With a deep background in the IT industry, Bridgers helped drive healthy growth for 3PAR storage as vice president, and then stayed after its acquisition to bolster success for Hewlett-Packard as sales director of the company’s storage division. It was in these sales leadership roles that Bridgers created a compelling vision for the IT infrastructure needs of businesses. Earlier in his career, Bridgers was a leader in sales management during the high-growth years of Oracle, PeopleSoft and several successful emerging growth companies, taking those products and solutions to market in data centers worldwide. With a vast understanding of how to build agile teams, Bridgers connects with customers to provide them with the best solutions for their needs.

These industry-knowledgeable executives share a vision of HCI replacing legacy offerings from incumbent IT companies in the enterprise data center and are eager to bring the benefits of this technology to their network of clients. The recent additions will further position the company as a leader in the HCI segment as it puts its patented technology to work in the mainstream IT marketplace. Daniel Keelan will serve as Pivot3's Executive Vice President with responsibility for sales and supporting groups worldwide.

Brad Ross, formerly of VMware, brings extensive experience in executive sales leadership from his time at such well-regarded companies as BMC Software, EDS, CSC and A.T. Kearney.
