Last month Nuxeo announced the that we were ready to invest in the next phase of our global expansion... and that building out our partner channel was an essential part of this strategy. Well, as of last week, we've taken a big step in executing on that plan. The management team at Nuxeo is pleased to welcome Rick Dobbs on board in the role of Director of Channels. The Nuxeo Galaxy partner program has demonstrated great success for us in its first full year of operation... and now it's time to rev it up... and Rick will help us lead that charge.

With years of alliance management with key content management vendors such as EMC, Hummingbird and Mobius, Rick brings deep ECM market knowledge and an enthusiasm for this always-evolving part of the technology world. Rick's a respected ex-colleague from my Hummingbird days who has stayed a great pal, (thank you Facebook and LinkedIn), and I know our current and prospective Galaxy partners will benefit from his experience and great work ethic.

Rick will be blogging here on Nuxeo as he builds his partner strategy and learns the ropes in the world of open source. If you're on twitter, you can follow him @DocsterRick
