Posted on 15-Aug-2012 09:30 | Tags Filed under: News



New Zealand company GreenButton has announced the appointment of technology industry veteran Jeff Olson as vice president of worldwide sales, leading the company's global sales and business development strategy. In this role, Olson, who will be based at the company's US headquarters in Palo Alto, will report to CEO Scott Houston.

GreenButton is a global software company that specializes in high performance (HPC) cloud computing. The company provides a cloud platform for development and delivery of software and services that enable independent software vendors (ISVs) to move to the cloud and for their users to access cloud resources. GreenButton is Microsoft Corp's 2011 Windows Azure ISV Partner of the Year, with offices in New Zealand, Palo Alto and Seattle.

"Jeff's extensive network and broad technology industry experience is a very valuable asset as GreenButton expands its footprint and takes a leadership position in the US and abroad," said Scott Houston, CEO of GreenButton. "Jeff's comprehensive knowledge of high performance cloud computing and his proven track record in technology sales makes him a natural fit to our seasoned management team. His leadership will promote collaboration on our teams, while keeping a strong focus on GreenButton's customer-centric mentality."

Olson, who has over 15 years experience in the technology industry, joins GreenButton from Red Hat, where he was senior manager of Strategic Accounts for their Storage division, and was responsible for expanding Red Hat's new storage offering to their largest customers in the US.

Previously he was director of sales and later senior director of Channel Sales and Major Accounts at Gluster, a software company that provided an open source platform for scale-out public and private cloud storage and acquired by Red Hat in 2011. While at Gluster he quadrupled their sales teams and helped increase the sales revenue by 10X leading to their successful acquisition. Prior to Gluster he held Director of Sales positions at Krugle and BEA Systems.

"GreenButton has truly made some phenomenal strides in leading the evolution of high performance cloud computing," said Jeff Olson, newly appointed vice president of worldwide sales for GreenButton. "I am thrilled at the opportunity to work with such a talented team and I look forward to helping GreenButton grow from a global perspective, while ensuring that our customers and channel partners reach optimal success in their specific initiatives."
