Zededa strengthens executive team to meet increasing demand for edge solutions

Zededa, a provider of edge computing solutions, has announced the expansion of its leadership team with four new appointments. Erik Nordmark, a Zededa company co-founder, was promoted to Chief Technology Officer. Additionally, Paul Campaniello will serve as vice president of marketing, Michael Maxey as vice president of business development, and Raghu Vatte as vice president of product management and customer success.

Zededa CEO Said Ouissal said of the appointments, “Edge computing is increasingly important within organizations, and these new executive hires will strongly position us to meet the needs of the biggest customers, helping us to build out our internal teams and provide even more value to our customers and partners.”

Nordmark will lead Zededa’s product architecture and vision as the company’s CTO. He will drive collaboration with the Linux Foundation and evaluate new technologies and partnerships while continuing to interact directly with Zededa’s key clients. Before serving as a Zededa company co-founder, Nordmark held engineering positions at various companies, including Arista Networks, Oracle and Cisco.

“For several years, we’ve been watching the natural evolution of the data center, cloud and now the edge has become the center of data within organizations. With the creation and collection of data at the edge now exploding, organizations more than ever need to re-envision their traditional IT and OT operations to enable the new business cases and strategic value this will drive,” Nordmark said.

As vice president of marketing, Paul Campaniello will lead worldwide marketing and communications, including brand, go-to-market strategy, product marketing, sales enablement, demand generation, analyst and public relations.

“I’m thrilled to help Zededa address the rapidly growing edge management and orchestration market,” Campaniello said. Zededa is extending the cloud experience to the edge, and it’s clear the need for a secure and flexible edge solution will continue to grow.”

Michael Maxey will ease the process of deploying software on the edge as vice president of business development.

“At the distributed edge, customer value is delivered in a complete solution. Management and orchestration are extremely important. But it’s equally important that the entirety of the solution is easy to consume and implement,” Maxey said. “The options are endless with the number of edge use cases growing daily. And I can’t wait to build strategies for all these use cases, partnering with the best companies on the planet.

Meanwhile, as vice president of product management and customer success, Vatte will work with Zededa’s expanding customer base, starting with deployment and continuing through future demands.

“While some technology sectors are seeing slowdowns, edge computing investments continue to increase because of the strategic value it brings to organizations across all verticals,” Vatte said.

“I’m looking forward to helping our customers fully unlock this value by providing solutions that solve their specific business needs.”

The new hires come on the tail of Zededa receiving $32 million in Series B funding, led by Core Energy 7 and including Samsung Next, Juniper Networks, Porsche Digital, and Chevron. This brings the total to $55 million raised to date. The company also notes Zededa has seen revenue grow sevenfold, while the number of nodes under management has increased by 4 times in the past year.
