“ClearCube is a great company with a committed team of marketers, engineers and sales people. We invented PC Blade technology and were a pioneer of the VDI space. If there is one thing ClearCube has done amazingly well, it is innovation. And I am confident, that under Kirk’s leadership, that trend will continue and accelerate.” said outgoing President and CEO, Randy Printz.
ClearCube Technology has also promoted Jim Zakzeski to Vice President, Sales and Marketing.
