Avectra, the leading provider of web-based association management software (AMS), has named Mark Yohai vice president of global business development. Mr. Yohai joins Avectra with deep experience growing revenue and leveraging partnerships with a focus on international business development.

“As the pioneer and established leader of on-demand AMS solutions in the United States and Canada, Avectra is well positioned to accelerate customer adoption and contribute to the success of member-based organizations of all sizes, in all industries, around the globe,” said Richard Davis, chief executive officer of Avectra. “Mark’s proven track record of opening and growing international markets for innovative software companies like Avectra is a key component for our company’s continued growth.”

Avectra’s netFORUM association management software delivers powerful Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) membership management solutions for member-based organizations. With products designed to meet the needs of organizations of all sizes, Avectra’s innovative, web-based membership management tools integrate an association’s data, business processes and member services so busy association executives can focus on the more important aspects of managing their organization – engaging members and providing them with access to all the association has to offer.

“The success of the on-demand software model and Avectra’s leadership in their specific market space inspired me to join this company,” said Mark Yohai, Avectra’s vice president of global business development. “Momentum and adoption of Avectra’s SaaS model continues to reach new heights, as millions of association members benefit from the innovation, time-to-value and ease-of-use Avectra delivers to member based organizations.”

Yohai joins Avectra after leading worldwide sales business development for AppZero, a leading vendor of application virtualization software. Before AppZero, Yohai held a senior level position with Citrix’s virtualization software division where he established and grew relationships with global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) including NEC, Fujitsu-Siemens and Intel. Yohai has also held key executive, sales and technical positions at leading software companies including Ardence, Applix, Cisco Systems, and Informix.
