Watertown, MA (PRWEB) May 24, 2010
Netage Solutions, Inc., a premier provider of Web-based CRM and front-office solutions for the alternative assets industry, today announced the appointment of Michael Dullea to the newly created position of Director of Product Development. A skilled product manager with 15 years of experience in the financial services industry, Michael will drive all development efforts at Netage, ensuring that the Dynamo™ platform continues to deliver market-leading capabilities for alternative investment firms.
Mr. Dullea brings a unique blend of product management and financial industry expertise to Netage, having led development activities at several vertical-specific vendors. Most recently, he served as Vice President, Product Management at Navagate, Inc., a provider of CRM and Sales Force Automation (SFA) software for the insurance and wealth management industries. There, he oversaw all phases of the product development lifecycle, including roadmap planning, requirements gathering, use case design, and rollout planning. Mr. Dullea has also held product management positions with Thomson Financial and COR Financial Solutions. He has an M.B.A. from the F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business at Babson College, and a B.S. in Finance from Boston College.
“Across the alternative assets universe, Netage Solutions is known for front-office solutions that are built on cutting-edge technology and industry best practices,” said Krassen Draganov, Netage’s CEO and Co-Founder. “With the addition of Mike to our product development team, we have greatly increased our capacity to innovate in response to changing market needs. With sophisticated solutions that are increasingly tailored to their workflow, our clients will reap even greater benefits and value.”
At Netage, Mr. Dullea will be responsible for spearheading product development, defining roadmap objectives, managing release cycles, and streamlining the overall development process. This increased oversight and process improvement will enhance Netage’s agile development model, which has been in place since the company’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform was introduced. As opposed to traditional vendors, which issue only one or two large releases each year, Netage releases smaller, more frequent product updates that are largely client-driven. These upgrades are applied seamlessly to SaaS clients, ensuring they’re always ahead of the curve.
“I jumped at the opportunity to join Netage because of its technical expertise and laser focus on the alternative assets industry,” said Michael Dullea. “Working for a generic software vendor simply wasn’t an option. I love being able to drill into client needs and deliver solutions that have a direct, tangible impact on productivity and results.”
