In this newly created position, Cheyne will lead Igel’s strategic alliances and cloud partner expansion across cloud platforms including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud. He most recently worked as a business development leader for Google Cloud.

“Igel is well-positioned to capitalize on the rising wave of enterprises moving desktop services to the cloud and I am eager to be a key enabler of their expansion to fully support Microsoft Azure and AWS,” he said. “The Igel OS and Igel Universal Management Suite are in a class of their own — delivering the secure, centralized, manageable and efficient end-user computing experience today’s businesses demand. It’s going to be a fantastic experience to be a part of the proliferation of Igel-powered devices for robust cloud workspace computing.”

Prior to Google, Cheyne was director of global accounts for Teradici, working with the AWS team to expand Teradici’s reach into Amazon WorkSpaces service. He also served in channel and OEM account leadership roles for Microsoft.

In addition, he’s held sales management positions with Salesforce.com, Asera and Oracle.

“Casey joins Igel with a unique depth of expertise with leading cloud platform providers along with broad experience in cloud workspace and virtual desktop infrastructure,” said Jed Ayres, Igel’s CEO of North America and global CMO. “This along with his proven track record of business development success is a valued addition to the growing Igel leadership team. With his insight and direction, Igel will rapidly deliver on its end-user computing strategy to support any cloud, any device, anywhere.”
