BEDFORD, Mass. – June 23, 2014 – Data Intensity, the industry leader in managed services for Oracle technologies and applications, today announced the addition of industry veterans Mark Desautelle and Kevin Shone to the company’s senior leadership team. This expansion of the management team marks a new phase of the company’s evolution following record revenue performance in 2013.
Desautelle and Shone will work very closely with the Data Intensity team and partners to serve the company’s impressive roster of marquee customers across numerous industries – all of whom depend on Data Intensity to implement and manage the most critical components of their Oracle-based IT infrastructure and the core foundation of their operations.
“More and more companies are turning to application management and specialized hosting and cloud providers as a way to address their critical IT management needs,” said Kirk Arnold, CEO of Data Intensity. “And they are seeking a partner like Data Intensity that has invested in building the infrastructure, business model, and – most importantly – the team they can rely on to address their needs, and be an extension of their organization, day by day, 24×7. The addition of Mark and Kevin demonstrates our continued investment in the resources and the people who will help us deliver on our commitment to our customers. They will help us build on Data Intensity’s unparalleled success in blending cutting-edge infrastructure, operational excellence, and application know-how to provide better, more responsive service at the best value in the industry.”
As Senior Vice President of Sales, Desautelle is responsible for driving Data Intensity’s growth and increasing market share. He will oversee and manage sales, sales operations and overall revenue generation for the company. Prior to joining Data Intensity, Desautelle held a number of executive positions at SunGard Availability Services, most recently serving as Senior Vice President of Sales. In this role, he was responsible for all sales activity and revenue generation in the east region, with a focus on the company’s IT outsourcing solutions, managed services, cloud, and disaster recovery offerings.
Shone, an accomplished senior operating executive, brings more than 15 years of expertise in financial, accounting and legal experience to his role as Chief Financial Officer. He was previously Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer for privately held and publicly traded companies, including NextG Networks and Unica Corporation. He also held various back-office leadership roles at Cognos, Inc., including Vice President of Global Field Finance and Administration.
“The opportunity ahead is tremendous,” said Desautelle. “Companies are looking for ways to reduce the cost and complexity associated with IT infrastructure in Oracle environments, but without introducing unnecessary risk. By partnering with a company like Data Intensity, these companies gain access to the deepest bench of Oracle technical expertise in the industry, and an infrastructure and associated services that can address their needs their way, either as a remote managed service or on-premise. We offer a solution like no other, and I am thrilled to be a part of it.”
