Limelight Networks, a global provider of content delivery (CDN) technology and services, has announced that Doug Bewsher and Scott Genereux will join its Board of Directors. Mr. Bewsher is currently CEO of Leadspace while Mr. Genereux is EVP of Veritas.
“Doug and Scott have more than 50 years of industry experience between them, and they’ll be great additions to our board,” said Walter Amaral, Chairman of Limelight’s Board of Directors. “Their expertise and insights will be extremely beneficial to Limelight and our shareholders. We look forward to working with them to help create sustained profitable growth and long-term shareholder value.”
Doug Bewsher is currently CEO of Leadspace, a leading venture-backed company in the predictive analytics and data management space. Before Leadspace, he was CMO at both Salesforce.com and Skype, and prior to that he was at McKinsey where he co-led the North American CRM practice. Mr. Bewsher has an M.B.A. from INSEAD Paris, and an M.A. in Physics from Oxford University.
Scott Genereux is EVP of Veritas where he is responsible for worldwide field operations. Most recently, he headed up cloud infrastructure-as-a-service sales for Oracle. Prior to Oracle, Mr. Genereux served as CEO of cloud storage pioneer Nirvanix and also held global sales and marketing leadership roles at QLogic and DataDirect Networks. Genereux has a B.S. in Management Information Systems from California State University at Northbridge.
In addition, Joe Gleberman has announced his intent to resign from Limelight’s board before the next annual shareholders meeting. Mr. Gleberman has served on the board for over 10 years, joining the Limelight board in 2006 as the Goldman Sachs representative. Mr. Gleberman’s decision to resign as a director of the company is driven by personal reasons, states Limelight. It would not be the result of any disagreement with the company relating to its operations, policies or practices.
