In addition, he worked as director of marketing and product management for Cisco’s SaaS/managed services organization. Earlier in his career, Johnson worked at Ernst & Young, as well as AT&T. He is a former captain in the United States Marine Corps. Johnson holds a Masters in Telecommunications from Stevens Institute of Technology, a Master of Business Administration and Management from Webster University, and an undergraduate degree from Boston College.

Ilan Shmargad brings more than 20 years of leadership experience in business development, sales and management. He was a key player in helping launch and successfully expanding software companies that were acquired for over $100 million. His background includes serving as vice president of business development at Identify Software, acquired by BMC. At BMC, Shmargad was the leading partner executive at the Identify business unit. Previously, he was executive vice president of worldwide sales, marketing, and business development at a spin-off of Mercury Interactive, where he launched and managed U.S. field operations, channel operations in Europe, and executed strategic alliances with major technology companies and system integrators. Shmargad holds a Bachelors of Science in Computer Engineering from Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, and attended the Recanati-Wharton MBA Program at Tel Aviv University.

“We’re scaling to serve our growing clientele of global enterprises, government and education customers in North America and Europe,” said Yuval Cohen, CEO, Neebula Systems. “Our goal is to free today’s IT administrator from the drudgery of understanding details about how specific physical and virtual assets, among the thousands of assets deployed in a typical data center, combine to provide a business service while empowering them to manage services better by helping to pinpoint issues before they impact an end-user business service. Bob and Ilan will help us communicate this value and work with partners to make it a reality.”
