App developer adds tech talent

BY CSA STAFF

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Appcelerator, a leading mobile development platform, has Gamiel Gran as VP of business development and Neeraj Gupta as VP of engineering.

Appcelerator’s portfolio includes eBay, Merck, Mitsubishi Electric, NBC, PayPal and Ray-Ban. It has more than 50,000 mobile applications deployed on 110 million devices. Its open source development platform, called Titanium, and Appcelerator Cloud Services are used to create native apps across multiple devices including iOS, Android, Windows and BlackBerry, as well as hybrid and HTML5 mobile Web.

The company will look to Gran, a Sierra Ventures partner who previously led channel efforts at IBM, Oracle and BEA, and Gupta, a 20-year software industry veteran recognized for his expertise in translating business objectives into engineering execution, to further its momentum in the enterprise mobility market.

"The incredible opportunity in this market is directly similar to the markets that I witnessed at Oracle and BEA in their early stages; both of these market leaders reached success with broad partner ecosystems," said Gran. "Appcelerator has already amassed a large partner community: the combined strengths of Appcelerator’s mobile platform and the closely aligned partner community have positioned Appcelerator in perhaps the most competitively distinct position."

For the past five years, Gran has led the Sierra Ventures CIO Advisory Board of more than 90 Fortune 500 CIOs and CTOs. With access to seasoned leaders from companies like eBay, Facebook and Merck, as well as cutting-edge entrepreneurs, Gran is a constant participant in the collective conversation on achieving mobility in the enterprise.

"Mobility is the mover of the decade, and Appcelerator already has the vision, the community and the technology to drive it. Aligning this to satisfy business imperatives that are growing by leaps and bounds will give customers and partners the confidence they need to plunge ahead," adds Gupta.

Intimately familiar with enterprise technology needs, Gupta led software development at Oracle for a decade before his most recent role as VP of engineering for mobile development startup Particle Code. There, he founded the company’s engineering division, experience he will leverage as he enhances Appcelerator’s processes and manages and expands Appcelerator’s global platform engineering team.

"As enterprise executives have realized the need for comprehensive mobile strategies and a mobile-first platform, we have continued to experience tremendous growth," said Appcelerator CEO Jeff Haynie. "Gamiel and Neeraj both bring the exact skills needed to solidify our leadership position in the enterprise. With Gamiel’s powerful network of customers and partners and Neeraj’s deep technical expertise, I foresee even more impressive growth in our future."
