VKernel Corporation, a provider of easy-to-use and quick-to-deploy virtual appliances for managing virtual server environments, today announced the appointment of Gene Fay as vice president of sales. In this role, Fay is responsible for VKernel’s worldwide sales and will be instrumental in expanding the company’s go-to-market strategy and building successful channel partner programs.
