Former Barnes and Noble Executive Will Lead Expansion of Cloud Offerings
LOS ANGELES, CA – dinCloud, a cloud transformation company, today announced the addition of Barry Weber as Chief Technology Officer (CTO). An IT veteran, Weber brings thirty years of proven success as a leader in IT in the retail, financial services, professional services, and high tech industries.
Weber will lead all aspects of infrastructure engineering and future technology development for dinCloud, making him an integral ingredient in the company’s strategic direction and future growth. Weber is also chartered with translating dinCloud’s business strategy into scalable and reliable service offerings that will ensure the company’s leadership in the competitive landscape.
“We are very excited to have attracted someone of Barry’s caliber for CTO,” said Kevin Schatzle, CEO of dinCloud. “Barry has the perfect combination of deep technology understanding and process driven operational experience necessary to implement and support our customers’ IT Infrastructure inside their virtual private data center.”
Previously, Weber was President and CTO for T3 Dynamics, where he delivered cloud transformation services and ITIL ITSM process change for multi-billion dollar organizations. Prior executive roles include vice president of information technology for the Barnes and Noble e-commerce division, and CIO of Lieberman Research Worldwide. Additionally, Weber built a practice area for Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC), and was director of U.S. strategic services for Mercury Interactive (acquired by HP in 2006).
“The focus of dinCloud is clear – to provide a heavenly experience for its customers and partners. For me, this translates into driving dinCloud’s technology and service offerings to provide a full platform for customers at a price point that fits their budget,” said Weber. “While there is a lot of technology available for those that want to leverage cloud, before dinCloud, I hadn’t seen a full service offering that satisfied the needs of this market at the right price. I am excited about the opportunity to take what is real and available today at dinCloud and to join the team in extending it far beyond what is available in other IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) clouds.”
