SOASTA Appoints Peter Galvin Senior Vice President of Marketing

SOASTA, the leader in cloud-based performance and functional testing, today announced Peter Galvin, a 20-year veteran of global technology marketing, has joined the company’s management team as senior vice president of marketing. Galvin is responsible for leading SOASTA’s communications, marketing strategy, and building awareness of the ground-breaking new release of its CloudTest® platform that delivers, for the first time, complete functional test automation for continuous multi-touch, gesture-based mobile applications through its TouchTest™ technology.

“Peter brings decades of experience in technology marketing to SOASTA, including demonstrated success in creating awareness for business-critical, cutting-edge technology,” said Tom Lounibos, CEO at SOASTA. “Demand is white-hot for performance and functional testing of consumer-facing applications for mobile, web, and social media. With proven expertise in building and articulating technology brand awareness and identity, Peter is the ideal person to make the businesses and the developer community aware of SOASTA’s agile CloudTest technology.”

Prior to SOASTA, Galvin was the Chief Marketing Officer for Proofpoint, the leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions. Before he joined Proofpoint, Galvin held a number of senior marketing leadership roles at technology services companies, including Senior Vice President of Marketing & Products at Openwave, where he directed their product management and go-to-market strategies while generating over $300 million in annual revenue. Prior to Openwave, Galvin was the Vice President of Marketing for Celequest, where he successfully launched the company. As the Vice President and General Manager at Inktomi Corporation (which was acquired by Yahoo!), Galvin managed the Traffic Server business unit for Carrier, Enterprise and Wireless markets.

“SOASTA is leading the next generation of test automation solutions, first pioneering the Cloud Testing category in 2008, and introducing TouchTest for mobile applications this year,” said Galvin. “SOASTA is making testing accessible to anyone, by using the cloud, eliminating complexity and providing actionable intelligence. The CloudTest Platform is the only solution agile enough to address the overwhelming need for fast, precision application testing. I cannot think of a better time to join this exciting and innovative organization.”
