Back in February, we announced fiscal 2016 was Nasuni’s best year yet for financial results. Today we announced more great news that shows our momentum is continuing, and we’re scaling up to meet growing demand for our technology:
- Our fiscal Q1 just ended in March was our best bookings quarter ever.
- We’ve added some incredibly talented people to our executive team, including Paul Flanagan as our President, Tom Rose as our Chief Marketing Officer, and Kathleen Parrish as our Vice President of Human Resources,
- We’re getting ready to move into our new headquarters in downtown Boston, which is double the size of our current location.
Today’s press release “Customer Successes, Leadership Appointments and New Headquarters Position Nasuni for Rapid Growth” has the official details, but here are a few more of my thoughts.
This growth wouldn’t be possible without the support of our customers, who are choosing Nasuni not only for more scalable file storage, but for the improved collaboration and more efficient business processes that our solution enables.
Multi-billion-dollar life safety, energy, and specialty construction leader APi Group is a prime example. As they shared in another press release we issued today, business runs better when you have a global file system that can span all locations, provide a single authoritative source of all unstructured data, move even the largest files around the world with ease, and guard against any data loss event.
Introducing Our New President
Paul Flanagan, our investor and board member from Sigma Prime Ventures (and the first person I convinced to invest in Nasuni!) is our new President. Paul has assumed all operational responsibility for the company, allowing me, as CEO, to do more of what I love: evangelize Nasuni, help our sales and business development teams close big deals, and evolve our product and technology vision.
Paul is well-known as an investor at Sigma Partners and, later, at its spin-off Sigma Prime Ventures. But he’s just as well-known for being an outstanding operational executive who led StorageNetworks and VistaPrint to IPOs. VistaPrint, now Cimpress, is still an independent company, valued today at more than $2.5B. After 8 years as an investor, Paul missed being in an operational role, rolling up his sleeves, and working every day as part of a team. The timing was perfect for him to come on board as President to help scale the company.
I couldn’t be more thrilled that after working with Paul as a board member, I now get to work with him as Nasuni President.
We’re all excited about the upcoming move to our new Boston headquarters. The new main office gives us a lot more room to grow. Plus, it’s located in the Seaport district, the new hotbed of high tech activity in Boston. We’ll be right in the middle of everything, and in a much better position to attract top talent.
We now have all the pieces in place to be the next major force in enterprise storage. Stay tuned for more updates as Nasuni scales up … just like our cloud-native file system!
