Northern names Jaap Nebbeling Regional Sales Manager for the Benelux Region

Local presence to help organizations in Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg gain control of rapidly growing needs relating to user generated data.

Stockholm, Sweden – November 14, 2012: NORTHERN, leading provider of solutions for helping organizations gain insight into, control over and follow up of user-generated data, today announces that it has appointed Jaap Nebbeling as regional sales manager for Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. This marks the next step for Swedish company’s effort in establishing local presence in key regions over the world to better serve its existing and new customers.

Jaap Nebbeling has 25 years of experience in providing IT-based solutions to business problems. For thirteen years he was the CEO of Functional IT specializing in distribution of software solutions and before that he worked as Managing Director Benelux for Sunbelt Software.

Jaap will have the overall responsibility for sales and customer relationships in Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. The new office is established near Utrecht with easy access to the region.

“User generated data typically grows at a pace of 50% or more per year in most organizations, according to estimates made by several independent analysts. This makes it imperative that organizations, especially large ones with unwieldy storage infrastructures, adopt intelligent strategies that minimize the need for day-to-day management, contain costs, and make critical data readily available”, says Jonas Areskoug, Northern’s CEO. “Northern has for a long time had a loyal customer base in the Benelux region primarily served through channel partners. With Jaap onboard these customers and new prospects will have a local Northern contact to guide them through getting to grips with the ever escalating data growth.”

“Having worked for many years with security, performance and storage management software it’s easy to see the value Northern Storage Suite can bring to organizations here in the Benelux region”, say Jaap Nebbeling. “Helping organizations achieve maximum efficiency in their storage environment is becoming more and more crucial as the pool of unstructured data continues to grow, increasing the cost pressure on not only the IT department but also the business side.”
