Did you know GFI Software was acquired by Aurea in 2015? Aurea, founded in 2012 and based in Austin, Texas, is the technology behind some of the world’s greatest customer and employee experiences, for the largest and most successful brands. Until now, GFI has operated separately to Aurea.

To maximize and leverage the strengths of both organizations, Aurea is bringing GFI Software., Kerio Technologies Inc., Exinda Inc. and their affiliates into the Aurea family of companies as an Aurea SMB Solutions division. GFI Software will now be referred to as GFI Software, Aurea SMB Solutions.

GFI has a long legacy of providing small and medium-sized businesses with the solutions they need to discover, manage, and secure their IT environment efficiently, and that will not stop now!

New leadership

As part of these exciting changes, GFI Software welcomes Dan Beer, who joins the division as Senior Vice President and General Manager. Going forward Dan will be responsible for all operating functions of GFI Software, Aurea SMB Solutions. He has more than 20 years of experience leading software partner channels, corporate acquisitions, products, support, sales, services and more at companies such as IBM, and You.i TV.

Speaking with TechTalk about the corporate branding updates, Dan said: “By bringing GFI and Aurea closer together as Aurea SMB Solutions, we are going to be able to better serve our partners and customers.”

Johannes Kamleitner continues to lead the company’s sales and marketing efforts as SVP and Chief Revenue Officer. To find out more about the leadership team, visit www.gfi.com/company/leadership.
