SAN FRANCISCO, CA, July 18, 2017 – Rescale, a leading cloud platform provider of simulation software and high-performance computing (HPC) solutions, today announced that Jonathan Oakley has joined the company as vice president of marketing. Oakley has a background in engineering software and 15 years of experience in North American enterprise sales, marketing and business development for CST, a high-growth German-based simulation software company, through to its successful acquisition by Dassault Systemes in 2016.
Oakley will form part of the Rescale executive team and will be responsible for building the marketing team at Rescale and developing its core messaging, branding, and product awareness strategy, ensuring that the market understands the full potential and benefits of Rescale’s turnkey cloud HPC solution.
“Jonathan brings a mix of engineering and business growth experience to Rescale,” said Joris Poort, CEO at Rescale. “The company looks forward to accelerating market awareness and bringing the Rescale solution to a market that is eager to find cost-effective and scalable alternatives to on-premise HPC.”
Previously, Oakley worked at BAE Systems, Cobham, and CST of America. At CST, as VP of sales & marketing he helped to grow the North American operation from 3 to 50 people over a period of 15 years and opened two California offices in addition to the Boston headquarters. During his tenure, CST North America maintained year-over-year revenue growth with a high CAGR.
“AT CST I saw an increasing requirement for robust high-performance computing as the software capability increased and analysts started to create larger, system-level simulations,” said Oakley. “Customer on-premise hardware was often a bottleneck, with queuing or poor performance causing design throughput delays. With today’s product timelines so tight, Rescale offers a great alternative turnkey solution by bursting or moving the big compute problem securely to the multi-cloud. I am very excited to be at the start of this 3.0 phase of cloud computing and look forward to building global awareness of Rescale’s solutions.”
