Brian Dudley has joined Elastic Grid in the position of Chief Revenue Officer, and Kathryn Rose has been appointed Vice President, Business Strategy and Development. The new executives will be instrumental in developing and introducing key business strategies designed to further enhance the company’s products and services, and oversee its expansion into new market segments.
Working out of Los Gatos, California, Brian, who was previously at NetLine Corporation as Revenue Strategist, will be responsible for all activities that drive awareness and generate revenue for Elastic Grid and its growing client list. He will also be accountable for integrating and aligning marketing, sales, customer and partner support.

Kathryn Rose joins Elastic Grid from SharedVue (now Zift Solutions), where she spent three years as their top sales performer, key strategist and event speaker. An internationally renowned best-selling author, Kathryn has written nine books on social media and relationship marketing.
Kathryn will be based in Boston, Massachusetts, and her newly defined role will see her focused on shaping the company’s go-to-market strategy as well as client retention, growth and acquisition. She will work directly with clients to help them define channel strategies and provide solutions that address the varying needs of their diverse partners.
