Seattle communications software company Varolii reached across Lake Washington for its new president and chief executive, hiring David McCann, general manager of Microsoft’s Windows Server product management team.
McCann was previously chief executive at Electronic Evidence and CarParts Technologies, and senior vice president at FileNet Software, leading up to its acquisition by IBM in 2006.
“Varolii is at a strategic intersection of cloud computing services and personalized consumer communications, reaching more than 75 million U.S. consumers each year for some of the world’s largest corporations,” McCann said in a release.
McCann replaces Nicholas Tiliacos, who stepped down after 10 years at the company.
Varolii provides software and services that companies use to deliver automated messages to employees and customers via phone, email, fax or text messages. It has around 250 employees and 450 customers.
