ViON Corporation, a market leader in the design, delivery and maintenance of mission critical IT infrastructure solutions, today announced the expansion of its executive leadership team to include a new Director of Capture Management, Vice President of Capacity Services and Vice President of Marketing. The new appointments are intended to fuel the expansion of ViON’s portfolio of Federal, public sector and commercial clients, broaden the Company’s enterprise technology offerings, and develop and strengthen strategic partnerships with leading OEMs such as NetApp, EMC, Cisco and Hitachi. The leadership team expansion also corresponds with a new branding effort ViON launched in early May.
“The caliber of these new appointments speaks volumes about the reputation that ViON has built up over the last two decades,” said Tom Frana, President and CEO of ViON. “The fact that we are able to draw such elite candidates, in a time of genuine competition for such talent, is an indication of how well ViON is positioned for near-term and long-term success.”
For the role of Director of Capture Management, ViON has appointed Dan Hunter. Mr. Hunter will work to mature ViON’s business processes and capabilities around acquiring and managing government contracts. Prior to ViON, Hunter served as Senior Director of Business Development and Capture at General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) (NYSE: GD). A member of the AFCEA, Hunter has also worked for Terremark Federal Group and IMOBIX during his nearly two decades in the IT industry.
ViON has appointed Rob Davies as the new Vice President of Capacity Services. Mr. Davies will leverage his professional expertise and ViON’s well-known success in this sector to enhance the Company’s capacity programs. ViON’s capacity services allow Federal, public sector and commercial customers to readily access secure compute, network and storage infrastructure via ViON as an out-sourced IT infrastructure solution, or for enhancing the elasticity of current IT environments. Prior to his new position at ViON, Davies worked for two decades in support of information technology for the U.S. Federal government and commercial businesses, most recently as COO and then CEO and President of Base Technologies before its acquisition by Computer Associates (CA). His specialty is managing day-to-day operations, while directing large enterprise environments and providing support for international and domestic programs. Davies was a finalist in the 2012 GOVstar SmartCEO awards.
For the role of Vice President of Marketing, ViON has appointed Liz Anthony, who has more than 20 years’ experience implementing marketing plans and strategic communications programs in the technology industry. Ms. Anthony will focus her efforts on taking ViON to the next growth level by increasing its brand visibility, developing new strategic partnerships and expanding ViON’s client base beyond its traditional government focus to include large commercial customers in need of enterprise-class infrastructure solutions. Prior to joining ViON, Anthony served as Senior Manager at Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) and NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP), where she was responsible for the U.S. Public Sector strategy, developing integrated programs with key value added resellers (VARs) and systems integrators (SIs) and managing key partnerships with companies like General Dynamics, SAP and Virtustream. She is a member of Women In Technology and AFCEA.
