Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 28, 2008
Earth Class Mail Corp., a global service that delivers postal mail online, announces the appointment of 15-year Microsoft veteran Rajeev Dujari as its Vice President of Product Management.
Dujari will be responsible for defining the product roadmap for the company's breakthrough online postal-mail delivery service. Continued software innovation and operational efficiency will accelerate the growth of Earth Class Mail's international customer base. Earth Class Mail's customer base includes individuals, small businesses, enterprises, government agencies, military branches and national postal services.
"We are truly fortunate to attract senior talent like Rajeev to Earth Class Mail, especially given our strategic partnership with Microsoft's Postal Group and the strong alignment of our investor base (including lead venture investor Ignition Partners) with Microsoft," said Ron Wiener, CEO of Earth Class Mail. "Having such a high level of Microsoft expertise within our engineering leadership will help to streamline integration of our web-based application, which is built on the Microsoft .NET platform, and will synergize with key Office System components such as Outlook and SharePoint Portal Server."
At Microsoft, Dujari established a track record of delivering globally recognized innovation in products and services. During his first 10 years at the company, he made key technical contributions to Microsoft's Windows operating system and five major releases of its Internet Explorer web browser. He was also an inventor on 12 issued patents, with two currently pending. Over the past five years, Dujari led product units charged with delivering major advances to the company's Exchange Server, Office Live Meeting and Visual Studio products.
"I'm fortunate to have had the opportunity to shape 18 well-known products at Microsoft," said Dujari. "I'm excited to apply that experience in helping drive the creation of a global service for individuals, businesses and national posts at Earth Class Mail."
Dujari's areas of expertise include desktop clients, enterprise services, hosted services and software platforms and tools, as well as staff recruiting, mentoring, team-building and offshore project management. He earned a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and a M.S. in Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where his graduate research focused on parallel algorithms for real-time speech recognition.
