Newport Beach, CA, Feb 06, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
Sendio, a leading provider of email security and productivity solutions, today announced the appointment of Kip Quackenbush as President and Chief Executive Officer. Quackenbush brings a broad range of enterprise software experience to the company and his career includes executive leadership posts with three other companies in the messaging security industry (Akonix, Red Condor, and Edgewave). With over 20 years of experience in driving strategy and revenue for public and private companies in leading edge technologies and services sectors, Quackenbush brings operational and sales mastery as well as entrepreneurial spark to Sendio.
"We are fortunate to have Kip join Sendio, bringing his many years of extensive executive experience and proven ability to grow high-tech businesses," said Francois Helou, Sendio Chairman and Senior Partner with lead investor Athenian Venture Partners. "Kip has a firm understanding of what it takes to move innovative companies to the next level. With hands-on support from Sendio's board and all three General Partners in Athenian's IT practice, we look forward to Kip's leadership and strategic direction as the Company's highly skilled team continues to develop its cutting-edge technology and distinctive approach to email security and productivity. Sendio's focus remains to provide no-nonsense solutions that work for small and medium sized businesses and organizations."
"Kip is uniquely qualified to lead Sendio given his extensive leadership experience and knowledge within the security industry," said Adam Meislik, Sendio Board Member. "With his proven track record in accelerating growth in high tech companies, Kip is the perfect addition to our Company. I'm confident in his ability to help the Company successfully execute to its roadmap and accelerate its growth."
"The Sendio approach to email security and productivity is more a paradigm extension than a shift. We employ a "positive" security model; that is - no one is better to determine what email you want to receive than you," stated Quackenbush. "Blocking spam is one thing - extending the positive security model to manage all "bulk" email is entirely another - and that is the Sendio difference. Our customers are intensely loyal and that affirms our approach is the right one. It is this consistent validation, the company's talented team, and fantastic support from our investors that has me excited about the future of Sendio."
