Enterprise Momentum 
Sierra Ventures Partner and Former Oracle Executive Bring In-Depth
Enterprise Expertise to Appcelerator 
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/18/13 --  Today,
Appcelerator(R), provider of a leading enterprise mobile development
solution, announced the appointments of Gamiel Gran as Vice President
of Business Development and Neeraj Gupta as Vice President of
Engineering. Gran, a Sierra Ventures partner who previously led
channel efforts at IBM, Oracle and BEA, and Gupta, a twenty-year
software industry veteran recognized for his expertise in translating
business objectives into engineering execution, will further fuel the
company's explosive momentum in the enterprise mobility market.  
"The incredible opportunity in this market is directly similar to the
markets that I witnessed at Oracle and BEA in their early stages;
both of these market leaders reached success with broad partner
ecosystems," said Gran. "Appcelerator has already amassed a large
partner community -- the combined strengths of Appcelerator's mobile
platform and the closely aligned partner community have positioned
Appcelerator in perhaps the most competitively distinct position." 
Gran's access to a unique and highly influential network of CIOs and
CTOs presents Appcelerator with new opportunities in the enterprise
market. For the past 5 years he has led the Sierra Ventures CIO
Advisory Board of more than ninety Fortune 500 CIOs and CTOs. With
access to seasoned leaders from companies like eBay, Facebook, and
Merck, as well as cutting-edge entrepreneurs, Gran is a constant
participant in the collective conversation on achieving true mobility
in the enterprise.  
Gupta notes, "Mobility is the mover of the decade, and Appcelerator
already has the vision, the community and the technology to drive it.
Aligning this to satisfy business imperatives that are growing by
leaps and bounds will give customers and partners the confidence they
need to plunge ahead."  
Intimately familiar with enterprise technology needs, Gupta led
software development at Oracle for a decade before his most recent
role as VP of Engineering for mobile 
development startup Particle
Code. There, he founded the company's engineering division,
experience he will leverage as he enhances Appcelerator's processes
and manages and expands Appcelerator's global platform engineering
"As enterprise executives have realized the need for comprehensive
mobile strategies and a mobile-first platform, we have continued to
experience tremendous growth," said Appcelerator CEO Jeff Haynie.
"Gamiel and Neeraj both bring the exact skills needed to solidify our
leadership position in the enterprise. With Gamiel's powerful network
of customers and partners and Neeraj's deep technical expertise, I
foresee even more impressive growth in our future."
