Former Executive for VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix to Expand Strategic Alliances Globally
CloudJumper, a leading provider of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), Workspace as a Service (WaaS) and Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solutions, recently announced the appointment of Robin Brandl as vice president of strategic alliances. Brandl joins CloudJumper as the company builds on its relationship with Microsoft and prepares for the combined delivery of Cloud Workspace Management Suite (CWMS) software with the Windows Virtual Desktop platform.
Brandl’s focus at CloudJumper will be to expand the company’s alliance with Microsoft and other technology partners while supporting the company’s base of solution delivery partners. Prior to CloudJumper, Brandl served as global business development manager for VMware’s Horizon Cloud on Azure business unit. Before VMware, he served as the enterprise mobility/RDS national sales lead for Microsoft, spearheading the launch of the platform throughout North America. Preceding Microsoft, he served as the global Microsoft evangelist for the Worldwide Microsoft Alliance Team at Citrix in support of desktop virtualization and VDI solutions.
“The introduction of Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop and its integration with CWMS presents a tremendous opportunity for CloudJumper and its global ecosystem of IT solution providers,” said Brandl. “The company is bringing real innovation to the delivery and consumption of virtual desktop and IT workspace solutions by uniquely streamlining workflow orchestration and automation. I am very bullish on the market and excited to join CloudJumper in support of its cloud forward partners and customers.”
