Aptum Strengthens Leadership Team with Key Appointments 

Aptum, a global provider of Managed Services and Advisory & Consulting Services, today announced the appointment of Ian Rae as CEO and President of the company, JP Rosato as Chairman of the Board, and David Wigglesworth as Chief Revenue Officer. These strategic additions to the executive team are integral to Aptum’s vision to capitalize on the growing AI-driven demand of Multi-Cloud solutions in the market.

Ian Rae assumes the role of CEO and President effective September 1, 2023, following Aptum’s successful acquisition of CloudOps in January 2023. He will succeed Susan Bowen, who, during her remarkable five-year tenure, expanded the company’s product offerings and transformed Aptum into a global Multi-Cloud Managed Services and Advisory & Consulting Services provider.

A seasoned entrepreneur and technology visionary, Rae founded CloudOps in 2005, as well as cloud.ca, a leading Canadian cloud computing platform. He serves on the board of Air Transat and recently completed a board appointment with Genome Canada. He is actively involved as an advisor and angel investor in the Montréal, Québec, enterprise technology startup community. With his extensive expertise in cloud operations, software development, and managed services, Rae brings invaluable insights to his new leadership role.

JP Rosato, Operating Partner at DigitalBridge, has been appointed Aptum’s new Chairman. With over 30 years of extensive design, engineering, and operations experience within large, complex technology environments, Rosato’s expertise will be instrumental in accelerating and driving Aptum’s business growth. He has played a pivotal role in developing innovative services, defining monetization strategies for technology assets and investments, and establishing groundbreaking partnerships between enterprises and providers.

Aptum is also thrilled to welcome David Wigglesworth as Chief Revenue Officer. With more than 25 years of experience in sales leadership, sales operations, demand generation, and territory development, Wigglesworth’s proven track record will be pivotal in leading the sales organization across the U.S., Canada, Latin America, UK, and Europe. His expertise in SaaS, business continuity, storage, networking, cloud, and professional services will empower Aptum to provide superior solutions to its customers, helping them optimize workloads across hyperscale, regional, private, and edge cloud platforms.

Wigglesworth’s most recent role was Senior VP of Global Sales at Panzura, and prior to that he held senior executive positions at Commvault, OVH, VMware, and EMC Corporation.
