Aliro Quantum appoints Michael Wood as Chief Marketing Officer
Michael Wood has been appointed as the company's first Chief Marketing Officer.
Wood will lead Aliro's global marketing initiatives and will be responsible for messaging, positioning, growth marketing, demand generation, analysis, and media relations.
He brings more than 30 years of experience in enterprise networking, security and software, as well as a passion for launching new solutions, categories and technologies.
Wood joins Aliro from Versa Networks, where he built and led the marketing organisation.
He has also held senior leadership positions at VMware, VeloCloud Networks, Akamai and Cisco.
Wood joins recent appointee Michael Gaffney, Aliro's Head of Public Sector, on the company's senior management team. Gaffney recently opened Aliro's Washington DC presence to support the company's expanding government and public sector initiatives following a career in Army intelligence and years implementing cloud and security solutions for the government.
"With Michael Wood and Michael Gaffney aboard, Aliro will continue its impressive growth," says Dr Prineha Narang, founder and Chief Technology Officer with Aliro.
"The respective experience and enthusiasm these two leaders bring to the company will accelerate our mission to build the first scalable quantum networks," Nurang adds.
"It's an incredibly exciting time to join Aliro Quantum, and I look forward to helping to build, market, and brand commercially available quantum networks that establish unhackable connectivity, scale quantum computers, and operationalise distributed quantum sensing," Wood says.
