Cleversafe Names Jon Zakin New CEO

Filed under: Executive Movements — janats @ 10:27 am

CHICAGO, May 22 — Cleversafe Inc., developer of Dispersed Storage software, today announced that Jonathan Zakin will lead the company as its new president and chief executive officer. Founder and former CEO, S. Christopher Gladwin will continue with Cleversafe as the company’s chief technology officer (CTO) and chairman of the board.

Zakin, a one-time Cleversafe investor who has served on the company’s Board of Directors since its formation, was previously a partner in Batterson, Cross, Zakin, L.L.C., an early stage venture capital firm, and owns Seaview Holdings L.L.C., an investment entity that actively invests in early-stage companies. He was chief executive officer and chairman of the Board of Directors at wireless broadband company Proxim Corp. Prior to Proxim, Zakin spent nine years with U.S. Robotics Inc., a leader in data communications equipment, as a director, and in various senior management positions.

“We have asked Jon to take a more active role in Cleversafe to help grow our company into a data storage market leader,” said Chris Gladwin, chairman of Cleversafe. “He has an impressive business track record in growing small companies, such as US Robotics, into large market leaders creating billions of dollars in value. The huge opportunity ahead of Cleversafe merits the high level of expertise that Jon has demonstrated throughout his career.”

Current approaches to storage backup and archiving rely on multiple copies, replication and synchronization technologies, which compromise security, add complexity and increase costs. Cleversafe’s Dispersed Storage software divides data into “slices” using mathematical algorithms and disperses them, via secure Internet connections, to multiple storage locations. An individual slice contains too little information to be useful on its own, but any majority of the slices can be used to perfectly recreate all the original data.
