"I am confident we are putting into place a team that is not only committed to delivering WANdisco's current mission but also committed to our future in this industry," said David Richards, Chairman and CEO of WANdisco.

Based in the company's San Ramon office, James Creasy will oversee product development and explore emerging technologies to identify new approaches to product offerings, competitive positioning and business architectures for the software development industry. Creasy joins WANdisco from Perforce Software, a privately held enterprise version management company, where he was Director of Product Technology. In that position, he built and led a highly technical group that explored the technological landscape outside Perforce to develop strategic direction, identify new product opportunities, conduct competitive research, adopt emerging technologies and produce effective external messaging. He has also held roles at corporations including GNS Software and Mozart Systems Corporation throughout his 20 years' experience in computer software and engineering.

As Director of Demand Generation, Ribback will develop and implement demand strategies that will help WANdisco expand its reach into the enterprise and developer markets. He joins WANdisco from ThoughtWorks, a company wholly devoted to the art and science of custom software, where he was Director of Marketing. Prior to ThoughtWorks, he was Senior Director of Global Demand Generation at SugarCRM, where he was responsible for developing web-based, e-commerce direct marketing programs to support all stages of the customer lifecycle targeting the SMB market. Combined with his previous positions at organizations like CollabNet, SourceForge and Rainmaker Systems, Ribback has nearly 20 years' experience building global strategic capabilities involving B2B enterprise software as well as Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) product marketing.

Martin, WANdisco's newly appointed Controller, will assist the CFO in providing financial oversight for the company. He will oversee all areas of finance, from accounting to forecasting to analysis. An experienced auditor, he previously spent seven years with KPMG, a global network of professional firms providing audit, tax and advisory services, where he quickly received recognition for achieving Exceptional Performance grading as Audit and Assurance Manager.
