Catchpoint™, the leader in next-generation Digital Experience Monitoring (DEM), today announced three new appointments to its executive team. Nik Koutsoukos is Catchpoint’s new Vice President of Product Marketing; Bill Eastman assumes the role of Vice President, Solution Engineering; and Josh Delisle has been appointed Vice President of Global Business Development.
“The addition of Nik, Bill, and Josh to our team rounds out our extensive bench and will help us maintain our category leadership in the months and years ahead,” says Mehdi Daoudi, CEO and co-founder of Catchpoint.
Nik Koutsoukos is a 25-year veteran with extensive experience in marketing, product management, strategy development, and GTM execution. He was previously Vice President of Product Marketing at Riverbed Technology, a position he held for over five years. Prior to Riverbed, Nik held senior-level positions at Empirix, Crossbeam Systems (acquired by Blue Coat) and 3Com. He is based in Catchpoint’s Boston office and reports to Catchpoint CEO Mehdi Daoudi.
“Managing customer and employee digital experiences is more business-critical and at the same time much more difficult than ever before, with services and applications more widely distributed and with end-user performance expectations very high and growing,” comments Nik Koutsoukos. “Catchpoint’s monitoring platform is purpose-built to cope with this growing complexity as our solution is as distributed as the services and end-users it monitors. I am excited about the opportunity to help customers benefit from the value Catchpoint can deliver.”
Bill Eastman is a solution engineering expert, having led teams in the network (NPM), application (APM) and digital experience (DEM) monitoring. Bill was previously Director of Solutions Engineering, West, at Riverbed Technology. Before this, Bill was Associate Vice President, Solutions Engineering, at OPNET Technologies. Bill is based in Boise, Idaho, and reports to Chief Revenue Officer Tim Blunt.
“Digital Experience Monitoring is vital to ensure customer and employee success and brand integrity,” says Bill Eastman. “Recent internet instability shows how essential it is that organizations monitor their services from everywhere, including cloud, backbone, and last mile. Catchpoint’s eyes-everywhere approach enables our customers to be proactive and see how their applications are performing wherever end users are located.”
Josh Delisle is an experienced sales leader with a demonstrated history of working in the information technology and services industry. Previously, he had been Director of Sales and North American New Business at Oracle; VP of Sales at FlowTraq, a Riverbed company; and VP of Worldwide Sales at CustomerGauge. “As demand for Catchpoint’s solutions increases worldwide, I am excited to help the company scale its world-class sales organization,” notes Delisle, who is based in Bedford, New Hampshire and also reports to Chief Revenue Officer Tim Blunt.
