BOULDER -- Ajubeo, an international provider of high-performance virtual data centers and cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) in the U.S. and Europe, announced three new leadership additions: Kelly Muenster as chief technology officer, Jon Freeman as VP of sales, and Justin Kraft as director of marketing.
Ajubeo said the new team has been carefully assembled to further the company’s success and growth strategy. Combined, the team provides 60-plus years of leadership across a wide variety of industries.
“Ajubeo is top notch in everything it does” said Muenster. “The infrastructure team is exceptional, the technologies utilized are best-of-breed, and the processes Ajubeo has implemented to ensure customer satisfaction will continue to be at the core of the business.”
Muenster provides more than 22 years of experience in every aspect of IT operations, engineering, administration, management and leadership, to include strategic planning, software development, information security and compliance, quality assurance, vendor/contract management, process automation, and global infrastructure operations.
With more than 12 years of experience in Healthcare-specific IT operations and compliance, his knowledge of the industry, regulatory compliance and proven leadership skills support the growth vision and increased service offerings of Ajubeo. His experience includes management and leadership positions with Sprint (formerly Nextel), Deloitte & Touche, Colorado Access, the Defense Information Systems Agency, and Equian (formerly The Assist Group).
“It’s a white-hot ecosystem with many vendors fighting to reduce your infrastructure costs and few advancing service delivery levels,” said Freeman. “Ajubeo's cloud solutions and positioning is urgently needed by companies who are looking to move the ‘crown jewels’ into the cloud.
“Companies know the cloud offers economies of scale too large to disregard. Ajubeo’s laser focus provides the financial benefits while supplying the resilience, security, and management controls known to your IT, but lost to technologists in many of today’s clouds.”
Freeman brings a wealth of complex solution-based knowledge and education in startup technology sales to Ajubeo. He has played key roles in producing over $540 million in product and service sales over 30 years of sales and sales management, leading to four acquisitions (Sorbus by Bell Atlantic, Digital Research by Novell, Xircom by Intel, and most recently Confio by Solarwinds).
“With the continued growth and innovation of disruptive technologies such as the Internet of Things, Ajubeo is positioned to do some amazing things,” said Kraft. “Big Data has now become gargantuan and continues down a path of complexity. The need for faster compute, storage choices, comprehensive security, and designs for 100% uptime and will continue to be a need that Ajubeo Cloud Agility provides great solutions for.”
Kraft adds 15 years of experience in marketing, operations, sales, and business leadership, producing positive exponential growth. He helped drive acquisitions and market expansion efforts as co-founder and managing director of Van Bibber Exotic Cars, and marketing executive leadership roles with BSI & BP2 and Bross Group.
He has served the technology and marketing business sectors as a member of the Colorado American Marketing Association Board of Directors and marketing co-chair for the Society of Information Managers 2014 signature event, Simposium 2014.
