Northern Names Jonas Areskoug CEO; To Focus on Increasing Global Sales of Flagship Storage Suite

Stockholm – 27 January 2011 – NORTHERN, global providers of flexible, easy-to-administer solutions for User Data Management, has named Jonas Areskoug as CEO, replacing interim CEO Gunnar Bohlin. Areskoug has held senior management positions with several prominent international software companies, including SunGard and Pointsec Mobile Technologies.

”Growth projections for storage make Northern’s user-driven storage solution a must-have for CIOs and IT administrators looking for visibility and insight into what information is stored in their environment, and an intuitive, flexible tool that allows them to assert control over the enterprise,” says Jonas Areskoug. ”I'm excited about joining an experienced team focused on meeting the core storage challenges facing organizations of all sizes and ultimately grow sales of our flagship product, Northern Storage Suite."

Northern Storage Suite is used by more than half of Global Fortune 100 companies as well as public sector agencies, colleges and universities, and prominent institutions to efficiently and cost-effectively manage their critical enterprise storage needs. Boeing, Microsoft, and Nike are just a few of the organizations that have selected Northern Storage Suite.  

”Northern has developed advanced and award-wining technology that meets the real-world storage challenges of the world’s most prestigious and demanding organizations”, says Peter Larsson, chairman of the board at INTOI, Northern’s owner. ”Jonas Areskoug has the strategic vision, senior management experience, and successful track record to lead Northern and leverage the company's resources and market position to increase sales worldwide.”

Acting CEO Gunnar Bohlin will return to his previous position as VP of Marketing. Northern’s founder Thomas Vernersson will focus on strategic product development and strategic partnerships as Northern's Chief Technology Officer (CTO).

Northern Storage Suite is a software solution that enables organizations to constrain data growth, align the value of data with the cost of storage, and extend the life of storage infrastructure, making efficient storage usage a part of business culture. This is achieved through five areas of functionality; award-winning quotas, comprehensive reporting & trending, internal billing, automation & migration, and an end-user portal that encourages self-management. Northern Storage Suite provides multi-platform support, seamlessly integrating with NAS devices and SANs; there are also specific versions of the suite for EMC Celerra and NetApp NAS.
