iTKO Announces Jon Lauck as Chief Operating Officer to Accelerate Company’s Growth and Expand Customer Base

iTKO, the leading provider of testing, validation and virtualization solutions for distributed enterprise applications, today announced that Jon Lauck has joined iTKO as Chief Operating Officer to further accelerate the company’s sales growth and expand its marquee enterprise customer base. Mr. Lauck will lead iTKO’s sales, marketing and partner organizations, drawing upon his extensive track record and prior experience elevating innovative, mid-stage companies into billion dollar organizations with dominant market positions.

“iTKO’s test, validation, and particularly our virtualization offerings are the right product at the right time for so many organizations struggling to deliver software in an unprecedented environment of complexity and change,” said Shridhar Mittal, iTKO’s CEO. “Jon is the perfect executive to catapult us to the next level of growth in this dynamic market. His experience and background are a tremendous complement to our management team.”

With more than 25 years of experience in high growth technology organizations, Mr. Lauck has held a wide range of executive management positions at Oracle, Parametric Technologies, Chatham Technologies (acquired by Flextronics Corporation), and Fuego (acquired by BEA) where he was Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Lauck has been on iTKO’s Board of Advisors for over two years, where he advised on corporate strategy and watched iTKO’s LISA product deliver increasing strategic value to a growing range of industry leading enterprise customers. As Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Lauck will help iTKO embark on a new stage of growth, followed by a record year of expansion in 2008 and the acquisition of several new marquee customers in 2009.

“It’s rare to see such a strong combination of product innovation, critical market need, and customer success together as it exists at iTKO,” said Jon Lauck, COO. “I’ve been involved with several innovative technology companies, and iTKO has one of the few game changing technologies I’ve seen that addresses the core problem of delivering the real agility originally promised from distributed applications and agile development techniques. iTKO is ideally positioned to address these critical market needs, and I’m excited to join the iTKO team and accelerate its already impressive growth.”
