Kaseya Appoints Two New Executives to Management Team, Strengthening Its HR and General Counsel Functions

Kaseya Appoints Maribeth Bearfield to EVP of Human Resources and Michael Pellini as General Counsel

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/14 -- Kaseya, the leading provider of cloud-based IT management software, today announced two additions to its executive team: Executive Vice President of Human Resources (HR), Maribeth Bearfield, and General Counsel, Michael Pellini.

Maribeth Bearfield brings more than twenty years of experience in organizational development and human resources to Kaseya. Maribeth most recently served as the EVP, Chief Human Resources Officer for The Hanover Group. There, she led a team of over 100 HR professionals to successfully implement a revitalization of the organization's HR department and establish international standards to drive corporate momentum. Prior to The Hanover Group, Maribeth served as Chief Talent Officer for State Street and held earlier leadership roles at Cisco, Oracle and Verizon.

"Kaseya is at an incredibly exciting phase in its development," said Maribeth Bearfield, Kaseya's Executive Vice President of HR. "The company is leading change in the IT management space and this is fueling the next phase of growth for the business. I'm thrilled to join at this time in order to help structure and deliver on our growth and business goals."

Michael Pellini joins Kaseya as General Counsel where he will drive the company's legal team. Michael brings more than 25 years of experience at leading technology companies in various corporate counsel positions. Prior to joining Kaseya, Michael was Deputy General Counsel for six years at Unica Corporation, where he helped to take the company public while growing revenues from $60 million to more than $125 million during his tenure, prior to its acquisition by IBM Corporation. At IBM Michael served as counsel for an additional three years. Michael was also Director, Legal Affairs at publicly held Art Technology Group (ATG) and held similar positions at both Hilton Hotels and Bayer Corporation.

"The opportunity to work for a company with Kaseya's market potential doesn't present itself every day," said Michael Pellini, General Counsel for Kaseya. "Providing the legal structure and support for Kaseya's rapid and sustained business growth is incredibly exciting."

Both executive appointments come on the heels of a transformative year for Kaseya. The acquisition of Kaseya by Insight Venture Partners and the appointment of Yogesh Gupta as President and CEO in June 2013, were followed quickly by the addition of several key new management team members. The company since has transformed its engineering to a completely agile development model, and has delivered two high quality major product releases under this model already. Kaseya also acquired leading products for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) management, cloud and service level management and cloud application administration to complement its portfolio. As a result of these changes and more, the company has shown strong business growth and customer acquisition success. The appointment of accomplished industry leaders like Maribeth and Michael will help Kaseya continue to drive and support its growth and success in the market.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo.

How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, described how to revolutionize your archit...
MuleSoft has announced the findings of its 2015 Connectivity Benchmark Report on the adoption and business impact of APIs.

A majority are integrating wearables, like smart watches, and more than half plan to generate revenue with APIs within the next year.
