In support of its continued growth, Axway (NYSE Euronext: AXW.PA), a market leader in governing the flow of data, announced today it has added two new members to its leadership team for sales and business development. Pat Ryan, formerly of IBM, has joined Axway as Senior Vice President, North America Sales; Marcelo Ramos, formerly of GXS, has taken the role of Senior Vice President, Latin America. In their roles, Ryan and Ramos will help Axway meet the growing global demand for the Axway 5 Suite, the industry’s only solution that helps organizations govern the flow of data across enterprise, cloud and mobile environments.

“Our goal is to continue to grow the organization and give customers the solutions they have come to trust and rely on to govern data flows and remain competitive in their respective markets,” said Christophe Fabre, CEO, Axway. “Pat Ryan and Marcelo Ramos bring strong leadership experience and have expertise in growing brands and pipelines in their respective market segments which will help drive widespread adoption of the Axway 5 Suite, and cement our position as a global leader in governing the flow of data.”

Pat Ryan joins Axway with more than 30 years’ experience leading global sales teams, most recently as the Director, Worldwide Sales for IBM's business solutions portfolio.

Prior to IBM, Ryan held sales leadership positions at companies including WorldTalk Corporation, NetFrame Systems and Wang Laboratories with involvement in global sales, marketing and global operations. In his new role, Ryan will be responsible for overseeing Axway’s North American sales organization. His primary goal will be driving sales productivity and customer satisfaction for the Axway 5 Suite, in alignment with the company’s mission to help organizations govern the flow of data.
