Mimecast Appoints Justin Pirie as Director of Communities and Content

Cloud Blogger and Analyst to Join Leading Second Generation Email SaaS Provider

Mimecast, a unified email management company offering SaaS-based email security continuity, archiving, and policy control, today announced the appointment of Justin Pirie as Director of Communities and Content. At Mimecast Justin will be responsible for the outreach and evangelism programs, and will be integral in building awareness for Mimecast's position as a leading unified email management provider.

Pirie is a leading SaaS and cloud specialist; he authors the influential "This Week in SaaS"; blogs and runs the largest SaaS community in the world, with over 17,500 members. Justin has been in IT over ten years, gravitating towards SaaS over the last five. This last year he has been consulting to companies large and small, helping them create successful SaaS products and strategy, and before that he was an officer at Endeavors Technology, the inventors of application virtualisation.

"I'm really excited to be joining Mimecast- there aren't enough British companies playing at a global level in SaaS. They've got a great team, excellent technology, traction, a compelling vision and are well funded" said Pirie. "The really interesting thing about the technology is that it uses a grid style data architecture, similar to Gmail or Google Apps, which means you get Gmail style horizontal scalability, speed and searchability, but for Exchange."

Peter Bauer, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer at Mimecast said, "Justin's appointment will allow Mimecast to engage much more effectively in the extensive Cloud debate that is happening all over the world. He is an accomplished conference speaker, blogger and social networker; a recognised expert in the SaaS community who will help us drive the SaaS agenda and encourage more enterprises to acquire SaaS technologies."
