Silicon Valley veterans join founders to form management team in Palo Alto to help build Sales, Marketing and Operations

PR9.NET October 14, 2013 - Palo Alto, CA - On the heels of raising 2.5M in Venture Capital financing, Hazelcast (http://www.hazelcast.com) today announced that it has hired two executives to grow sales and marketing. Hazelcast also recently moved its headquarters to Palo Alto California. Paul Salazar was appointed as VP of Sales and Operations and Miko Matsumura as VP of Marketing and Developer Relations. These changes round out the executive management team reporting to CEO founder Talip Ozturk.

Miko Matsumura is a 20 year veteran of Silicon Valley and was the original Java Evangelist at Sun Microsystems. Most recently he served as SVP of Platform Marketing and Developer Relations at Kii Corporation. He served as a CTO for Software AG and a VP at webMethods, which acquired his startup company INFRAVO for $38M. He is a Limited Partner at Focus Ventures, which manages over a half a billion dollars. He holds an MBA from SFSU as well a Master's degree in Neuroscience from Yale University.

Paul Salazar is a veteran of the technology business having worked in high tech for over 25 years, as an engineer, product manager, marketing and sales executive, and general manager. He has extensive open source software experience including Red Hat, Cygnus Solutions and OTRS, and also in executive roles at Greenplum (now EMC) and Skytree. Paul attended Stanford University and has Bachelors and Masters degrees in Electrical Engineering, and an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB). He is an avid amateur astronomer.

We are increasingly being used in mission-critical applications by huge global organizations. I'm committed to building the world class infrastructure and processes around the globe to provide 24x7 mission-critical support to these customers in Banking, Telecommunications, Government, eCommerce and many other industries." Talip Ozturk, founder and CEO said "By adding seasoned executives in sales and marketing, we now have the core team that will help the company through the next stage of growth. Our board already includes seasoned executives such as Ali Kutay (former CEO of Weblogic), Rod Johnson (founder of SpringSource) and Salil Deshpande (successful open source venture capitalist). The formation of this new team enables us to drive this experience into day-to-day operations."

Mr Salazar said "The volume of downloads of Hazelcast and inbound requests coming from Fortune 500 class companies is amazing, and speaks to the quality of the product and its reliability in mission-critical data centers. I'm excited to help build what will become a world-class software company."

Mr Matsumura said "Programmers liked Java because they could write a single program that could run on many different kinds of machines. They love hazelcast because they can now run a single java program on top of a cluster of hundreds of machines using plain-old-java objects."
