February 29, 2012

Limelight Networks is pleased to announce the strengthening of its European team with the appointment of Thom Poole as International Marketing Director.

Poole, a professional, Chartered Marketer, brings more than 25 years’ international and digital marketing experience in the SaaS, Telecom and training sectors to Limelight. He is responsible for all marketing operations in Limelight’s EMEA and Asia Pacific regions, supporting the local teams in association with the head office in Arizona.

This is part of a wider expansion of Limelight Networks’ operations in EMEA and Asia Pacific, evidenced by a significant increase in sales and support staff resources over the last twelve months, and a subsequent move to larger premises in London.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to join a company that is not only growing in the region, but is really making a difference in the marketplace,” said Poole “The value-added solutions approach is one I have supported throughout my career and I see Limelight Networks has a wealth of powerful solutions value to offer the market that is yet to be exploited in the marketplace. There’s lots to be done, but I’ve joined a dedicated and professional team and I’m looking forward to putting marketing programmes in place that drive the expansion of Limelight Networks in the EMEA and Asia Pacific.”

VP of International Markets – George Fraser said, “Appointing Thom is just part of our overall commitment to our European and Asian business. We have grown the team substantially over the last twelve months, and the focus is on creating world-class marketing to support our sales teams.”
