Austin, TX, October 30, 2012

Spanning Cloud Apps, the makers of Spanning Backup for Google Workspace, the highest rated business-class backup provider in the Google Workspace Marketplace, announced today that Jeff Erramouspe has joined the company as chief revenue officer (CRO) to support the company’s rapid growth in sales and customer count. Effective immediately, Erramouspe is responsible for all marketing and sales activities that lead to top line revenue growth.

With monthly recurring revenue (MRR) increasing in excess of eight times year-over-year, Spanning sought out an industry veteran with both online marketing and enterprise sales experience to oversee top-line growth of the company. Erramouspe has over 20 years of marketing and general management experience in both entrepreneurial and Fortune 500 technology companies, making him an ideal fit for the position.

“Spanning is one of the most impressive organizations I’ve encountered in my career and I’m honored to be joining as CRO,” said Jeff Erramouspe, chief revenue officer, Spanning. “Our business is providing cloud data protection for both small and large enterprises, and Spanning has enterprise DNA at its core. That expertise has been the trigger for much of the growth we’re currently seeing and over 90% of our customers cite our experience and the way we conduct business as a Spanning advantage over our competitors.”

Spanning is expecting annual revenues for 2012 to be 10 times greater than in 2011. Businesses are choosing Spanning’s products because of the company’s focus on enterprise excellence within the Google Workspace ecosystem, including its bullet-proof business-grade security measures, such as the company’s recent completion of the rigorous SSAE-16 audit.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Jeff to the team,” said Charlie Wood, CEO and founder of Spanning. “As we scale the company alongside the growth in Google Workspace adoption worldwide, we’re focused on bringing in the best enterprise talent to support our customers as they move their critical productivity and collaboration tools to the cloud.”

Prior to Spanning, Jeff was the president of Manticore Technology, a leading provider of SaaS-based marketing automation solutions. He led Manticore through three successive years of revenue growth in the highly competitive marketing automation market and positioned the company for a successful merger with SalesEngine International, a leading technology-enabled marketing services provider. Prior to Manticore, Jeff held leadership and executive positions at StoredIQ, Digby, Vignette and Compaq.
