Microsoft ISV Nerdio has appointed Gavriella Schuster, a former Microsoft vice president and global channel chief, to its board of directors.
Schuster (pictured) has spent 25 years at Microsoft, where she most recently led the global recruitment, enablement, and engagement of Microsoft partners in her previous role as Microsoft CVP.
In her new role, she will be responsible for supporting and strengthening Nerdio’s continued investments in its growing customer base and community. Current initiatives include expanding its staff and presence internationally in Australia, Canada and the UK.
“Nerdio is truly in a class of its own when it comes to enabling any company to benefit from Microsoft’s virtual desktop offerings regardless of their current environment, IT staff or technical expertise in Azure,” said Schuster. “I have long admired the company for its leadership in both the channel community and Microsoft’s partner ecosystem, and relish working with this team in my new capacity as a board member."
Shuster joins Nerdio board members Bret Maxwell, MK Capital; Harry Zoberman, Zoberman Advisory Group; and Andy Lees, another former top Microsoft executive with extensive product and GTM expertise. Schuster also sits on the board of directors for Open Systems, Chinasoft International, Women in Cloud, and SHE.
“We are thrilled to welcome Gavriella to our board of directors amid a time of tremendous growth and opportunity for our company,” added Vadim Vladimirskiy, CEO and co-founder, Nerdio. “Her proven track record of partner-related accomplishments and driving organisational success on a global scale will be advantageous in propelling Nerdio’s international growth and adoption by organisations interested in leveraging Microsoft technologies.”
