LONDON, February 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AppSense, the leading provider of user virtualisation technology, has recruited business development specialist Edwin Rombeek as sales manager as part of a significant expansion in the Benelux region. Rombeek, based in Arnhem, Netherlands, will be responsible primarily for user virtualisation and data centre solution sales and developing business opportunities with AppSense's strategic partners.
Commenting on his appointment Rombeek said: "User virtualisation dramatically changes the way organisations manage their desktop environment, enabling them to be more dynamic and agile as well as saving costs. It is a genuinely disruptive technology which can have a positive impact on the user experience of all knowledge workers. This is an exciting time to be part of AppSense, and expanding the company's operations into a key strategic European region is a welcome challenge."
AppSense announced record growth in 2010; with 1.5million licences sold during the calendar year, a 60 per cent increase in revenues and 43 per cent increase in headcount. Rombeek's recruitment is a result of this growth and recent investment into new EMEA locations, with the opening of new offices in Paris and Oslo.
