Frisco-based Gearlinx announced that tech industry veteran Todd Rychecky is joining the company in the role of president of global sales and marketing, in addition to joining the board as an executive director.
Gearlinx, a cloud software as a service provider and the pioneer of Operational Resilience as a Service, said that Rychecky’s role is a key strategic leadership position aimed at speeding its growth and introducing cutting-edge innovations to the edge compute, network resilience, and business continuity market.
“We’re challenging old networking paradigms,” CEO Matt Ramsay said in a statement. “We approach networking and the edge differently by making remote access and edge compute easy at scale from the cloud. We give our customers network application superpowers and now, with Todd joining us, we have sales and marketing superpowers.”
With 23 years of experience in the industry, Rychecky has an extensive background in successfully selling network resilience and cloud solutions to both data center and edge markets, the company said. Notably, he played a crucial role during his tenure at Opengear, where he orchestrated 15 consecutive years of year-over-year revenue growth.
His efforts also contributed to that company’s journey from generating $700,000 in revenue to being acquired for $140 million by Digi International.
“I’m thrilled to be joining Gearlinx and collaborating with some of the brightest minds in technology to address genuine business challenges and streamline operational resilience.” Rychecky said in a statement. “Our vision is to revolutionize the consumption of edge compute and network resilience, optimize it through cloud integration, and provide access to operational information for enhanced life cycle management, empowering informed business decisions.”
“Customers will benefit from world-class feature innovation and a substantial 40% reduction in CAPEX, while our reseller partners will thrive on a recurring revenue business model and a more predictable sales pipeline,” Rychecky added.
Earlier this year, Gearlinx brought in a new CEO and executive director, Matt Ramsay.
