)-- VLabSource, a leading provider of online virtual labs, today announced the expansion of its executive team, adding David W. Nelson as Chief Technology Officer. In this role, Mr. Nelson will be responsible for guiding the company’s technology strategy and evolving the company’s hosted virtualization and virtualization management tools.
Mr. Nelson brings more than 20 years of industry experience to VLabSource. Most recently, Nelson served as the head of Corporate Architecture for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., for 5 years. He also led strategy and customer evangelism for Novell, Inc. and was a principal consultant for EDS, Los Angeles.
“David’s extensive corporate IT experience, as well as his background with major ISVs and integrators will be crucial as we continue to expand our virtually hosted infrastructure offerings,” said JD Marymee, CEO of VLabSource. “He has unparalleled expertise and insights into solving IT problems, and I’m delighted that he is joining our leadership team.”
“It takes society about 30 years to adopt a technology,” said David Nelson, “and often the final years are the most violent in terms of evolution of the eventual result. Well, the PC is turning 30, and industry analysts have called virtualization ‘the most disruptive technology the PC has faced in a decade’, so the stage is set. I am incredibly pleased to have the opportunity to drive that disruption for our customer’s benefit with JD and the great people at VLabSource”.
