PARIS, FRANCE, APRIL 22nd 2020 – Infovista, the leader in modern network performance, today announced the appointment of Ronald Rubens to the role of Executive Vice-President Global Enterprise and member of the executive leadership team.
Rubens brings a robust customer-centric approach and distinguished track record in executive roles driving growth for innovative software and technology companies across Europe, serving global enterprise organizations.
