Thin Client News – IGEL Founding Father Heiko Gloge Passes CEO Torch To Jed Ayres
‘This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity focused on how the world is going to consume applications and Windows desktops,’ says new IGEL CEO Jed Ayres. ‘It’s a Cinderella moment in my career. It’s a great honor, but it’s also a huge responsibility because of the heritage, tradition and stability that Heiko brought to this company.’
The $1 billion goal comes as the 20-year-old company moves to capture the exploding cloud workspaces opportunity with a blockbuster partnership with software giant Microsoft. As the first Linux client for Microsoft’s fast-growing Windows Virtual Desktop, IGEL is in a unique position to capture significant edge operating system market share.
