The Colorado-based Edge PaaS has made two key hires
BOULDER, Colo., April 18, 2017 – section.io today announced the hire of Matt Haentzschel as Chief Revenue Officer, a role in which he will oversee and build section.io’s global sales team. Haentzschel brings a significant amount of experience in content delivery to section.io: He has held senior positions at EdgeCast, BandCon, and LimeLight Networks, and saw both EdgeCast and BandCon through acquisitions to Verizon and Highwinds respectively. His expertise in selling content delivery solutions to large websites will be invaluable as section.io expands the team and adds functionality to their platform.
section.io is revolutionizing the content delivery industry by providing users with a choice of website performance and security tools built on a flexible platform with features that support Agile and DevOps workflows. The company, which was originally founded in Sydney, Australia, completed TechStars Boulder in 2016 and has since moved into a permanent office in Boulder, announced a partnership with eCommerce platform Magento, and expanded their product offerings.
“As a veteran of the content delivery industry I’ve yet to see a solution like section.io. The way this platform can replace traditional CDNs as well as Application Delivery Controllers and integrate fully with modern developer workflows is unique. I’m excited to join the team and eager to help build our customer base, as well as the global organization,” said Haentzschel.
In addition, section.io announced that Derek Nolde has joined the sales team as Enterprise Sales Director. Nolde also brings experience in the website monitoring and performance areas, previously working at New Relic and Fastly. Haentzschel will be based out of Los Angeles while Nolde will be based out of San Francisco, expanding section.io’s capacity to work with key eCommerce players on the West Coast.
Stewart McGrath, CEO and co-founder of section.io, said of the hires, “We are thrilled to have both Matt and Derek on board. Their experiences in the Content Delivery industry and Matt’s knowledge of how to build a sales team from the ground up will be crucial as section.io continues to grow.”
section.io is the only website performance, scalability, and security platform which gives developers the control they need to achieve unmatched website speed and reliability. Unlike legacy Content Delivery Networks, section.io provides a software-defined Edge PaaS that enables developers to easily customize their web performance and security compositions while integrating with modern development workflows.
