NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 12/03/13 -- KEMP Technologies, the leading provider of application-centric load-balancer solutions, appointed Dieter Huber as VP of Engineering, Mark Housman as VP of Sales-Americas and Joshua Lee as director of Strategic Alliances. The new leadership appointments are in response to KEMP's rapid expansion and skyrocketing sales of its LoadMaster virtual, software and hardware-based load balancers.
Dieter Huber joins KEMP from Corel GmbH and brings to the company 22 years of IT experience. He will be responsible for leading worldwide engineering and knowledge management, and bolstering the global engineering team.

As VP of Sales-Americas, Mark Housman will manage KEMP's sales teams in North and South America, and strengthen KEMP's partner ecosystem. Mark will focus on channels of distribution and avenues to enterprise customers, including resellers and provide oversight to KEMP's sales infrastructure.
Joshua Lee joins KEMP to provide market development expertise to the company's strategic alliance partners. Joshua is a Microsoft Certified Professional and former program strategist/product manager at Cisco. His scope is to expand cooperation with partners so that KEMP ADCs will be better positioned to immediately support mutual synergies starting with partner applications that ensure customers benefit from KEMP's cutting-edge technology advancements.
"As enterprises increasingly recognize the innovative value of KEMP's virtual ADCs, we are seeing explosive global sales growth for application-specific load balancing," said Ray Downes, CEO of KEMP.
