Industry Veterans Bring Extensive Knowledge in Channel Marketing and Product Management to IT Security, Audit and Compliance Leader
Glen Rock, NJ – March 29, 2012 – STEALTHbits Technologies, the provider of the industry’s most comprehensive IT management and compliance platform for Microsoft-based systems, applications and data repositories, today announced that it has expanded its staff with three key appointments in business development, corporate strategy and marketing. Kevin Cancilla has been appointed vice president of marketing, Charlie Palella has been appointed vice president of business development and Edward Hand has joined the organization as vice president of corporate strategy.
“With these new hires and our recent acquisition of NetVision, we’ve entered a new stage of growth,” said Steve Cochran, CEO of STEALTHbits Technologies. “Charlie will be instrumental in forging new relationships with the channel and maintaining the highest levels of service and support that our customers have come to expect and Kevin and Ed will allow us to elevate our brand and penetrate new market segments to become a more recognized force in the IT security and compliance space.”
Kevin Cancilla, vice president of marketing, has more than fifteen years of global enterprise software marketing experience in leading corporate communications and demand center strategy teams. Prior to STEALTHbits, Cancilla served as director of corporate marketing and demand center at Tripwire, where he helped drive year-over-year pipeline growth for seven consecutive years. He also held various marketing roles at Adobe, Bann and Epicor Software.
“Kevin has many years of marketing experience in the enterprise market, developing integrated programs and partnerships that yield financial results, expand the customer base, increase market share, and build brand affinity,” said Cochran.
Charlie Palella, vice president of business development, has been in the IT industry for nearly thirty years, initially starting with the networking company, DataTech Inc., specializing in retail and banking environments. Transitioning into sales and marketing for CMP Media Inc, Palella helped launch InformationWeek Magazine. While at CMP (and then UBM Channel for the past twenty years), Palella held various management positions with CRN, VARBusiness and XChange Events.
Charlie has a proven track record in building channel marketing programs for major IT companies like IBM, Dell, Lenovo, AMD, and RedHat. His experience will help us grow our customer base and sales organization as we add new STEALTHbits products and expand into the channel and mid-market,” added Cochran.
Edward Hand, vice president of corporate strategy, brings more than fifteen years of enterprise software experience to his role at STEALTHbits, having previously had success in sales and product management and partner relationship positions. Prior to joining STEALTHbits, Hand held sales leadership positions for Symantec, Quest Software and Automatic Data Processing.
“Ed brings a depth of skills and knowledge of markets and technology that will help STEALTHbits grow and expand our product development, market penetration and field execution,” commented Cochran.
In February, STEALTHbits announced it acquired NetVision to help extend its product portfolio to the mid-market and offer channel-ready solutions. It also introduced StealthINTERCEPT™ Directory Authority, the first in a line of new, channel-ready product offerings designed to address the mid-market’s need for more advanced security.
