Wyse Strengthens EMEA Cloud Computing and Virtualization Team

Wyse Technology, thin computing and client virtualization company, on Tuesday announced the appointment of Karl-Heinz Warum as General Manager and Sales Director for Wyse Germany, Eastern Europe and Russia.

Warum has previously worked as General Manager and Senior Area VP Central and Eastern Europe at Citrix Systems GmbH for 12 years, growing Citrix in the region from a small organization to a major force in the fast growing desktop virtualization market.

The appointment supports Wyse’s aggressive cloud computing growth plans and ambitions for Germany and the extended Eastern European region where it is confident of replicating the success it has seen in other geographies around the world.

Speaking on his appointment, Warum said, “If one has watched the IT industry for the last years, it has become very clear that desktop virtualization will be the reigning topic of the next decade. With the further set-up and expansion of our region Central and Eastern Europe – also taking into consideration local customer needs – we will ensure Wyse a leading position in the areas of client virtualization and cloud computing while at the same time helping organizations utilize Green IT to meet the tough environmental targets we are already seeing from the European Union.”

Mark Jordan, Vice President EMEA for Wyse Technology, added, “Wyse is very pleased to have gained the talents and expertise of such a senior figure in the virtualization market. Karl-Heinz’s direct experience of driving and managing rapid growth will ensure a leadership position for Wyse in these important markets. Karl-Heinz takes over from Peter van Caspel who has achieved significant growth in this territory already and now takes on a new an exciting challenge within Wyse.”

Based in The Netherlands, Peter van Caspel will become Sales Director for a new Benelux and Nordic region for Wyse. Jordan adds, “Benelux has always been a strong market for Wyse as has Norway, but we have previously lacked the focus to really maximize our business across the whole of this region. Now with Peter’s leadership and strong track record, we have the right team in place to change this.”
