To show its commitment to the U.S. market, CentraStage, a U.K.-based SaaS RMM platform provider, has established an office in Costa Mesa, Calif., and hired two IT industry veterans.
Ray Barber, former longtime product marketing and product management executive at Kaseya, has joined as general manager for the U.S. market. Ray is a thought leader in the managed services/IT service provider and RMM software markets and was one of the leaders who helped establish Kaseya’s business in the U.K. and Europe, and was a key leader in the company’s growth in the U.S.
Rob Ryan, former president at HEROware Inc., a high availability software company in the MSP market, and later, director of sales and business development for U.S.-based MSP franchisor TeamLogic IT, has joined as executive vice president of business development, U.S. and Asia Pacific markets. Rob is a 26-year sales and growth leader, multiple-time early stage company CEO, and an established leader in the global IT service provider market.
According to Christian Nagele, CentraStage co-founder and CEO, the two new executives are “building a team to serve our rapidly growing MSP customer base, all of whom are looking for next-generation RMM and leadership to underpin their own business growth over the next decade.”
