Hello. It’s me again–Dr. Lewey Anton. I’ve been commissioned by insideHPC to track who’s moving on up in high performance computing.
Here are the most recent developments:
- Steve Barber left his long-time position as CEO of Xyratex in April. Interim CEO Ernest Sampias leads the search for a new chief exec there.
- Robert “Bo” Ewald is now President of quantum computing vendor D-Wave in the U.S. as well as the company’s Chief Revenue Officer.
- John Josephakis has moved on from his job as Sr. VP Worldwide HPC Sales at DDN to join Cray as VP of worldwide sales.
