OTTAWA, Nov. 13, 2017 /CNW/ - Leonovus Inc. ("Leonovus") (TSXV: LTV) is pleased to announce the hiring of Eric Lee, formerly the Oracle Global Account Director for hardware, software, cloud and applications sold internationally through the massive Tech Data network.
Mr. Lee starts with Leonovus on November 13, 2017, as Vice President of Business Development for the USA. He has thirty years of sales and sales management experience with companies such as Oracle, StorageTek, Sun, CISCO, Memorex and Southwestern Bell. He completed his BSc Industrial Engineering at Northwestern University, an MBA from Southern Illinois University and lives in Boca Raton, Florida.

His extensive experience and contacts, specifically in the cloud software and storage technology markets, will accelerate our growth in the USA and other locations around the world. Eric's first tasks will be to identify early adopter customers, hire and build a team of four to six sales Directors across the USA, and recruit potential channel partners," said Michael Gaffney, Chairman, and CEO.
I am excited to join a company with such incredible software technology, and I look forward to presenting the Leonovus blockchain-hardened software-defined storage solution to many customers and channel partners", said Eric Lee, Vice President Business Development.
