Jonathan Bridges will lead the company’s enterprise cloud strategy

Cloud, networking and colocation service provider Exponential-e has this week appointed Jonathan Bridges as head of the company’s enterprise cloud business.

Bridges has worked in technology for the past two decades largely in roles that combine technical and sales expertise, having most recently served as global head of business development for Canopy’s platform as-a service portfolio.

Before that he served as a cloud sales specialist at Colt and Fujitsu, and served as an application delivery manager for HP.

“Jonathan brings a deep understanding of the cloud to Exponential-e and we are confident that he will be able to use this to help our customers extract greater value from their investments and accelerate the adoption of cloud-based infrastructures,” said Lee Wade, chief executive of Exponential-e.

“The cloud has become an integral part of IT systems,” he explained. “However, businesses are still resistant to moving all IT operations into a hosted environment, often starting their journey in stages. Using his specific emphasis on value-based selling, I am confident that Jonathan will play a key role in enabling Exponential-e to continue advancing forward in a high growth, competitive market.”

In his new role Bridges will lead the company’s cloud strategy, which is largely focused on the mid-market (though it does claim Channel 4, the Barbican and Fulham Football Club as customers as well).

Jonathan Bridges commented on his appointment: “In a constantly evolving marketplace, it is those organisations that can adapt, stay nimble and innovate rapidly that are poised to succeed. Looking in from the outside, Exponential-e has always been at the forefront of innovation. I’m delighted to be part of making sure that it continues to remain at the cutting edge of Cloud services and committed to helping customers harness the opportunities that the Cloud can bring to businesses.”
