INFONETICS CEO WELCOMES DR. CLIFF GROSSNER

“We’re ecstatic to welcome seasoned telecom industry veteran and research scientist Clifford Grossner to the Infonetics team,” says J'Amy Stewart, CEO and co-founder of Infonetics Research. “Cliff’s strong enterprise data center background and more than 20 years of product management and marketing experience with telecom vendors big and small, including Alcatel-Lucent, Nortel, Bell Labs, Sesame Networks, NewStep and March Networks, will help us take our data center and cloud coverage to a deeper level. In fact, he’s already set in motion plans to expand our coverage of enterprise software-defined networking (SDN) and cloud services.”

Grossner says: “What drew me to Infonetics was the opportunity to join a top-notch team of telecom analysts and researchers that are highly respected by both vendors and industry press. My new role as an analyst will enable me to bring my knowledge of data center technology to a broader audience, sharing market intelligence and advice with Infonetics’ clients to help them leverage their strengths and exploit opportunities in today’s economy.”

Company Co-founder and Principal Analyst Michael Howard and Directing Analyst Matthias Machowinski, who have been leading Infonetics’ data center and cloud coverage, will work closely with Grossner as he transitions into the directing analyst role.

We’ve increased our staff by 15% in just the past 12 months, and are on track to grow our revenue by 12% this year to hit a third-consecutive year of record-high revenue.
