Case study on iOra appoints New Chief Operating Officer

iOra Software Ltd has appointed Philip Wye as its Chief Operating Officer (CEO Designate) to drive the business forward on a global basis. He is responsible for building the sales operation and directing product development.

Wye has over 24 years of sales and leadership experience within the IT sector for organisations such as Sun and Cisco. He also founded and built Kaazing’s EMEA operation, offering a powerful web and mobile communication platform, to become the company’s most successful region globally in 2010 (200% growth) and in 2011.

“I’m delighted to be joining iOra at such an important time in its development,” says Wye.  “The company is in an excellent position – it has the right product in a strong market at exactly the right time. Its patented compression and replication tools are highly valued by adopters of Microsoft SharePoint who need to share critical information with users who are isolated from high speed networks.  I’ll be looking to consolidate and expand the company’s already considerable success in the defence, maritime and oil & gas markets.”

Wye will draw on his skills and experience in building markets to expand iOra’s client base in its key business sectors across a wide geography including Europe and Asia Pacific and with particular focus on building on the company’s achievements in the United States.

Mark Thompson CEO at iOra says,

“We are thrilled that Philip is joining us to lead us into our next phase of growth and development. I am confident that iOra has a strong leadership team that will be instrumental in the growth of the business.”
