Andrew Dixon has joined Igloo Software's executive team as vice president of marketing and operations. Andrew came from Microsoft Canada, where he was a vice president as well and served the company for nearly two decades.
"I'm excited to join a company that is poised to capitalize on the next great disruptive technology in the enterprise," said Andrew. "We stand at the cusp of a movement towards a more open, agile and collaborative business, driven by social technologies and cloud computing, and IGLOO is well positioned to step forward and seize a leadership position as this shift takes place."
"I think I speak for everyone at the company when I say that we are thrilled to have someone as talented and experienced as Andrew on our executive team," remarked Dan Latendre, CEO of IGLOO Software. "He understands what it takes to transform great technology and a promising market opportunity into a vibrant and thriving business."
Igloo's addition of Andrew follows a recent slew of accomplishments, including making Proft Magazine's Profit Hot 50 list and for a third straight year being positioned in Gartner's Magic Quadrant report for social software in the workplace. The Kitchener-based firm saw its licensing revenue grow by almost 400% in the first half of this year.
