Yankee Group today announced that successful serial entrepreneur Jaime Ellertson is joining its board of directors. Ellertson is CEO and founder of Cloudfloor, a startup serving the emerging enterprise cloud computing market.
“Jaime’s proven track record of building high-growth businesses and delivering exceptional investor returns will be invaluable to Yankee Group as we develop and execute the next phase of our strategic investment plan,” said Terry Waters, Yankee Group’s President and CEO. “We look forward to leveraging his strategic and operating expertise as we expand our thought leadership and influence in the dynamic mobile marketplace. I am personally looking forward to working with Jaime to drive Yankee Group forward.”
“I’m excited about working with Yankee Group’s board and management team at this pivotal time for the firm,” Ellertson said. “Yankee Group has all the ingredients for growth—a stellar brand, unique intellectual property and a renewed focus on product and service delivery innovation—necessary to help their customers succeed in the highly volatile mobile space.”
Ellertson’s track record in building and nurturing successful technology businesses is unprecedented. Prior to Cloudfloor, he was CEO of Internet performance management provider Gomez, which he led through an IPO that resulted in its sale to Compuware (NASDAQ: CPWR) in 2009. Prior to Gomez, he served as CEO, president and a director of S1 (NASDAQ: SONE), a software provider to the financial services marketplace. As CEO and chairman of the board of Interleaf, he orchestrated the highly successful turnaround of the company and saw its public market capitalization increase over 7,000 percent, culminating in its acquisition by BroadVision (NASDAQ: BVSN) in 2000.
Prior to Interleaf, Ellertson founded several high-growth software companies, including Document Automation, Openware Technologies and Purview Technologies. He serves on the board of directors of Everbridge, Qvidian and Cloudfloor.
