runtime environment themselves. As VP of the Americas, Williams plans to further develop the status of eZ Systems as the leading Open Source Customer Experience Management (CXM) provider: “With a top-tier team of Sales, Partner Management and Marketing professionals, we will increase eZ’s sales and brand awareness across the Americas while at the same time strengthening our partner program.”
