Cloud Visionary Adam Wray Teams Up with Cloudsoft Corporation

Tier3 Founder and serial entrepreneur Adam Wray joins Cloudsoft board

LAS VEGAS--()--IBM PULSE 2014 – Cloudsoft Corporation, the leading provider of autonomic multi-cloud application management, today announced the appointment Adam Wray as a non-executive director at IBM Pulse 2014.

“From the outset our mission has been to bring business to the cloud. The appointment of Adam Wray to our board heralds an exciting new chapter for Cloudsoft,” said Duncan Johnston-Watt (CEO & Founder, Cloudsoft). “Adam brings unrivalled knowledge of the cloud computing industry in both an executive and advisory capacity.”

Adam is a cloud enterprise technology executive and entrepreneur with 20 years of experience under his belt who has built and advised companies at different stages through accelerated growth to acquisition, the most recent being his own company Tier3 and ServiceMesh where he was a strategic advisor to the Board.

As CEO of Tier3 he transformed them from a start-up into a leading global Enterprise Cloud Platform across multiple countries and continents; recognized as an "Innovator" in Gartner’s IaaS Magic Quadrant, with strong Fortune 500 enterprise client traction, and industry leading partners delivering accelerated revenue growth. As part of that transformation, he grew the company’s client portfolio and revenues to an eight figure annual run rate ($10M+), raised almost $20M from leading venture capitalists and secured critical go-to-market partnerships. In November 2013 Tier3 was acquired by CenturyLink for a strategic nine figure valuation.

“Cloudsoft sees the world exactly the way we saw it at Tier3, but with a tight focus on enabling the governance of applications and their aggregate workloads,” said Adam Wray. “They understand the importance of giving enterprises the ability to exploit the distributed nature of cloud services without losing control. My mission is to ensure that they capitalize on this vision by being laser focused in terms of their execution.”

Adam joins fellow Clouderati Richard Miller (CEO, Telematica) and former Wall Street CTO Shawn Findlan (CEO, West Avenue Capital Partners).
