The corrected release reads:


Vello Systems, a leading provider of
deployable software-defined infrastructure for matching system
resources to application requirements in cloud, big data and other critical
enterprise services, today announced that it has appointed Steve Leonard to
the company’s board of directors. Leonard is a well known business-building
strategist, and joins serial entrepreneur Cheng Wu as an outside director on
the company’s Board.

“We are excited to have Steve join Vello’s board of directors. As a well-known
industry veteran, he brings critical experience and market understanding to
the table that will help guide Vello’s next level of growth and development,”
said Karl May, chief executive officer, Vello Systems. “Steve’s track record
of success in growing major technology companies and brands, his wide network
of industry relationships, and his proven ability to build shareholder
value will be of great impact in helping Vello become the leading company for
innovation-driven enterprise networking solutions, especially as we continue
to expand our international presence.”

“As compute, storage, and networking systems converge to support complex
application requirements, Vello has begun to establish itself as the leading
provider of innovative infrastructure software to accelerate the
process," said Steve Leonard. “Customers need to roll out new applications
quickly across a broad multivendor network and storage environment, but that
can be complicated and costly.
Vello delivers software-defined infrastructure-management capabilities
that enable these complex systems to work together as a single entity
regardless of vendor. This represents an important leap forward in putting
choice and control in the hands of the enterprise customers. I am excited to
support Vello in helping its customers more-confidently confront their cloud-
and big data-driven challenges moving forward.”

Leonard is Deputy Chairman of the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore,
a role he began in May 2013. For more than 20 years, Leonard has been a senior
executive at major technology companies including EMC, Symantec, and EDS. In
each of those roles, he was accountable for building and leading large
go-to-market organizations, in addition to other executive responsibilities.
From 2006-2013, Leonard worked for EMC Corporation (EMC), first as President
Asia Pacific/Japan, then as Corporate Senior Vice President Global Emerging
Markets. Prior to EMC, Leonard was Senior Vice President Asia Pacific/Japan
for Symantec Corporation, and held various senior positions at EDS Corporation
including President Solutions Consulting EMEA.
