WSO2 promotes Jonathan Marsh to VP of Business Development and Devaka Randeniya to Director of Business Development

Mountain View, CA – November 20, 2008 – WSO2, the open source SOA company, today announced two promotions. Jonathan Marsh, formerly director of mashup technologies, has been named vice president of business development. Devaka Randeniya, previously business development manager, has been promoted to director of business development.

Jonathan has played a strategic role in contributing to WSO2’s business development efforts this year, most notably through his involvement in the joint interoperability efforts between Microsoft and WSO2. WSO2-enabled interoperability across Microsoft .NET and other Web service platforms was first highlighted in the StockTrader demo as part of the Microsoft Tech-Ed keynote by Bob Muglia, senior vice president of the Server and Tools Business at Microsoft, in June 2008.

In his role as vice president of business development, Jonathan will spearhead global expansion of the company’s strategic partnerships and named accounts in key vertical markets, as well as continue to lead WSO2’s interoperability initiatives with Microsoft. As director of business development, Devaka will manage business development program operations.

“Jonathan and Devaka have been instrumental in addressing the real-world needs of our customers’ SOAs—directly and through strategic partnerships,” said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, founder and CEO of WSO2. “We look forward to them building on this success and extending our commitment to providing enterprise customers with unmatched solutions for successfully implementing their SOAs.”
