Catchpoint Systems announced the hiring of technology industry veteran Robert (Bob) Ranaldi as its first Chief Operating Officer.

This move is expected to bolster Catchpoint's international expansion as Ranaldi grows the company's worldwide sales effort and operations.

Ranaldi will be responsible for enhancing customer relationships and support; devising go-to market resources and strategy for sales; and all other elements of sales team enablement including training. He will be based in Catchpoint's Boston offices and report to founder and CEO Mehdi Daoudi.

"I look forward to leveraging my large enterprise experience within a smaller organization such as Catchpoint, where the impact will be more immediate," says Ranaldi. "I was immediately impressed with Catchpoint's customer-centric culture, compelling technology and impressive customer base. I am confident my experience will help them build and sustain a productive, powerful sales engine resulting in significant company growth."

Ranaldi has 25 years of technology industry experience, including 18 years at PTC, a global provider of technology platforms and solutions. During Ranaldi's tenure as EVP of Worldwide Sales, PTC doubled their valuation and stock price, attesting to his skill in delivering strong bottom-line management combined with top-line results in an international marketplace.

"Bob began his PTC career as a sales representative and rose through the ranks to become EVP of Sales," says Mehdi Daoudi, CEO and Co-founder of Catchpoint Systems. "He knows what it takes to rally a sales team, instill a winning attitude and generate strong revenue results over the long term. With Bob on board, we are excited to see our business grow and evolve to the next level."
