Bright Computing names Dan Kuczkowski as Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales


22 Mar 2016 San Jose - Bright Computing, an independent provider of cluster and Cloud management software for high performance computing (HPC) clusters, Big Data clusters, and OpenStack Clouds, has appointed Dan Kuczkowski as Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales. Dan Kuczkowski will play a key role in shaping and steering the sales team to drive aggressive growth. Leading both direct and indirect sales, Dan Kuczkowski will focus on broadening Bright Computing's footprint across the clustered and Cloud-based IT infrastructures of leading companies, government agencies, and academic institutions.

Leveraging Bright's leadership position in high-performance computing, Dan Kuczkowski will accelerate the company's expansion into Big Data and OpenStack management, as all of these areas begin to converge. His appointment closely follows the February 2016 announcement of Bill Wagner as chief executive officer, as well as the June 2015 announcement of Kristin Hansen as chief marketing officer. The recent wave of executive announcements signals Bright's commitment to building managerial bench strength, growing the company aggressively, and supporting its large global roster of customers and partners.

Dan Kuczkowski is known throughout the tech industry for building world-class sales teams, capturing new business, and closing major deals. He has a history of exceeding sales goals consistently over more than twenty years, while generating high revenue growth in companies of all sizes.

At Bright, Dan Kuczkowski will draw from leadership experience acquired in enterprise software start-up companies as well as Fortune 100 firms. Previously, he served as a regional vice president for Verint Systems Inc., a provider of software and hardware products for security, surveillance, and business intelligence. There he created a new regional sales group that achieved significant license and revenue growth. He has also held executive sales management positions at Oracle and BEA Systems Inc.

"I am excited to join Bright Computing, whose comprehensive software platform is so effective in helping customers to manage their advanced IT infrastructure in such a simple, scalable, and elegant way", stated Dan Kuczkowski. "This company is poised to grow quickly as it solves an increasingly broad and complex range of issues faced by today's IT executives, managers, and systems administrators."

According to Bill Wagner, Bright's CEO, "Dan's past experience will be important in showing how customers can use our software to make other pieces of their technology stack work most efficiently. He will guide our worldwide sales teams as they demonstrate how Bright's simple yet powerful 'single pane of glass' management platform can extend powerfully across the data centre and the Cloud."

Bright Computing provides a robust portfolio of management software for on-premise and Cloud-based advanced IT infrastructure, including high-performance computing (HPC) clusters, Big Data clusters, and OpenStack-based private Clouds. Headquartered in San Jose, California and Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Bright is deployed in hundreds of commercial, government, and academic organisations worldwide.
