SANZ also announced three key management changes designed to enable the Company to begin the implementation of its new strategy.
These changes included the hiring of:
Todd Oseth, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, has twenty five years of business experience in a variety of industry segments. Previously, he was Chief Operating Officer of McDATA Corporation, a publicly-held data access solutions provider that was successfully restructured and sold in 2006. Before joining McDATA, Todd was Vice President of the Infrastructure Software Group at EMC Corporation.
Bob Antoniazzi, Vice President Solutions Engineering, has more than 20 years experience designing, developing, and deploying systems and solutions across a broad array of industries and technologies. He was most recently Senior Director of Product Strategy and Planning for the Infrastructure Software Group at EMC Corporation. Prior to his role at EMC, Bob served in executive roles at several start-ups providing technical and business guidance that successfully drove these companies into the marketplace.
Kevin Burns, Vice President Marketing and Business Development, drives the SANZ solutions marketing, business development and corporate positioning initiatives. Over the course of his career, Kevin has spent 19 years in the data networking arena. Most recently he was Vice President of Corporate Marketing at McDATA Corporation, a leading provider of data access solutions. Previously, Kevin was a co-founder of Intelliden Corporation, a leading provider of network automation solutions.
The new management has begun to restructure SANZ to streamline operations and enhance its product offerings. This transformation involves upgrading sales management in specific districts and tailoring the product line to eliminate low performing, low margin products.
SANZ is positioning itself to become the smart choice for its commercial and federal customers by offering customized horizontal and vertical solutions. Over the next few quarters the Company expects to begin rolling out its new solutions offerings.
"As we work to transform SANZ, we're focused on maximizing our national sales footprint by providing scalable and repeatable data access solutions that customers need," said Todd Oseth, Chairman and CEO. "Since joining the company in March, I have been listening to customers, meeting with partners and working with our employees."
Oseth continued, "I am convinced that we can compete effectively in this market by refining our sales efforts, creating the right solutions and improving key internal processes. Over time, I believe these focused efforts will enable us to position SANZ as the trusted provider of heterogeneous data access solutions within the commercial and federal markets."
